Benefits of Pigment Ink

Unlike other ID card printers, the CR805 card printer uses pigment ink ribbons. Pigment ink creates more vibrant colors, and when combined with the higher resolution 600 dpi reverse transfer printing technology helps you print high-quality, professional ID cards. Pigment ink is also more resistant to UV damage, so your cards will last longer with less fading.

The CR805 card printer still uses ribbons, but there are a slightly different format from a standard dye sublimation ribbon. Pigment ink ribbons are CMYKP - Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black, and a Primer panel. For dual-sided printing, select a CMYKPKP ribbon.

High-Qualtiy Reverse Transfer Printing

The CR805 card printer is a 600 dpi reverse transfer printing, meaning you can print high-quality and long-lasting cards.

Cards produced by reverse transfer printing are more durable than standard cards because the printing process adds an extra layer of protection - the design is first printed onto a clear film, and then transferred to the card. Because this film is larger than a CR80 card, this allows for true over-the-edge printing. This also makes the cards more secure and tamper-resistant.

And for printing on uneven card surfaces, such as smart cards with embedded chips, a reverse transfer printer is your recommended option to prevent damage to the printhead.

Protect Your Cards with Lamination

The CR805 card printer has options for single-sided and dual-sided lamination. An essential feature for making long-lasting cards, lamination works by applying a protective film (either clear or with a watermark-style holographic designs) over the top of your printed card.

This extra layer of film gives you several benefits – UV-blocking thick lamination film will protect your card design from fading quickly in sunlight; lamination will protect your card from day-to-day use, such as swiping cards in magnetic stripe readers, that may otherwise damage the card; and lamination makes it harder to tamper with a card.

Tactile Impression for Visual & Physical Card SecurityDatacard's unique patent-pending tactile impression creates card security you can see and feel. Using a tactile impression die, a design is physically impressed into your card. This makes it even hard to duplicate or tamper with the card – the impression is made over the lamination, so it will tear if someone tries to remove the lamination film.

When choosing tactile impression, you'll need to select which die pattern you want. You can also design a custom tactile impression die; contact our sales team to learn more. Pre-set designs include:

  • Pillars
  • Globe
  • Bank
  • Secure Lock
  • Secure Globe
  • Government
  • Healthcare
  • Security English
  • Seguridad Spanish
  • Digital Thumbprint

Please note that you should never use the tactile impression over a magnetic stripe, or smart card chip/antenna.

Choose from Three Color Printing Settings

To customize the CR805 card printer for your specific ID card needs, you can choose from three different color print modes:

  • True Color (ICC) - prints as close as possible to the colors in the image file
  • Legacy SR/CR - close as possible match to the SR200, SR300, and SR300e card printers
  • Vivid - prints colors with higher saturation and contrast

Please note that True Color is the default print mode.
