A dye sublimation printer actually heats a solid directly into a gaseous state, bypassing the liquid state. Both the dye and the PVC card are heated, and the gaseous dye penetrates the plastic. When the card cools, the dye has been chemically bonded with the plastic card.
To achieve photo-quality pictures on an ID card, the secret is in the size and density of each color dot. The ribbon in a dye sublimation printer consists of cyan dye, yellow dye, and magenta dye, and each color diffuses into the card depending on the amount of heat applied by the printhead.

All proximity cards use similar technology to create the functionality that you need for access control. This includes an antenna connected to an electronic chip that contains all of the cardÙs information. Both the antenna and the chip are embedded into the proximity card at the time of manufacture.
