Transfer Printing and Card Fading on ZXP8 and ZX(9 Card Printers (Lamination Recommended)

Article ID: 84511446



Topic or Information

When the image is transferred to the card from the film a protective wear layer is also transferred to prevent card fading from ultraviolet light. Therefore lamination of the card is not required to prevent fading.  

Applies To

ZXP Series 8 Card Printers

ZXP Series 9 Card Printers


While laminating the card provides an extra amount of protection from ultraviolet light the main reason for laminating the card is dependent upon the use of the card.

If the card will  be continually swiped through a barcode or magnetic stripe reader, placed in a plastic pouch, or used in a chemically harsh environment  then lamination of the card will provide the extra protection needed to prevent card damage and dye migration.
