Get the right ID card printer for the right job.  

Once you’ve decided to go ahead with an ID card system in your business or organisation, the next big question is, ‘which is the right card printer for us?’ The printer is the most important component in any ID card system, so think carefully about your choice – and get some expert advice.

Not sure which ID card printer best fits your needs? Look at our Printer Buying Guide so that you can make the right decision the first time.

What do you want from an ID card printer?

With such a vast range of ID Card/Badge Printers on the market, working out which printer will best suit you and your organisation can be confusing. Identifying which key features of an ID Card Printer are essential to your needs will assist you in making the correct decision when printing your own ID cards. 


What volume of cards are you looking to print, and over what period of time? Some printers are designed to produce a large quantity of ID Cards on demand over a prolonged period of time, whereas others are better for short, frequent print runs.

Print speed

To be considered in conjunction with your required print volume to determine the overall time required for each print job. Fast print speed is often high on the list of requirements for anyone printing ID cards on demand, such as events and reception areas. 


If security is high on your agenda, you will need to ensure the card printer you choose can provide a range of security features such as a secure overlay or encoding to prevent your ID cards and ID badges being cloned.


The features of each printer generally guide the variance in price across the card printer portfolio, so if you’ve worked out what is and isn’t important and essential to your operation, you can then make the best purchasing decision for your business.

Consider whether features that may cost a premium are essential to you, such as:

  • Dual-sided printing – could you use a single-sided printer and manually flip the card instead?
  • Enhanced print quality – if you’re only printing monochrome text, you may not need a printer that prints at 600dpi.
  • Do you want full edge-to-edge (over-edge) print?  Then you’ll need a retransfer printer.
  • Do you need to encode the cards?  You’ll need an encoder!
  • Think you might want to upgrade in the future?  Go for a printer with modules you can add later, allowing you to upgrade your machine to a dual-sided printer or add a laminator or encoder.


Each feature contributes to the overall price. However, some careful planning and consideration from the outset will ensure you choose a printer that suits your needs now and in the future. After all, a good investment stands the test of time.

To further evaluate which printer may best suit your needs, we have created a Printer Buying Guide.


If you don’t want the outlay of owning an ID card printer, then renting is also an option.

Direct-to-card ID card printers work by printing directly onto a plastic ID card using an ink ribbon. They are ideal for businesses with low to medium volume requirements, who are looking to print simple ID card designs.

Direct-to-card printers (also known as dye sublimation printers) are a budget-friendly option, with certain models offering a range of optional upgrades for dual-sided printing and encoding.

Retransfer ID card printers offer a more effective printer method. Instead of printing the design directly onto the ID card’s surface, the ink is deposited onto a retransfer film, which is then fused directly onto the card using heat.

This print process makes cards more durable but also means that designs can be printed edge-to-edge, with no white gap. This is ideal for all types of cards, including cards with an uneven finish, such as access control cards.

Despite being commonplace for desktop printers, inkjet technology is relatively new for ID card printing. The Fargo INK1000 now provides a cost-effective means to print PVC cards using inkjet technology.

The benefits of inkjet printers include easy-to-install cartridges as well as edge-to-edge printing, perfect for full card designs.

ID card printers are compatible with Windows as standard, but there are some models that are also compatible with Mac iOS and Linux systems. To view compatible printers, please use the ‘Printer Features’ filter on the left sidebar.

We offer a range of plain PVC and other material cards that are suitable for use with ID card printers.

All our cards are available in a range of sizes, from standard credit card sized (CR80), to 3UP keytags and even larger. We also offer different materials, including paper and recycled PVC.

If you require access control cards for your printed ID, we stock magstripe and contactless cards.

All stock items are dispatched same day if the order is placed before 3pm (weekdays only).

Choosing an ID card printer depends on your requirements as well as your budget. We offer printers suitable for a range of budgets, all with optional upgrades for encoding and single or dual sided printing.

If you would like more information on which ID card printer is best for you, please get in touch with a member of our expert team by calling us on 01604 422422 or by emailing [email protected].
