Direct-to-card ID card printers (also known as DTC plastic card printers) are an affordable and easy way to print staff, student and visitor ID quickly and easily. Models range from entry-level handfed printers that are designed to print on an adhoc basis through to more advanced machines with hoppers. These are best for those needing to print high volumes of cards in a short amount of time.
Direct-to-card printers use a printer ribbon and printhead to transfer designs directly onto ID cards. The IDP Smart 31 is a popular direct-to-card printer thanks to its enticing price point and class-leading warranty. For more info on exactly how direct-to-card printers work, our direct-to-card printers guide will give you the full lowdown.
Direct-to-card printers are available with additional modules that allow you to print on to both sides of the card, laminate your cards and even encode HID and MIFARE products. However, if you plan to print onto these access control cards you will need a retransfer printer instead. If you’d like to see our full range of ID card printers or need assistance, our team are happy to help.
