AlphaCard PRO 700 ID Card System




The new standard in direct-to-card printers for visually secure cards, the AlphaCard PRO 700 ID Card System features a free a Custom AlphaGuard watermark ($598 value) that can be securely programmed with your logo or artwork, an industry-leading 4 year warranty, and a free year of AlphaCarePlus.

Secure Single or Dual-Sided Card Printing

The AlphaCard PRO 700 makes it effortless to quickly print batches with its 100 card input hopper and a 70 card output hopper. An alternate single-feed slot is available for one-off card prints; simply insert a card and within seconds the printed card will be returned through the same slot.

Choose dual-sided printing when ordering your PRO 700 for the ability to print dual-sided cards with no effort, right out of the box. If you decide later on that you want to upgrade your printer, dual-sided printing can be added with a simple drop-in upgrade.

The PRO 700 uses high quality dye film ribbons, available in several different styles. For full colored cards, choose a YMCKO ribbon which includes an overcoat panel to protect the card and print the AlphaGuard design. For dual-sided cards, choose a YMCKOK ribbon.

Black monochrome ribbons are available with or without an overcoat panel (choose the overcoat ribbon if you want an AlphaGuard watermark on your monochrome cards). There are also monochrome ribbons in a variety of other colors and metallic finishes.

Built-In AlphaGuard Watermark Technology

Print secure ID cards at no additional cost with the built-in AlphaGuard technology using standard printer ribbons and cards.

The hologram-style watermarks are easy to see when light is reflected off the card, but don't interfere with your card design. AlphaGuard makes it easier to identify authentic cards and deters card tampering or duplication.

Choose from four pre-set grid design:

  • Secure shield grid
  • Globe grid
  • Geometric box grid
  • 3D box grid
  • Intricate universe (full size)

You can choose from the pre-set designs, and control other AlphaGuard settings, through the printer driver.

Unique to the AlphaCard PRO 700, you can also design a Custom AlphaGuard to add another layer of visual security, at no additional cost (a $598 value). A Custom AlphaGuard is tied to your organization so no other business can use your design, making it even harder to duplicate or tamper with your cards.
