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 questions 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? Have a look at our Printer Buying Guide so that you can make the right decision first time round.

What do you want from a ID card printer?

With such a vast range of ID Card 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.

Volume

What volume of cards are you looking to print and over what period of time?  Some printers are designed for high volumes over a prolonged period of time, 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 issuing cards on demand such an events and reception areas. 

Security

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

Price

The variance in price across the card printer portfolio is generally guided by the features of each printer, 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 encoder the cards?  You’ll need an encoder!
  • Think you might want to upgrade in the future?  Go for a printer that has modules you can add at a later date giving you the ability 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. Afterall a good investment is one that stands the test of time.

To assist you further on evaluating which printer may best suit your needs, we have created a Printer Buying Guide.
