Have Questions about Dual-Sided ID Systems? We Have Answers!

Why Choose an ID system?

Dual-sided ID systems provide everything that is needed to quickly and easily get a card printing program up and running. While a dual-sided ID card printer can be purchased as a stand-alone piece of equipment, it does not come with all of the necessary supplies to begin making cards. It's very important, especially for first-time card printer users, to also get the supplies necessary for card production.

Our bundled ID systems contain supplies and equipment that seamlessly work together. Most systems include a printer, software, ribbon, camera, and cards. Plus, each system can easily be customized to varying needs. For example, you can change the type of card, add printer features (such as encoding, lamination, etc.), upgrade to a more advanced ID camera or ID software, and add extended warranty and/or loaner coverage.

Not only can a system make your purchase decision easier, it is also easy on the pocketbook. Buying a bundled ID system costs less than if the items were purchased individually!

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

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, also known as reverse transfer, 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 Dual-sided ID systems 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 Dual-sided ID systems 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.

What is Rewritable Technology?

Rewritable Dual-sided ID systems are a cost-effective and environmentally-friendly card printing solution when the data printed on cards needs to be updated frequently, such as visitor ID cards.

Rewrite printing doesn't require a ribbon, but does require the use of special rewritable cards. In rewrite printing, heat is used to ‘print' information onto the heat-sensitive material contained in rewritable cards. This technology allows you to erase and reprint cards hundreds of times! Rewritable cards may be printed with a permanent full-color image on one part of the card, and the rewritable portion on the other. The rewritable portion of cards is generally offered with blue or black one-color printing.

Choose a dual-sided ID system with rewrite capability if the data on your cards will be shared by many people or the data printed on them needs to be updated frequently.

Should I consider a laminating Dual-Sided Card System?

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 ID system 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.
