It’s very helpful to have a pre-established budget range in mind when evaluating printers, since an organization’s budget can be the most limiting factor. Pricing for complete ID card systems starts at $898 and goes up to $6,165+ based on your organization’s needs.

Also make sure to consider the ongoing supply costs of your card program, which includes blank cards and printer ribbons. Supply costs-per-card range from $.29-.$.54 for single sided color printing, and $.09-$.20 for single sided monochrome printing.

A complete ID card system includes a printer, software, supplies, and lifetime AlphaCare support. These components usually add $200-$1,350 to the base printer price.

Volume determinations can vary depending on company usage, needs, and other factors. See Step 4: Volume Requirements for more information, or contact one of our ID card experts today for help!
