Authentys PRO RT1 Retransfer Card Printer


The Authentys PRO RT1 is regarded as the most reliable retransfer printer in the world.  

Retransfer printers such as the RT1 first print the card design onto a transparent film, which is then bound to the card using a combination of heat and pressure. This unique printing technology creates a superior print quality that is less susceptible to wear and tear. Cards printed using a retransfer printer are three times more durable than those printed with a standard direct-to-card printer.  

“Renowned as the world's most reliable retransfer printer.”
“Complete design flexibility”
“Remove the headache of purchasing a second printer”

Key Printer Features

Superior Print Quality

The RT1 is the machine to bring your designs to life. Where corporate image and first impressions are essential, the RT1 offers superior print quality. Utilising 300dpi technology, the RT1 leaves no white borders visible with each card displaying vibrant colours, sharp images, and full over the edge coverage. The result is visually appealing, professional-looking cards that leave a positive impression on employees, visitors, and contractors. 

Consistency Redefined 

Experience print after print of exceptional quality, maintaining the same level of detail and brilliance.  

Whether you're printing one card or a large print run, rest assured that each card is a testament to the printers unwavering commitment to perfection as nothing speaks louder than the end result. 

Design Flexibility 

Say hello to unparalleled flexibility as the RT1 effortlessly accommodates a wide range of ID card designs. From intricate graphics and high-resolution images to vibrant colour schemes, this printer ensures that your vision is accurately translated onto each card with precision. Rest assured that any changes in card design, branding or security features can be taken care of at ease without the need for a new printer. 

Longer Lasting Cards 

Cards printed on a retransfer printer have a longer lifespan due to their resistance to wear, fading, and scratching. This additional longevity is beneficial for those looking to reduce both the cost and time involved in reprints. 

Reducing Waste 

Reducing waste is high on the agenda of every organisation. Due to the machine’s reliability, misprints are dramatically reduced resulting in the removal of unexpected costs of purchasing additional consumables and manual hours wasted with unnecessary reprints. 

Card Compatibility 

Using multiple card materials? No problem. The RT1 adapts to all card materials including PVC, composite PVC, PET, ABS, PC and even those with irregularities or raised surfaces such as access control cards. This versatility is valuable for organisations who may need to switch between multiple card designs or card types. 


The Authentys RT1 helps you stay compliant with GDPR regulations and ensures sensitive card data isn’t breached through its ribbon erase technology. This feature prevents leakage of personal information on the monochrome black panel ink ribbon as the data becomes scrambled beyond recognition, keeping it protected from falling into the wrong hands. 

Removing Technology Debt  

Technology debt refers to the costs involved in purchasing, repairing, or maintaining the wrong product over a set period. Stay ahead of the curve by investing in a printer that grows with you.  

The Authentys Pro RT1 is a seamless, adaptable, and cost-effective printer that evolves, the minute your card printing requirements change. 

Operating Compatibility 

The RT1 printer comes with USB and Ethernet connectivity as standard. The printer is compatible for use with Microsoft® Windows® 7, 8, 10, 11 32/64bit, Windows Server 2008 R2 (SP1) 64bit and Windows XP Server 2012 64bit. 

User-Friendly Maintenance 

With no clunky user guide, this printer comes with a user-friendly interface making it easy for card administrators or supporting staff to replace consumables and conduct routine upkeep such as printer cleaning cycles. The overall result is minimal disruption, ensuring a smooth and continuous card production process. 

Faster Print Speeds 

The RT1 takes just 30 seconds to print a single-sided card (using a YMCK ribbon) allowing you to print up to 120 cards per hour.  

Manufacturer’s Warranty 

The printer comes with a three-year warranty and a lifetime printhead warranty.
