HDP® Secure Materials

HDP Printer Ribbons and Film:

High Definition Printing™ ribbons and HDP Film combine to produce virtually tamperproof and durable cards with crisp, 300 dpi images – even on the surface of technology cards.

  • Applying an overlaminate to your cards not only improves durability, it greatly increases the security of the card. Overlaminates with standard or custom holograms create an ID card that is difficult to forge, yet easy to verify.

DTC® Materials

Optimized materials made for Direct-to-Card printing technology.

  • Custom dye-sublimation and resin ribbons work seamlessly with HID printers to consistently produce colorful images, crisp text and precise bar codes.
