Plastic Card Printing

Plastic cards are prevalent in our daily lives, such as payment cards, driver's licenses, membership cards and employee identification badges. Their standard size, portability and durability make them the ideal choice for many applications. Id card printers let you print customized, secure and cost-effective cards on demand. They can be printed in color or monochrome and can be encoded with multiple features like magnetic stripes or radio frequency identification (RFID) to extend their use from highly secure employee IDs to gift card applications. ID card printers use a special dye sublimation technology which provides you with maximum efficiency for production of plastic cards for commercial and government applications.
