ID Badges & Cards - Understanding Printing Technology

Card ID Badge Printer and easy to use device, which is comparable to consumer printers in their ability to use right out of the box. However, like most card printers operate somewhat differently from ink-jet and laser printers, it helps to understand a little about this SublimationDye technology.Dye sublimation or dye sub, used.Thermal printing technology is most commonly used to put a layer of dye skin ID badge. In dye-sublimation printing, colors are not laid down as individual dots, as is done in inkjet printers. Dye sublimation make a picture look more realistic.

Inside particular dye sublimation printer is a roll of transparent film that resembles sheets of red, blue, yellow, and gray plastic attached end to end. Embedded in this film are solid dye corresponding to the four basic colors used in printing: cyan, magenta, yellow and black. The print head Heats up as it passes through the film, causing the dye to vaporize and permeate the glossy surface of the card before they return to solid form. Color cards penetrate the surface evaporates, creating a welcome change to the edges of each pixel, instead of open border between dye and card produced by inkjets. And because the color card embed, also less vulnerable to fading and distortion over time.YMCKOThe create ID badge printer by placing a layer of pigment in the following order: Yellow (Y), Magenta (M) cyan (C) Black (K) or resin blackClear: (O) or OvercoatThe color image is a combination of Y, M, C & coating also release the black shapes. 

K resin coating allows very sharply defined black text, barcode etc to add. Mantle layer acts as a protective layer against wear and fading and can also safely carry the image, which can not be photocopied - such as Magicard security Holokote watermark.Reverse TransferWith reverse transfer, printer to print reverse transfer re transparent PVC film, which is then laminated to the ID Cards & Protects the image from handling damage and produces images edge-to-edge brilliant. The quality and durability of the card so as to be achieved by off-set printing process but has the advantage that each card be re-move different.

Because film laminated on the face of the card, it is possible to print right at the end, such as dye sublimation printer that prints mostly in the left corner of a small (less than 0.5mm) border.LaminationID white badge and card lamination involves placing a layer of clear PVC on the surface of the card. Laminates are used to protect the image of the card, especially where the card is swiped on a regular basis through a magnetic stripe reader, where laminate will allow 10,000 's of friction before seen images Laminates wear occurs.ID card is either done at the same time as the print (with a reverse transfer printer) or separately with a dedicated laminator. For added security, security film lamination contains optical or holographic logo available.
