- VOLUME REQUIREMENT – Card printers offer specific settings and an output capacity on how many cards can be printed on a monthly basis. You will need to choose a model of printer that can handle your monthly capacity. The right printer depends on how many Ids or cards you will need to print in a given year.
- RELIABILITY – Owning an equipment, reliability and durability are critically important. Not only do you want a reliable machine that will last for the long term, but you also want one that is reliable and can produce high printing quality at all times.
- COST – The cost of a card printer is important and can vary based on the printer’s capabilities. Your total cost is highly dependent on other related consumables such as printer ribbons, cards, and cleaning kits.
- SECURITY FEATURES – Is it important that your cards be highly secure and tamper-proof. You need to consider a security add on which customizes each card with a unique impression, like your logo. Custom holographic laminates are also available, adding both durability and security to your card design.
