Are you looking for a durable, professional ID card printer with a wide range of features? Or perhapse you need to find the supplies for your printer? We’ve gathered up all the information you need about IDP ID card printers and supplies.

IDP ID Card Printers & Systems

IDP ID card printers come in a range of styles, all designed for easy customization to meet your organization’s exact card printing needs. Choose from single or dual-sided, lamination, magnetic stripe encoding and more with these professional IDP printer models.

For small organizations, the IDP Smart-30 is a powerful entry-level small batch printing device. With 100 card input and 25 card output hoppers you can quickly and easily print small batches of cards without having to stop frequently to load more cards, helping you streamline the printing process.

If you need a more powerful printer, consider the IDP Smart-50. With a higher output than the Smart-30 – a 40 card output hopper vs. the 25 card hopper – you can print even more cards with less down time between batches.

Do you need to print cards in large quantities? The IDP Smart-70 has a 500 card input hopper and 100 card output hopper (with the option to upgrade to a matching 500 card output hopper) so you can quickly and efficiently print cards. If you need longer-lasting cards, consider the IDP Smart-70 Laminating printer.

IDP Color & Monochrome Printer Ribbons

Printer ribbons are what your ID card printer uses to print, instead of ink like the printers you may be used to. These ribbons come in a huge range of styles and print yields, so you can print everything from full-color photo ID cards to simple membership cards with a barcode and member ID number.

IDP color ribbons are used to print all the colors on your ID cards along with black text or barcodes. Monochrome ribbons print in only a single color with no shading or gradient.

Not sure which ribbon you need for your ID card printer? Try the handy “Find My Ribbon” tool at the top of the page to find all the ribbons specific to your printer model. Just select your printer’s make and model to see all compatible ribbons!

IDP Overlamiantes

If you want to laminate your cards to incraese their durability, you’ll need an overlaminate film in addition to the color/monochrome ribbon you use to print your design. These laminate films come in both clear and holographic, so you can add a holographic layer to your ID cards to increase their visual security.

IDP Cleaning Kits

The last supply you’ll need to keep your IDP ID card printer system working is a cleaning kit. You should be regularly cleaning your ID card printer to prevent the build-up of dust and debris that can damage the printer; a good rule to follow is to clean your printer every time you replace the ribbon.

What comes in a cleaning kit? Supplies will vary by printer model, but can include some or all of the following:

  • Cleaning pens
  • Extra large cleaning cards
  • Swabs
  • Wipes
  • Cleaning rollers
