Further to the blog post Before You Buy An ID Card Printer – 3 Tips, here is some more information to help you make the most informed decision on what ID card printer to buy.

The first consideration, when buying an ID card printer, is how many cards you will need to print per year. There are generally three ranges of card printing volumes that ID card printers work to. However the characteristics of the ID printers on the market are very different and correspond to various needs. We recommend the EVOLIS ID Card Printer range and solutions to match differing levels of printing volumes are suggest below.

1/ High Volume: over 5.000 cards per year

If you want to print over 5.000 cards per year, you need to buy a printing powerhouse. This type of printer can be used several times a day and has high-volume ribbon capacities. The price is expensive. However there are a lot of security options available, which make up for the price aspect. Moreover the warranty is better.
