Should I Choose A Single-sided SD Series Printer Or A Dual-sided SD Series Printer?

It depends on how much information you need to put on your cards. For example, if you will only be placing the cardholder's photo and name on your cards, the single-sided SD160 or SD260 may be ideal for you. However, if you need to place more information on your cards, we recommend the dual-sided SD360 or SD460 so that you can print to both sides of the card in one, simple process.

Many customers ask if it is possible to print on both sides of the card with a single-sided printer by manually flipping the cards and sending them back through the printer. While technically it is possible, it's not recommended. Printing on both sides of the card with a single-sided printer will expose the printhead to dust, debris, and oil from your fingertips, which can cause expensive printhead damage. Plus, damage to a printhead from non-standard use will void warranty coverage, costing you more in the long run.

If you will be creating ID cards with limited cardholder information, choose the single-sided Entrust Datacard SD160 printer or the Entrust Datacard SD260 printer.

If you will be printing more information on your cards and want the ability to print on both sides of the card, choose the dual-sided Entrust Datacard SD360 printer or the Entrust Datacard SD460 printer.
