September 2020

When we first made the decision to start selling ID card printers and ID card printing solutions to our customers, many years ago, our number one priority was ensuring we could deliver on our customer’s expectations, for the best price possible.

Since then, we have significantly increased the quality and overall impact our professional

printed ID cards have on the end-user.

We pride ourselves in the quality of the machinery, Cards Plus uses to produce our ID cards, as well as the extraordinary hard work from the entire production team that goes into offering our ID card printing service.

To offer the best prices to our customers, for ID card printing, we leveraged our relationship with our long term partners for some of the best deals on the resources we use to manufacture our ID Cards.

Further, Cards Plus offers a large number of ID card Printers.

Over the last several years, our team has made it our goal, to put several ID card printers to the test. We found that there are three brands, which set the benchmark for ID card printers in terms of reliability, effectiveness and useability. These brands are NBS, Matica and Datacard.

Plug and play plastic ID card printers are the ideal way to print ID cards for mission-critical projects.

We categorise our ID card printers into 2 categories: Direct to Card Printing and Retransfer Printing.

For the category of ‘Direct to Card Printing’, we would highly recommend the following ID card printers: Javelin DNA & Pro, Fargo DTC 1500, Datacard SD260 & 360, Datacard SD460 and the Fargo DTC 4500E
