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.

 

Laminating Card Printers

Laminating card printers are a variety of printer capable of producing images and laminating the final product in one unified process, avoiding the need to utilize (or purchase) both a traditional printer and a laminating device or machine.

Two types of overlaminates are typically used in conjunction with laminating card printers: standard overlaminates included in printer model packages, or customized films fitted with a company logo.

  • Protecting vehicle graphics, such as legal information and decals
  • Safety signs
  • Luggage or cargo handlers
  • Library and meal cards
