New and Improved Datacard Printer Options

Datacard Group is a quality manufacturer of ID card printer systems. The company is headquartered in Minnetonka, Minnesota, but has a worldwide client base in over 120 countries. The company, with over 1400 employees, provides cutting edge printers available for small business to large government projects that require the highest level of security possible.

Recently, the company has been developing additional retransfer card printers to their quality line of Datacard printer models. These affordable retransfer printers deliver exceptional quality for businesses and organizations that are cost-conscious.

The newest printers are the Datacard SR200 and SR300 retransfer card printers. These printers provide full-color, over-the-edge printing on either a printed single side card or a dual side printed card. The printers have the option of a laminator to further enhance and secure the printed card.

What is a retransfer printer? These printers are changing the dynamic of the current common direct to card ID card printer. The retransfer printer ensures superior card results by transferring an image from the print ribbon onto the transfer film. This film is permanently adhered to the card by high heat intensity. This type of printing is more costly than a direct to card print, but the results allow for a clearer image and for printing over the edge of the card. Direct to card printers provide to the edge. This means that a small white line may occur at the edge of the printed card as the printing stops before reaching the card edge.

These printers have a simple, compact design and the technology is affordable for a wide range of applications. The printers process the cards using landscape orientation to minimize unwanted dye transfer.

The SR200 printer is geared for organizations that require a single side card print. The SR300 printer is a dual sided printer. Smart card chips and magnetic strips can also be encoded on the cards with available options. The optional laminator can apply topcoats and laminates to increase card durability and to increase the security options of the card. The printers also contain electric locks to provide increased security to the card printing system.

Additional features not available on direct to card printers include the security erase feature that blocks out black text on used ribbons. This protects the information previously printed on former cards. Because these printers print on retransfer material, an additional benefit of these printers is that the cards do not have to be a minimum of an image grade PVC card. A wide variety of cards can be printed with these printers, including synthetic resin.

With over 40 years of cutting edge innovation with ID card printer manufacturing, the Datacard Group provides a large portfolio of printer solutions. The company provides expert service and support for small business, financial, government and other markets around the globe. The company believes they are the industry’s leading brand of secure card personalization options.
