ID Badge and Card Printers are not difficult to utilize gadgets, which contrast well and shopper printers in their capacity to be utilized straight out of the case. In any case, as most card printers work uniquely in contrast to ink-stream and laser printers, it merits figuring out a piece about their innovation.

Color Sublimation

Color sublimation or color sub, is the most well-known innovation used.Thermal printing is utilized to put layers of color into the ID identification surface. In color sublimation printing, colors are not set down as individual dabs, which is to be expected in inkjet printers. Color sublimation makes photographs specifically look more sensible.

Inside a color sublimation printer is a roll of straightforward film that looks like sheets of red, blue, yellow, and dark shaded cellophane stayed together start to finish. Implanted in this film are strong colors comparing to the four fundamental varieties utilized in printing: cyan, maroon, yellow and dark. The print head warms up as it disregards the film, making the colors disintegrate and saturate the shiny surface of the card before they return to strong structure. The disintegrated colors penetrate the outer layer of the card, making a delicate degree at the edges of every pixel, rather than the prominent line among color and card delivered by inkjets. Furthermore, on the grounds that the variety mixes the card, it is additionally less defenseless against blurring and mutilation over the long run.

The hued picture is a blend of theĀ types of ion exchange resins Y, M, and C layers which likewise produce a type of dark. The K Resin layer permits extremely sharp characterized dark text, standardized tags and so on to be added. The Overcoat layer goes about as a defensive film against wear and blurring and can likewise convey a solid picture, which can’t be copied – for example the Magicard Holokote security watermark.

Turn around Transfer

With invert move, the printer prints on the opposite of a straightforward PVC re-move film, which is then overlaid onto the ID Cards and Photo Badges []. This shields the picture from dealing with harm and creates a splendid edge-to-edge picture. The quality and sturdiness of the completed card is like that accomplished by an off-set printing process however with the benefit that each card can be unique.

Since the re-move film is overlaid onto the substance of the card, it is feasible to print right to the edge, not at all like color sublimation printers which print nearly to the edge leaving a little (under 0.5mm) white line.


ID identification and card cover includes putting a reasonable layer of PVC over the card surface. Cover is utilized to safeguard the card picture, especially where the card is routinely swiped through an attractive stripe peruser, where overlay will permit 10,000’s of swipes before any noticeable wear of the picture happens.

ID card Lamination is either finished simultaneously as printing (with switch move printers) or independently with a committed laminator. For added security, cover films containing an optical security logo or 3D image are accessible.
