Compare the Datacard SD Series & CD810 Printers

If your organization is in the market for a high-performance, high-resolution ID card printer and you’ve decided to move forward with the Datacard brand, you’re in the right place./entrust-datacard-printers.htmlThe Datacard SD Series Printers So many options Choosing a card printer can be a lot to think about if you’re new to ID card printing. Luckily, Datacard carries a full variety of ID card printers to accommodate virtually any printing program – from entry-level models to full-featured, enterprise-level printers with lamination, additional security options, and more. Comparing the features Because an ID card printer is an investment, it’s critical that you choose a model that can provide you with the features you need to make your card program a success. Here are some of the most common features our customers appreciate, including:

  • Warranty coverage - Take the necessary precautions outlined in the printer's warranty to keep your printer running smoothly and efficiently.
  • Loaner coverage - Prevent expensive printing program downtime. If your printer ever stops operating, you'll keep your card program fully operational with loaner printer coverage.
  • Unsurpassed print speeds - Choose between high-resolution 300 x 1200 dpi printing or best-in-class speeds that create up to 165 full-color, dual-sided ID cards or 1,000 monochrome cards an hour.
  • Card volume - For small, on-demand printing, a low-volume printer will most likely be the right choice. For high-volume printing, you'll need a printer and consumable that can manage higher output.
  • Encoding - Securely program cards with confidential personalized data that can be used for more secure ID applications.
  • Advanced security options - To secure the printer's work area, an optional Kensington® cable lock is available.

It’s easy to use price as the primary determining factor for your printer purchase. But in reality, you could be doing yourself – and your company – a disservice.
