The Best Single-Sided Retransfer Printers For Your Budget

Retransfer ID card printers deliver exceptional print quality and performance. They are ideal for both bulk printing and on-demand printing environments, and always produce professional-quality ID cards to suit your needs. 

The most common type of printers are direct-to-card, or dye sublimation. This process prints directly onto each PVC card. Retransfer printers, on the other hand, use a two step process in which the color images are first printed on a clear substrate that is then heat treated onto the card. This allows for retransfer printer heads to never have to make contact with the surface of the card, and allows for increased card durability, improved print consistency, and full edge-to-edge printing.

Below are our two favorite single-sided reverse transfer ID card printers that you can choose for your establishment.
