ID Card Printers Review: IDP Smart Series-31


The Smart Series 31 from IDP printers is one of the most reliable direct-to-card ID card printers out there. It comes bundled with all the essentials required to get started with printing quality ID cards and badges for your organization straight out of the box. It is also covered by a 3-year warranty by IDP printers, while you can upgrade the Smart-31 printer to support dual-sided printing as well.

IDP Smart Series 31 is a value-for-money ID card printer and delivers significantly faster printing speeds and high-quality output. The Smart-31 printer can be an ideal choice for businesses that need an affordable, low-volume ID card printer with necessary ID card printing capabilities. At the same time, it sports all the fundamental features and technology to meet the user's varied printing needs.

The user-friendly interface and fast printing speeds of IDP Smart-31 make it an excellent option for organizations that need to print single cards and badges often. The ID card printer comes with an 80-card input hopper and a 25-card output hopper. This makes printing small batches of ID cards and badges quite simple as there is no need to load cards continuously or hand-feed them manually.

IDP Smart-31 id card printer can print a full-color single-sided ID card in just around 23 seconds while producing a monochrome single-sided card takes merely 5 seconds. This makes it a viable upgrade from starter ID card printers that can take longer to create cards, which can be annoying during rush hours. IDP Smart Series-31 makes small-batch printing quick and efficient, while not compromising the ID cards' quality thanks to 300dpi resolution printing options for both color and monochrome.

The Smart-31 from IDP printers also comes with robust security features to manage access as well as data. It has a password verification function that allows you to set administrator and user authentications for better access control. The ID card printer can also detect the authorized PCs automatically for printing ID cards and badges and encoding them as needed.

The Smart-31 series is an excellent printing solution for those seeking an intuitive and user-friendly printer with a compact design with straightforward operation and easy drop-in ribbon cartridges. The IDP Smart-31 id card printer can be upgraded to support multiple data encoding options for card security. You can choose from magnetic stripe encoding to MIFARE, iClass, DESFire contactless encoding, and more depending upon your ID card application and organizational needs. Pair together with an ID Badge Slot Punch in order to facilitate a faster security badge printing experience in your business or organization.
