Key Printer Features

Print Quality

The Javelin DNA Pro has an outstanding 300dpi print resolution and tailors its printing style to yield the highest quality results possible. It uses thermal transfer to produce sharp, clear monochrome prints and dye-sublimation technique for vivid and vibrant full-colour images.


Javelin assure their printer’s quality by providing a 30-month manufacturer’s warranty. Alongside this, they also have a dedicated technical support team which are on-hand by both phone and email to assist with any issues.

Ease of Use

The DNA Pro is designed to be completely understandable and user-friendly with an easy to read 4-line LCD display for clear notifications and intuitive control buttons to ensure no confusion.

There is also an easy to change ribbon and thermal print head to allow you to continually print with minimal interference.

Ease of Setup

Javelin have made set-up simple and quick with the DNA Pro printer. The set-up guide will ensure you have your printer working in a matter of minutes.


The additional upgrade of security locks ensures the hoppers can be securely locked to stop printed cards being stolen, and it also includes a lock to fasten the printer to a desk to reduce printer theft.


Upgrade options for the DNA Pro include dual-sided printing, contact & contactless smart card encoding, 3-track magnetic stripe encoding including both Hi-Co and Lo-Co, and internal USB hub.

Card Type

The Javelin DNA Pro prints to standard CR80 credit card sized cards from a range of materials including PVC and composite PVC.


The DNA Pro is designed to conveniently fit on a desk with its exact dimensions being 36.6cm (L) x 18.4cm (W) x 22.8cm (H) and weighs 4.5kgs.


The clean white colour of the DNA Pro ensures it fits perfectly in any office environment while the accents of blue add understated vibrancy without taking away from the discreet, compact design.

Printer Type

The Javelin DNA Pro printer is a direct-to-card (DTC) model. DTC printing means the card design is taken from the ribbon and then printed directly onto the surface of the card to give it a glossy, professional finish.

Print Speed

In just one hour, the DNA Pro can produce up to 200 full-colour, single-sided cards, and a massive 800 single-sided, monochrome cards.


The Javelin DNA Pro comes with an interface for high-speed USB and is built with 10/100 ethernet as standard. As well as this, unlike most printers, this DTC printer also has the option to add Wi-Fi connectivity.

Operating Systems

The DNA Pro is compatible with Microsoft Windows XP, Server 2003/2008, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 & 10.

Expert Verdict

We want to award this printer 4.5 stars out of 5.

The only downside to the Javelin DNA Pro is the lack of printing security features such as UV laminates or hologram film. But the plus points include the ability to print large volumes of high-quality cards. It is the perfect, compact printing package with many encoding options, allowing you to personalise the printer to your needs.
