  • A stunning, high-end look for every card design   photo quality imagery and high resolution printing show off your brand to the world.
  • Improved security of schools, airports and other key facilities – pigment ink for lifelike skin tones and easier card-to-cardholder authentication. In addition, the system has enhanced security features to protect the integrity of your data
  • Savings for your card program   long lasting images mean fewer card replacements and system modularity means you can add to the platform as card program needs change. Add new encoding options or lamination with ease.

Brilliant looking cards built to stand the test of time
The new CR805 retransfer card printer uses pigment ink, which is not susceptible to UV fading, resulting in images that last a much longer. This results in less card replacements, lowering the cost of your card program.

High resolution printing for stunning resolution
Pigment ink combined with 600 dpi printing results in extremely high resolutions printing. This enables the printing of microtext, and other machine readable elements such as OCR codes and 1D and 2D barcodes.

Flexibility to meet a variety of card program needs
A number or security features have been designed into the system to ensure the security of data and protect it from threats. These are standard in every printer.

Enhanced Security to ensure data integrity
Reliably print up to 100 one-sided cards per hour (36 seconds per card) or 55 two-sided cards per hour (65 seconds per card).

Reliability to print cards when you need them
This platform was developed based on years of experience with desktop and central issuance development. We stand behind the quality and reliability of this printer, so you can be certain your print on demand solution is always available.

Durability options to meet your needs for card life
The new system has the ability to add an additional layer of retransfer film to the card, adding durability without the use of the laminator. Additional durability options available when the laminator is added, offering custom or generic holographic laminates.
