Okay, so you’re getting ready to buy an ID card printer, but you haven’t really thought much about what your ID card needs actually are, right? In fact, you don’t really even know where to begin. Don’t worry, you’re in good company. One thing we know for sure is that identifying your ID-card needs carefully and clearly really helps you make the right ID-card printer decision.
Today’s ID cards can be really basic (a photo and a couple of lines of information on one side) or quite sophisticated with data-storage and security features. Different ID-card printer models are designed for different needs, card volumes, applications and circumstances.
If your organization finally needs its own ID card printer, don’t wait around for someone else to tell you which ID Card Printer is the greatest. You may be in for a long wait – at least when it comes to what’s great for your particular card-printing requirements. Don’t worry though, you can do this on your own without much effort.
Truth is, there isn’t an ID card printer that’s perfect for everyone, and ID-card printer sales pitches can miss the mark– or be confusing – in some material respect, unless you well understand your card-related needs before you start shopping. Fortunately, there are enough ID card printers available that the right one is there to meet your organization’s specific requirements. You just need to know what you’re looking for.

We are proud to announce that we have partnered with GreenChip Electronic Waste Solutions, an industry leader in sustainable and responsible electronics recycling, to recycle ID Card Printers and help divert electronic waste from landfills.

ID card software is the core component of your ID card program — it’s the engine that allows you to design your cards, customize elements, store and reuse or access cardholder data, and print personalized badges. It governs your flexibility and the system’s utility.
If you want to make the most of your ID Card/Badge system, selecting the right software is critical. You need to first understand available software choices and their features and functions. Second, carefully evaluate your organization’s ID needs. Then you can wisely select the software that allows you to meet those needs.
Choosing the right ribbon for your card printer can help you save a lot and increase your card production rate significantly. This is particularly true if you are printing your cards in color.
Most card printer users purchase a standard YMCKO color ribbon to print their ID cards and badges and it does make sense for full color single-sided badges. However, if your card application requires color on the front and black on the back, a YMCKO-K ribbon is a lot more cost-efficient. This ribbon is specifically designed for dual-sided card printers and includes an extra Black panel that is used to personalize the back of your cards. A typical application is an organization looking into printing employee badges with a photo ID, text, logo and background on the front and the company’s contact information in black on the back.

Proximity cards are increasingly popular, and are today’s door-access standard, because they permit users to conveniently (and more quickly) gain entry by simply waving cards in front of a point-of-entry reader. No physical swipe or magnetic strip is necessary. Today these ID cards are offered in open or proprietary formats, and offer varying levels of security, programmed with facility codes and a unique card (user) serial number.
Proximity cards are read-only devices that have an embedded antenna. The cardholder data can be read when the proximity card is passed within range of a reader.
Direct-to-card printing (sometimes shortened to just DTC) is by far the most common printing technique used today. As the name implies, printers that utilize DTC technology print images by having the printhead in direct contact with the surface of a blank card. DTC printers use ribbons with different panels.
