How To

Printing

ID card printers are designed to print everything from simple identification cards right on up to advanced, multifunctional security badges.  With such a wide range of options, it's easy to find an ID card printer that perfectly meets the style and needs of any business or organization.


Although ID card printers can vary in terms of the features they offer, they all generally function in the same way.  Cards are inserted into the printer, either by hand or through the use of a card hopper, which streamlines the printing process and requires less hands-on involvement.  Cards then pass through the printer where images, graphics, and text are added to the card.


While simple ID card printers might stop the process there, more sophisticated ID machines continue the printing process adding features such as magnetic stripe encoding, contactless or smart card encoding, and lamination.  These features add functionality and security to ID card programs.
