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.

Patricia Kreamer. Being the office manager of a small company has its benefits,

Why would I need to
laminate my photo ID cards?
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.
