    The DTC4000 single-sided printer produces ID cards using dye-sublimation printing for vivid color and accurate images and thermal transfer printing for sharp black text and readable barcodes. It has the industry's first inline card printing and technology card encoding with one connection using the standard USB connection or optional Ethernet connectivity. Plus, the DTC4000 single-sided printer can print on 9 mil to 40 mil thick cards, allowing it to easily accommodate sophisticated access control badges and smart cards.
