Speedy ID Card Printing

When you need to print ID cards quickly, you can't beat the speed of the DTC4250e. With the ability to print single-sided full color cards in just 16 seconds, or monochrome cards in 6 seconds, and the 100 card input-output hopper for batch printing, your registration office or front desk will never be waiting for cards.

If you need to print multiple types of cards, the DTC4250e is equipped to print on both standard CR-80 cards and CR-79 adhesive backed cards. You can also print on cards of varying thickness, from thin 9 mil business cards to thinker 40 mil technology cards.

Options for Larger Batch Printing

If you need to print large numbers of cards at once, the DTC4250e comes with several options to make that easier. The default input and output card hoppers hold 100 cards each, so you can print 100 cards at a time without needing to reload the printer with more cards. For ease of use, you can also upgrade to a same side card input/output hopper (traditionally the input hopper is on one side, and the output hopper on the other) so all your cards are on the same side.
