IDP, Datacard, Evolis, these are some of the top brands in id card printers. Not only are there different printers with each brand but, each with lots of options. You cannot simply buy those printers and start printing though, you will need cards, ribbons, software, and supplies.
That’s where printer “systems” come into play. Like the Smart 50S Single-Sided Id Printer System or our Datacard Easy 1-2-3 Printer System. The printer comes with everything to get printing the day it arrives.
Printer “systems” are solid choices for businesses which have the requirements to print in-house, but don’t already have an id printing program in place.
Most companies will not ask you if you need printer ribbon, cards, software to go with your id printer. They will assume your are just replacing an existing printer. So make sure you are shopping for a complete id printer “System” that will include everything you need to start printing id badges the day you get your system.
