ID card makers, also called ID card printers, are specially designed printers that print on plastic cards. ID card makers are available in many styles including single or dual-sided, laminating, or data encoding.

ID Card Maker

An ID card maker, also called an ID card printer, is a specialized printer that produces full color cards on PVC or composite plastic cards. Unlike a traditional desktop inkjet printer, an ID card maker uses ribbons to print which allows you to get colorful, high quality cards that won't smudge.

What Can You Print With an ID Card Maker?

ID card makers can be used to print a variety of cards, making them a smart choice for any business or organization. You can print:

  • Employee ID cards
  • Student and staff ID cards
  • Membership cards
  • Club or team cards
  • Visitor ID cards

Features of ID Card Makers

ID card makers also come in a variety of styles to choose from including single or dual-sided, laminating, or data encoding. Single-sided ID card makers print only on the fronts of cards unless you manually flip the cards, while dual-sided versions will automatically print on both sides.

If your cards need added durability, laminating ID card makers help the cards withstand daily wear and tear. For smart cards that can act as cashless payment systems or access control cards to unlock doors, pick an ID card maker that can encode.
