An affordable starter bundle, the AlphaCard PRO 100 ID Card System makes it easy to design and print professional cards. Combined with basic ID software and premium supplies, this complete system includes everything you need to print your first 100 cards.

Need help getting started? All AlphaCard PRO series printers include training and set up assistance, lifetime AlphaCare support and a full year of AlphaCarePlus.

AlphaCard PRO 100 ID Card Printer

Designed for low volume printing, the PRO 100 uses a hand-fed process that prints professional quality cards on-demand. Simply insert each card into the front of the printer; within seconds the printed card will be returned through the same slot. For dual-sided card designs, just flip each card over and run it through a second time.

Great for small offices, the PRO 100 features a compact footprint that saves desk space. Equipped with an LED status screen and a Microsoft-certified plug-and-play driver, you'll be surprised at how intuitive it is to set up and start printing cards.

AlphaCard PRO 100 Key Features
  • Printing Capability: Single-sided
  • Print Technology: Dye sublimation with AlphaGuard watermark
  • Print Speed: Full color cards in 35 seconds, monochrome in 7
  • Input/Output Hopper: Single feed
  • Connection: USB
  • Warranty: 3 years with Pro-Xchange
Flexible & Efficient Card Printing

The PRO 100 printer uses dye-film ribbons which are available in a variety of options, giving you flexibility. Included with this system is a full color 100-print YMCKO ribbon which contains an overcoat panel to seal in each card as an extra layer of protection. PRO series black monochrome ribbons are available with or without an overcoat panel. There are also monochrome ribbons available in a variety of colors including metallic finishes and a specialty ribbon for creating scratch-off panels.

AlphaGuard Watermark Technology

The built-in AlphaGuard technology allows you to add a hologram-like watermark over your printed card without any additional supplies. The watermark can be seen when light is reflected off the card and won't interfere with your printed card design. This added layer of visual security makes cards harder to tamper with or duplicate.

Choose from four secure designs that are repeated 24 times in a 4x6 grid over the face of the card.  Easily turn the AlphaGuard watermark on and off or to hide sections of the grid with the intuitive printer driver. Learn More about AlphaGuard.
