Retransfer (reverse transfer) printers—the most advanced card-printing technology available—print reverse card images onto a flexible, transparent film (retransfer film; a thin clear substrate), and then thermally bond (fuse) the film onto the card surface with heat and pressure as a distinct secondary process. These two-steps—called “reverse thermal image transfer”—don’t print directly onto the card surface.
By comparison, traditional dye-sublimation direct-to-card printers use a printhead that prints through a ribbon directly onto the card surface; the printer’s expensive, and often delicate, printhead touches every PVC card directly, triggering increased printhead replacement. Any uneven part of the card surface—including contact with card edges—can cause expensive printhead damage.

When a business invests in an in-house ID card printer, it can be a sizeable investment. The good news is that doing so can yield massive dividends and make security and authorization needs much more streamlined. When a business starts to scale and outgrow the production capability of its current printer, it's not always necessary to write the machine off as a throwaway. Instead, many ID card printers have upgrade modules available to enhance their features, output, and overall capabilities to better serve the business. Just like when you buy a car, it starts as a factory issue with standard features, but you can opt for upgrade or aftermarket parts. The same is true for many ID card printers – opting for an upgrade module instead of a new system is a viable and cost-effective option for many businesses to consider.
