Can you print on the “Prox” cards we use to get into our building?
Absolutely, we do this for hundreds of clients. You just send us your blank white card stock, which we store securely, ready to use whenever you place an order. Or, if you prefer, we can procure the prox cards for you. If you’re not sure about which card technology to choose, among the dozens available, just call us, as this is our specialty! And there is no extra charge for printing on your prox cards.
What print technology is used to make the cards?
There are several types of printing processes available for the printing of photo ID cards. The process used at InstantCard is the highest quality available on the market today, called thermal re-transfer. The high-definition (300 dpi) printing is transferred to a clear plastic film, which is then permanently bonded, using a high-temperature heat-sealing process, to the surface of the card. While more expensive, this method ensures the highest level of print quality. The bright, vibrant colors are particularly notable when compared to cards made with small, cheaper printers which use “DTC” (Direct-To-Card) technology.
