Your new ID card printer has just arrived. Great! Now let’s make sure you’re using the right cards for it. The most common ID badge makers are thermal printers with direct-to-card printing technology. Much like the name implies, images are printed directly onto the card’s surface. Uneven cards or cards made from the wrong material risk damaging the print head and even ruining your card images.
