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.
