What's the Difference Between a Single-Sided and a Dual-Sided Fargo Card Printer?

Simply put, single-sided printer prints on one side of your cards, and a dual-sided printer prints on both sides of your cards in one process.

Choose a single-sided printer if you will be creating ID cards with limited cardholder information.

Choose a dual-sided printer if you want the front of your cards to remain clean and uncluttered; printing some of your card-holder info on the back of your cards will keep the front of your cards looking their best!


Why Would I Need to Laminate My Plastic Cards?

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. Primarily this is used to extend the life of your cards (the additional layer adds protection from physical wear, rubbing, etc as well as fading from the sun) and to increase security. The additional layer makes it more difficult to tamper with cards, and when coupled with holographic laminates, makes cards almost impossible to duplicate.

What is a Retransfer Printer?

Many experienced card printer users are familiar with the white border that direct-to-card printers leave around the edge of cards. Retransfer printers, on the other hand, produce "over-the-edge" prints that cover the entire surface of your cards.

Direct-to-card printers print directly to the surface of cards. Any uneven surface of a card--including coming in contact with the edge of a card--can cause expensive printhead damage.

Retransfer printers, like the IDP Wise-CXD80, print your card image to a clear retransfer film that is then fused onto the surface of the card. With this process, the printhead does not come in direct contact with your card, allowing you to print over the edge of your cards and to a wider variety of card surfaces including proximity cards, smart cards, pre-punched cards and key tag cards. Another benefit: retransfer printers produce imagery with rich, vibrant, saturated colors.
