High Definition Printing makes use of re-transfer print technology, and provides a perfect solution for printing all the most commonly used cards, for instance contact smartcards, contactless smartcards, and clamshell proximity cards.

The HDP5000 Film fuses to the surface of your cards, adhering to ridges and indentations formed by embedded electronics, and offers an extra layer of card durability and security.

If a counterfeiter attempts to peel the film off to modify the card, then the printed image will destroy itself.

Conventional dye sublimation printers must leave clear space around contact pads to avoid print head damage.
