More on Dual-Sided Printers

Dual-sided, or duplex, ID card printers are able to print on one or both sides of a card. Duplex card printers print full color images, text and barcodes and allow for many options to expand the capabilities of your cards, including magnetic stripe encoding and smart card personalization.

Direct to card printers use a printing technology that prints directly to PVC cards, reverse transfer card printers print the underside of retransfer film that is applied to the card surface using high levels of heat. Many dual-sided direct to card and reverse transfer card printers have the ability to also laminate cards during the printing process. Laminate is applied to one or both sides of your cards, making them more durable. Standard or custom holographic laminates also help secure your cards from being replicated or tampered with.
