Retransfer Printers | Cardsplus


Re-Transfer (also called a “reverse transfer,” “over-the-edge,” or “high-definition”) ID Card Printing is a process which improves the quality of the card by printing on a laminate film that is then thermally bonded to the card instead of printing the image on the card surface through the ribbon. These printers were specially designed to print on technology cards, or press like cards due to the high quality print.
