Thermal Printing

Thermal Printing is a printing process where colour is applied onto a card surface using heat. The thermal print element contains a large number of controlled heating elements, which heat the film at certain points in order to transfer the ink.

According to the type of ribbon that is used for personalisation, data can be printed onto the card either monochrome or fully coloured. Using this method cardholder information, images or photos can be printed on the card, adapted to the design.
