Rewritable ID cards, for use with rewritable ID card printers, are special cards designed to be printed, erased, and reprinted up to 500 times per card.

The cards are made from special temperature sensitive materials that respond to the heat of the printer. Rewritable cards are only able to print in monochrome blue or black, and also come in magnetic stripe form.


Because you do not use a printer ribbon and the cards reusable they are an option for ID card programs on a budget, or card programs trying to be more environmentally friendly. This also makes them ideal for short-term visitor ID cards, because they can be reused for multiple visitors throughout the day.
