Offset quality edge to edge printing

First, Re-transfer printer prints image onto receiving layer of re-transfer film. Second, it laminates(re-transfers) the image from base film on re-transfer film onto card surface.

Example of light diffusion

Flat surface prevents the light from diffusing. Therefore it is enable to realize clear contrast.

Re-transfer printing does not break print-head due to foreign particles

Re-transfer printer does not print on hard surface plastic card, prints on flexible re-transfer film.
In case foreign particle was on the re-transfer film, it is sunk into soft rubber roller and does not scratch surface of print head.

    Direct to card printing
    Direct Printer might have a damage on thermal printhead, due to a top of thermal printhead contcts on foreing particles directly.

Suitable for various types of card

PVC cards
The surface of PVC card is porous.Dye inks can penetrate only porous surface.

  • PVC cards
  • PVC cards

Non-PVC cards
Generally, the surface non-PVC cards (Polyester, Polycarbonate, ABS) is not porous. Re-transfer printer prints on dedicated receiving layer on re-transfer film instead of card surface, and then, laminates (re-transfer) re-transfer film with printed image onto card surface.
