PRO 100 Printer Overview

  • Printing Capability: Single-sided
  • Print Technology: Dye sublimation with AlphaGuard watermark
  • Print Speed: Full color, single-sided cards in 35 seconds, monochrome in 7
  • Input/Output Hopper: Single feed
  • Connection: USB
  • Warranty: 3 years with Pro-Xchange

The AlphaCard PRO 100 ID card printer makes it easy to print professional full-colored cards. Backed by an industry-leading 3 year warranty, all PRO series printers include free lifetime AlphaCare support and a full year of AlphaCarePlus.

Efficient, On-Demand Card Printing

Designed for low volume printing, the PRO 100 uses a hand-fed process that prints 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.

A variety of premium dye-film ribbons are available for the PRO 100 printer to suit the full spectrum of printing needs. For full colored cards, choose a YMCKO ribbon which includes an overcoat panel to seal in the card as an extra layer of protection. Black monochrome ribbons are available with or without an overcoat panel. There are also monochrome ribbons available in a variety of colors and metallic finishes including a specialty ribbon for creating scratch-off panels.

Great for small offices, the PRO 100 features a compact footprint that saves desk space. Featuring a 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.

 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.

Good solid entry printer. Durable cards. Good quality results. I've worked for AlphaCard for a number of years so I've seen plenty of printers, and this is a great option for most customers looking for a starter system.

AlphaCard Pro 100
Once you have the software all set up, the printing is pretty easy. Need to make sure you do not put the ID card in for printing until after you hit the Print Button, and the light on the machine turns from green to yellowish. Otherwise, it errors out. Coloring can sometimes have tiny streaks in them when printed, but nothing tragic.
