Have Questions about Dual-Sided IDP Printers? We Have Answers!

Should I Choose a Direct-To-Card or Retransfer Dual-Sided IDP Printer?

Direct-to-card and retransfer are the two choices available in card printing technology. Direct-to-card technology is the most common type of card printing, with images being printed directly onto the surface of cards. In retransfer printing, images are printed to a clear film that is then heat-sealed to the surface of cards. Both types of printing create good quality images, but there are some important differences:

  • Direct-to-card printers are sensitive to card imperfections. The effects of this sensitivity include: (1) Card printing that doesn't cover the entire surface of the card. Since your printhead should not come in contact with the edge of cards, a thin white border will be left around the edge of your printed cards. (2) Difficulty printing on technology cards. If you're printing too close to the raised areas of a technology card, such as a contact chip, your printhead is at risk for damage. You may also get inconsistent print quality on technology cards because of the uneven card surface.
  • Retransfer printers are not sensitive to card imperfections. With this technology, the printhead does not come in direct contact with the card, therefore the potential for printhead damage is limited. Images can cover the entire card surface and you can safely print on proximity cards, smart cards, pre-punched cards, key tags, etc.

The IDP line-up includes two direct-to-card printer models: the Smart-30 and the Smart-51. Choose a dual-sided IDP direct-to-card printer if you if you will be printing on both sides of a basic PVC card and don't mind having an unprinted, white edge on cards.

The IDP line-up includes one retransfer printer: the Wise-CXD80. Choose a dual-sided IDP retransfer card printer if you will be printing on both sides of a technology card (smart cards, prox cards, etc.) or if you prefer "over-the-edge" prints.

Should I Consider a Laminating Dual-Sided IDP Card Printer?

If you recall the old days of cutting and pasting an ID card together, lamination may confuse you a bit. You might wonder why you would need lamination when printing directly to plastic. In plastic card printing, lamination is a clear protective layer that is applied over the top of your printed cards by a printer with lamination capability. It offers three primary benefits to a plastic ID card:

  • Lamination extends the life of your card by protecting it from wear, such as being swiped in a magnetic stripe reader.
  • Lamination protects your cards from fading and dye migration when exposed to the sun.
  • Holographic lamination increases the security of your cards by making them difficult to copy.

Choose a dual-sided laminating IDP card printer if your cards will be swiped in a mag stripe reader or will be worn in harsher environments, such as in the sun. Lamination will protect your cards from fading and extend their life--so you'll need to reprint cards less frequently, saving you time and supplies costs!
