Why a Photo ID Printer?

There are a number of reasons to start an ID card program.  Adding an ID card printer to any company or organization can add versatility and security.  With a wide range of features, sizes, styles, and prices, photo ID printers come in enough varieties to suit any application.  Not only do ID cards increase efficiency, but they can also help expand the functionality of a program.

Different Photo ID Printers for Different Needs

Because of the wide variety of features available on most ID printers, they can range anywhere from entry-level, single-sided, monochrome printers right on up to more advanced dual-sided, full color printers.  The more advanced models are equipped with technologies including magnetic stripe encoding, smart card encoding, RFID technology, lamination, and holographic overlaminates. 

The type of ID card printer a business chooses depends on many different factors such as how many members there will be in the ID card program, what kind of functions the ID cards will need to perform, and how many ID cards will be printed per year.  AlphaCard has years of industry experience to help determine the right photo ID printer for a wide variety of applications.
