We’ve all encountered the situation when we must replace our worn-out ID card badge holder with a brand-new one, only to discover that some of the printed images and text from our card have transferred onto the PVC substrate.
This presents a dilemma – disposing of the card could expose our details to unintended eyes. Moreover, it might escalate into a larger GDPR concern if this issue affects the entire company.
What's Dye Migration
Dye migration refers to the transfer of print dye, from one substrate to another. This occurs when the print from your ID card transfers to the inner side of your PVC card holder. This normally happens when the badge holder and ID card are exposed to excessive heat or cold throughout its lifetime.
You’ll see a degrading of colour on your PVC card but more importantly a transfer of your sensitive data onto the inner PVC card holder.
Disposing of your old PVC badge holder now becomes a GDPR issue as sensitive and confidential data is exposed.
That’s where an anti-print transfer badge holder comes to the rescue. The special material used in these holders ensures that the dye from your cards doesn’t migrate and expose you to potential GDPR issues.
Creating a GDPR compliant badge holder.
Typically, 90% of corporate and government organisations utilise DTC (Direct To Card) ID card printers, where the print is applied directly to the card with a light ‘overlay.’ Our new Primacy 2 ID card printer takes an extra step by offering an additional overlay option to enhance dye migration prevention. While laminating the entire card is rare for corporate ID cards, it’s more common for student ID cards, which require a lifespan of over 5 years.
