New Eco-Friendly ribbons on select Zebra printers

The new eco-friendly ribbons are biodegradable and all plastic components (ribbon cartridges, ribbon roll holders) are recyclable. The new ribbon cartridge has also been designed to use less plastic, which translates into less waste and a lower environmental impact.

These eco-friendly ribbons are easy to handle thanks to convenient tabs to hold the cartridge. The open design uses less plastic and exposes the ribbon rolls, making it simpler to identify the ribbon type and repair the ribbon if it breaks.

Pre-Printed Cards

Are you looking to send a holiday greeting to a friend or a loved one? Is your wedding anniversary around the corner? Do you know anyone who is not well and could use some cheering up? Or are you looking to wish someone a happy birthday? Pre-printed cards provide a quick way to share holiday greetings or birthday wishes, but sometimes the message the card comes with isn't enough. When this is the case, you can deliver your own greeting with the aid of a PC printer and a graphic or word processor program. Printing on the inside of greeting cards requires the same printing process as that used on any heavy card stock. Once you've designed your greeting, simply set the printing parameters and print away, customizing your pre-printed greeting cards to your liking.


Establish a Gift Card Program with ID Security Online

Gift cards are increasingly popular, especially around holiday season. From fashion boutiques, supermarkets, Home Depot, Macyís to hair salons, gift and loyalty cards are offered in many businesses. Most retailers and chain stores have been using and heavily promoting them for the past few years. In fact, the largest selling single item for over 80% of the top 100 retailers in the United States is their gift card. Gift cards are seen to be mutually beneficial to both customers and retailers. The notion of products being offered at a certain discount when using a gift card gives shoppers the incentive to provide their business to the store owner. That is if the customers are satisfied with their purchases. It is practically a win-win situation. Now is the time for you, the small to medium sized retailer and independently owned restaurateur to grasp the opportunity and start your own program. It will look and work exactly like the big guys program, except yours will be designed with a price that you can surely afford.

Single and Dual sided ID Cards Printers

Difference between a single-sided  ID card printer and a dual-sided ID card printer?

A double sided printer will print on both sides of the  ID card whereas a single sided printer will only print on one side of the  ID card. A single sided printer is necessary for creating ID cards with limited cardholder information. It has a full color and monochrome printing capability. It offers magnetic stripe and smart card encoding options. You can choose direct-to-card or a stunning reverse transfer print technology. Printing ID cards from a single sided printer can be time consuming. Most card printer manufactures discourage the use of a single sided printer primarily that this printer tends to damage the sensitive print heads in the print cards.

 

Laminate Photo ID Cards

Why would I need to laminate my photo ID cards?

Firstly, what is a laminated card? A laminated card is a full color plastic card with Matt or Gloss lamination. Matt lamination is a thin coating on a card used to smooth out the printings on the card. This coating provides a soft and silky satin sheen high quality finish resulting in a more sophisticated card. It also allows the card to be more water resistant. It also extends the durability of your card. Gloss lamination forms a protective coating over the print which makes it suitable for items such as menus, cards, brochures etc. Gloss lamination also gives your card a more professional look. These type of plastic cards are used for  advertising a business, product, or a service. Lamination serves as a protection for your card. This process is beneficial to the cardholder that it prevents the fading and dye migration via sun exposure on your card. That way, you  won't have to reprint your card frequently thus saving you supply costs and time. Holographic lamination increases the security of your cards therefore preventing identity theft or unauthorized duplication of your card. How are laminated cards produced? Multiple cards must be printed on a large sheet. Then they are fed through a laminating unit which provides a thin sheet of laminate either on both or one side of the card. This procedure traps the card in between. Heat is then applied to seal the lamination.
