Small organizations like non-profits, after-school clubs, or boutique gyms need to print membership cards or employee IDs at an affordable rate. These entry-level ID card printers are designed just for you!

We last shared a round-up of entry-level ID card printers in 2017; since then several new printers have entered the market, and we have updated our list!

Features of Low-volume Card Printers

Entry-level ID card printers are designed for organizations that print one-off cards only or very small batches of cards – because the volume is low, you won’t need the features (and costs) associated with larger volume printers.

The features you’ll find most often in an entry-level printer include:

  • Hand feed slot only for one-off card printing
  • OR very small card hoppers for batch printing 100 cards or less
  • Single-sided printing only (can print dual-sided, but need to manually flip the cards)

As organizations get larger, they often move on to more complicated cards with dual-sided designs, encoding, or lamination.
