Secure ID solutions use the latest imaging technologies to print directly onto plastic cards for personalization and are the major component of an ID card system. Today’s card printers use a process called dye sublimation which provides outstanding quality and durability, equal or better than that of photo printers.
Additionally, ID card printers can perform other processes at the time of ID card issuance, such as magnetic stripe encoding, reading a proximity card and even writing to the chip on a smart card. Photo ID software typically manages these encoding properties as well as provides the controls for the data that will be printed onto each card.
