Retransfer Printing Technology

Count on Datacard® SR200 Retransfer Printers to produce high-quality, real edge-to-edge printing over a variety of PVC and non-PVC card surfaces, including contact and contactless smart cards.

Retransfer printing technology uses two ribbon types – a color ink ribbon and a retransfer film. The printer uses the color ink ribbon to print images on the retransfer film, and a heat roller to transfer the image over the entire surface of a card. The application of the retransfer film to the card provides a layer of protection and a glossy photo-like finish, which helps extend card life and offers superb image quality.

Datacard® SR200 retransfer card printers handle the volume and technical requirements of a wide range of applications including:

  • Government IDs and licenses
  • Employee or visitor IDs
  • Customer loyalty cards
  • Transit passes
  • Club membership cards
  • Student IDs
