    How to choose an ID card printer?

    An ID card machine is a plastic card printer with a single card feeder that can personalise pvc cards. In order to make the best choice, assess your needs with 3 criteria : how you want the ID cards to look, how many you need to print and whether you want to add security features.

    Have a look at our guide below or simply call our UK-based experts for more information on how to find the right plastic card printer for your business.

    Think about your design and the information you want to print on it. If you simply want to print a logo, your employee’s picture, name and job title, you can choose our compact single-sided plastic printer that offers high printing quality. However, if you want to print additional details such as an address, a safety & health message or what to do when a lost card has been found, you should consider buying our economy dual-sided pvc printer (standard printing quality) or our premium dual-sided ID printer (high printing quality). They automatically flip and print onto the back side of the card.

    If you plan to print less than 1,000 ID cards per year, choose our economy ID badge printer (standard quality). However, if you plan to print more than 1,000 ID cards per year, we recommend that you choose a more robust printer like our compact ID printer or our premium card maker machine.

    Security features help prevent counterfeiting attempts and keep your data and assets secure. Our economy id card printing machine has a built-in IdentiKote security feature that prints a secure watermark on the card’s surface. We offer 4 standard designs and the option of customising this watermark to your organisation’s unique logo, tiled or stretched across the card. Our premium photo ID card printer can support both UV printing and holographic design with an optional hot roller unit. UV printing consists in printing a design in a clear ink which is invisible in daylight, but clearly visible when a specific device with UV light is used. The holographic design is included in a protective overlaminate. Additionally, we can supply cards with holo foils for extra security and RFID chips for access control.
