AlphaCard PRO 100 ID Card Printer

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.

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, single-sided cards in 35 seconds, monochrome in 7
  • Input/Output Hopper: Single feed
  • Warranty: 3 years with 1-year free TrueSupport
AlphaGuard Hologram Security

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 AlphaGuard on and off or to hide sections of the grid with the intuitive printer driver. Learn More about AlphaGuard.

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. Cooloring can sometimes have tiny streaks in them when printed, but nothing tragic.
