Informations about Card Printers ...

One differentiates between 2 different printing variants. In thermal transfer printing resp. sublimation printing, the color of the inserted ribbon is printed directly onto the plastic card. In the case of re-transfer printing, on the other hand, printing is first done on a film, which is then applied to the card.
 

Thermal transfer printers ...

Most card printers, even the slightly cheaper models, work with thermal transfer printing. The advantage of this variant is the significantly lower prices of the card printer and the possibility of different color ribbons such as black, gold or silver print. This can significantly reduce the printing costs incurred. Furthermore, printing with a monochrome ribbon is considerably faster. Depending on the printer, up to 1000 plastic cards can be printed here per hour. This also makes it possible to print already pre-colored plastic cards in one color. This category includes our most popular card printers as Authentys 300, the Evolis Primacy, the Zebra ZC300 and Hiti CS200e, the HID Fargo DTC4500e, the Entrust Datacard Sigma DS2 or the HID Fargo DTC1500e.
 

Re-transfer printer ...

The re-transfer printing is the higher quality printing, but the costs are also considerably higher. For this, the colors are more brilliant and in this printing process, in contrast to thermal transfer printing, the complete plastic card can also be printed. There is no thin, unprinted strip on the edges of the plastic cards, which can be annoying, especially with darker layouts. There are already models that not only work with 300 dpi resolution, but already offer a resolution of 600 dpi. If you want to print fine lines or very small fonts and expect absolutely sharp images, then the new card printers with 600 dpi are the right choice. Monochrome printing tapes, however, are almost non-existent, in some cases a black ribbon is offered, but gold or silver is not printable here. Our bestsellers here are the HID Fargo HDP5000 at a truly sensational price, the HID Fargo HDP6600 with its 600 dpi resolution, the reference class printer Dascom DC-7600  and the Authentys Retrax with the possibility to print watermarks.
   

Ribbons for card printer...

Each card printer and almost every model has its own ribbons. A change between the models or even manufacturers is usually not possible. For a colorful print you need a YMCKO or YMCK ribbon as well as a suitable film for the re-transfer printing. For almost all re-transfer printers, there are also several different monochrome ribbons, such as black, gold, silver or white. In addition, some special ribbons for rubbing fields or for creating a signature field are sometimes offered.
 

Cleaning of card printer...

All card printers should be cleaned after about 700 - 1200 prints. Special cleaning cards and cleaning kits are available for this. These are simply plugged into the card slot of your printer and then clean the rollers. The whole procedure takes no longer than 5 minutes, but protects your printer and ensures a consistently good print image.
 

Our recommendation before buying a card printer

Before purchasing a card printer, the exact purpose of your new card printer should be clarified in order to select the best card printer for your needs. We will be happy to advise you by phone or e-mail.

Excellent card printers at the best price

With an inexpensive card printer from us, you can quickly and easily print your plastic cards directly on site in your company or authority, personalise them, print them with images, barcodes or QR codes and of course also apply images of your employees.

Depending on the card printer, you can print your new cards in one colour or colorful. Even plastic cards pre-printed by us especially for you can be easily personalised. Our card printers are not only ideal for quickly printing larger volumes, but also for producing plastic cards individually or in small quantities. Your finished plastic cards are ready for immediate use.

A card printer with WiFi connection is ideal if it is to be accessed from various devices in the private sector and you want a wireless connection. In your company, we recommend connecting it via USB or network. With the network function, several employees can access the card printer from different workstations. This makes sense in case of holiday replacements or illness. The connection option is described separately in the article description of each card printer.

The designation "Duplex" after the printer name means that your card printer can automatically print on both sides of the card and that a flipper module is already installed. A flipper module saves valuable working time and prevents misprints, especially with cards that are to be individualised on both sides.

Choose a card printer that suits your needs or ask us which card printer offers the best solution for you. For smaller companies, the cost of purchase often plays an important role, whereas for larger companies or government agencies, it is more a matter of high print volume at low card prices. Therefore, for smaller print jobs, up to about 5000 prints per year, dye-sublimation printers are usually the better and cheaper choice, while larger businesses should rather buy a re-transfer printer.

A card printer only works with the right consumables. In any case, you need good plastic cards, the appropriate ribbon for your card printer and cleaning materials. We will be happy to help you with this or you can take a look at the completely prepared packages with all accessories under the menu item "Card Printer Packages".

 

Environmental protection

Many manufacturers now produce their card printers sustainably and with recyclable materials. But customers can also do something about this. For example, there are plastic cards that can be rewritten - rewritable cards. After using the card, the text can be deleted and the card can be rewritten. This is a sensible and environmentally friendly solution, especially in the field of visitor management. 

But not all plastic cards are the same. In the meantime, cards are also available that are mainly made of degradable lime or that are produced from recycled plastic. These cards are available for large-volume offset printing as well as for small series in your company.
