IDP Smart-31 Overview

  • Printing Capability: Single-sided or dual-sided
  • Print Technology: Dye sublimation
  • Print Speed: Full-color, single-sided cards in 23 seconds & monochrome in 5
  • Input/Output Hopper: 80/25 cards

The IDP Smart-31 ID card printer, an upgrade from the Smart-30, is an affordably and efficient printer for quickly producing small to medium batches of cards.

Single or Dual-Sided Printing

The IDP Smart-31 ID card printer is available with single or dual-sided printing, but don't worry if you realize you need dual-sided printing after you've already purchased the printer – dual-sided printing is also available as a field upgrade! This allows you to upgrade the printer later, if you ever change your card design or need to print dual-sided cards more efficiently.

Easy Small Batch Printing

With a 100 card input hopper and 25 card output hopper, printing small batches of cards will be quick and easy with the Smart-31. And if you only need to print a card or two, there's also an option to hand-feed cards.

The Smart-31's print speeds will also help you print batches of cards quickly, producing monochrome cards in five seconds and single-sided full color cards in 23 seconds (a five second improvement over the Smart-30).

Printer Options & Upgrades

The Smart-31 is available with the following upgrades:

  • Dual-sided printing
  • Rewritable printing

Smart-31 Printer Warranty

The IDP Smart-31 ID card printer comes with a three year manufacturer warranty.
