Aplicard offers the possibility to customize plastic cards according to the indications of our customers, using industrial equipment both for initial large-scale issuance as well as for the subsequent small lots. The customizations can be graphical or electrical.
Monochrome thermal printing: a printing method that uses heat and pressure to melt the resin of the ribbon onto the PVC of the card and thus print the customer’s variable data as name, surname, customer number.
Sublimation color: printing method when the iodine pigments of the ribbon pass from solid to gaseous state by applying heat and pressure on the PVC of the card. After color printing, a 0.025 micron film is transferred to prevent iodine pigments from being sublimated again due to the heat. The print quality is 300 dpi. Normally, it is used to print a photo of the card holder for identification purposes.
