Which Printer for Instant Card Issuance?


Color sublimation and thermal transfer printers

These printers offer complete personalization of cards on both sides:

  • Sublimation technology lets you print more secure, more exclusive cards that are customized with a photo of the holder, are in color, and have a resolution of 300 dpi.
  • Thanks to thermal transfer technology, you can personalize variable graphic elements in monochrome on your pre-printed cards (card holder name, card number, expiration date, visual cryptogram).
  • You can also personalize the cards electronically (contact or contactless chip and magnetic stripe).

Elypso and Primacy card printers

  • Elypso: Card-by-card personalization for immediate issuance at the counter.
  • Primacy: Automatic and secure loading of cards for more autonomous operation.

Retransfer Printer

This technology enables you to personalize color cards on both sides, with a high-resolution finish that covers the card fully from edge to edge. The printed elements are protected by an additional layer, which guarantees a print durability of up to 3 years.

The Avansia printer provides:

  • A perfect finish in 600 dpi without a white border at the edge of the card
  • Printing on irregular surfaces (near the chip or on the contactless antenna area)
  • Increased flexibility: print new card designs in record time while only holding one stock of blank cards.
  • Customization of the design on request
  • Electrical personalization of cards (contact or contactless chip and magnetic stripe).
