Direct-to-card printing process transfers images directly onto the card being personalized by heating a built-in ink ribbon and pressing it straight onto the smooth card’s surface. A YMCKO color ribbon is used to make photographic quality ID cards. The printer uses the YMC panels to print the color images or characters, while the K panel is used to print deep black characters or images such as barcodes that have to remain machine-readable despite regular use. The O panel is an overlay that serves as a coating for your card. Single-color/ monochrome ribbons help create crisp monochrome images and are used mainly to personalize pre-printed cards.
This simple single-step dye sublimation process stands in contrast to reverse transfer printing technology, where ink is applied to a clear film first and then to the card itself. While both methods have their advantages, direct-to-card printers can generally warrant a higher output per hour and lower production costs. With the MC210, this translates to up to 180 cards per hour when printing color single side and up to 1000 cards per hour when printing in monochrome.
