Hanging on to your outdated card printer might be costing you way more than you think.
Here are the facts:
Consumables and parts for an outdated printer
can cost you twice as much as supplies for a new machine.
New printers are faster, which means that you will increase productivity and therefore profitability.
The latest printers are more durable to significantly reduce downtime and issue highly secure badges.
The maintenance costs of a discontinued printer are substantial. Changing a printhead will cost you hundreds of dollars if your printer is out of warranty.

At ID Security Online, we value our customers' feedback.
That is why we have decided to share with you the experience of one of our clients who needed to purchase an ID card printer for the first time. In this fourth post, Patricia finds out more about the different ribbons that an ID card printer uses.
“Evidently, ID Card printers don’t use a standard ink cartridge that laser and inkjet printers do. ID Card printers use ribbons, which are plastic cartridges with ink on a film. I assumed a double-sided printer would need two ribbons to operate. Yet again, I was wrong.

At ID Security Online, we value our customers' feedback.
That is why we have decided to share with you the experience of one of our clients who needed to purchase an ID card printer for the first time. The third installment is all about choosing between a single- and a dual-sided ID card printer.

When thinking about what Identification system you need you have to think about your needs and the size of your business. Here, at photo ID Systems we put the systems in three categories to give an idea of what system might be right for you.
Might only need a low capacity system. A restaurant is doing a great job. The food is great and people talk about the place the whole time. It’s on the map and is starting to get real recognition. The restaurant wants to start to launch its Friday spectacular events. The restaurant wants to send VIP cards so the front of desk knows who’s who and where they should go. Additionally the management of the restaurant as well as their families who also need ID passes. These two groups might get two different cards with identifying information. There are four machines that meet the needs for a smaller business.

If you purchased an ID card printer, you might be part of the vast majority who buy “Basic” printers: no encoding, single-sided capabilities, USB only.
printers are perfect to personalize ID badges with names, pictures, logos and
barcodes. But what happens if one day, you are asked to print and encode
magnetic cards or if you need a dual-sided printer to add more information on
the back of your cards? Should you just get another printer?
Here is the thing with card printers today: many machines can easily be upgraded onsite! Let’s say you have a single-sided printer and you want dual-sided capabilities, you can get an upgrade kit and do it yourself in no time! With some card printer manufacturers, this can be done with an activation key or a special upgrade ribbon.

If you want to print color badges, you will need a color ribbon but if you look closer at the options, you will find YMCKO ribbons and Half-panel YMCKO ribbons. What’s the difference?
ribbons are standard color ribbons. YMCKO stands for Yellow, Magenta, Cyan,
Black and Overlay. The printer uses the YMC panels to print in full color, the
Black (K) panel to print in real black and then applies a clear coating overlay
(O) to create durable plastic badges.
Half-panel color ribbons are different: the Yellow, Magenta and Cyan panels are half the size of the regular panels of a YMCKO ribbon. The K (Black) and O (Overlay) are full size panels. This means that up to half of the card can be printed in full color while black text or images can be printed anywhere on the card.
