Product Description

Unlike traditional direct-to-card printers, which use a printhead that prints through a ribbon directly onto the card, retransfer printers print onto a flexible, transparent film that is then thermally bonded to the card.

In General, Benefits of Retransfer Printing Include:

  • Higher image quality and print resolution
  • The ability to print on uneven card surfaces such as smart cards
  • True edge-to-edge printing (via over-the-edge printing). Traditional card printers leave a white border at the edges of the card.
  • The ability to print on non-PVC cards. Direct-to-card printers require a dye-receiving surface available only through PVC cards.
  • More durable and abrasion-resistant cards
  • Fraud protection, since the film is inherently tamper-evident

Advantages of Zebra’s Innovative Retransfer Card Printer Zebra’s ZXP Series 8 printer achieves the fastest print speed while maintaining top image quality, making it the best-in-class retransfer printer available on the market.

  • Zebra achieves print speeds that far exceed any other retransfer printer, and that are comparable to many of the fastest direct-to-card printers on the market today.
  • Zebra’s image-processing technology compensates for image errors normally caused by high printing speeds—enabling photo-quality images and print resolution even at increased print speeds.
  • Zebra’s patented image transfer process applies film to both sides of the card in a single pass, drastically reducing the print time. The result is photo-like image quality and best-in-class throughput for mainstream printing, encoding and laminating—so you enjoy increased operational efficiency.
