Technology of Single-Sided Cards

Single-sided printers have a versatility and functionality that makes them appealing to many different kinds of businesses and organizations.  Single-sided printers range from the most basic monochrome printers right on up to printers with more advanced functions and security features such as magnetic stripe encoding, contactless smart card and proximity technology, and lamination. With a range of models and features, single-sided printers are a more budget-friendly option for organizations looking to save money.


Single-sided printers can even be used to print dual-sided cards.  If the information on the back of the ID cards will be the same for every ID card in the program, the backs of the cards can be printed in a large batch.  Later, in a separate pass through the printer, the front of the cards can be customized with personal information for each cardholder such as the cardholder's name, photo, and job title.
