Retransfer Printing Technology
Unlike the direct-to-card printing process which uses a color ink ribbon to print the dye directly onto the card surface, retransfer printing technology uses two ribbon types – a color ink ribbon and a retransfer film. The printer uses the color ink ribbon to print images on the retransfer film, and a heat roller to transfer the image over the entire surface of a card. The application of the retransfer film to the card provides a layer of protection and a glossy photo-like finish, which helps extend card life and offers superb image quality.
