What is it?
Plastic card printer - to print individual plastic cards - exactly like your credit card. Used to print; loyalty cards, discount cards, promotional cards, security cards, plastic tags, etc. Ideal for; full colour photographs, full colour text, full colour logos, full colour graphics, full colour fountain fills, barcodes, etc.
There is an inexpensive model that can handle single colour printing (many colours to choose from) - on to white cards, or cards from a rainbow of colours (you can even print silver on black cards).
Exceptionally high quality die-sublimation process that puts the image permanently in the surface of the plastic for the greatest colour range (continuous tone). The cards are water proof, scratch proof, incredibly durable - almost indestructable (use them to scrape ice of your windscreen).
You can even print plastic cards right from; Word, Access, Excel, CorelDraw, Visual Basic, etc. Just think of a plastic card as a small piece of paper - and that's how easy they are to print; set your page to the size of a card, design your card with photos, fixed text, variable text, graphics, logo, symbols, etc. - then simply File | Print.
Most card printers are 300 dpi of continuous tone (every dot is one of millions of colours) so the effect is photo quality - exactly what you want.
Raised printing is done by separate equipment (ask us about it - we also supply that) but is not normally used unless it is for very high value applications or part of very high security.
