Retransfer printers (also known as reverse transfer) are capable of producing photographic quality images in high resolutions and vivid colors. As opposed to the traditional dye sublimation direct-to-card printers, retransfer printers apply color to a transparent film that is thermally bonded to the card. This allows for an improved printing speed, as well as an edge-to-edge coverage without a white border to suit the professional and the aesthetic requirements of your institution.
Retransfer printing technology additionally leaves you free to use both PVC and non-PVC materials and to print directly on uneven surfaces, such as smart cards or pre-punctured cards. Furthermore, the resulting products are more resistant to abrasions and tampering, providing a better durability and fraud protection.
