About the retransfer printing technology

Unlike traditional dye sublimation card printers, which use a printhead that prints through a ribbon directly onto the card, retransfer printers print onto a flexible, transparent film that is then thermally bonded to the card. In general, benefits of retransfer printing include:

  • Higher image quality and print resolution
  • The ability to print on uneven card surfaces such as smart cards
  • True edge-to-edge printing (via over-the-edge printing). Traditional card printers must leave a white border because printing out to the edge would damage the printhead.
  • The ability to print on non-PVC cards. Dye sublimation requires a porous surface available only through PVC cards.
  • More durable and abrasion-resistant cards
  • Fraud protection, since the film is inherently tamper-evident
