Inkjet PVC

When printing on inkjet PVC cards you simply place the cards in to your tray, and use of our our alignment templates to print. The printer then prints directly on to the card. The ink dries immediately.

Inkjet PVC cards are just like standard PVC cards (like credit cards), but with a special coating added, which allows them to be printed using an inkjet printer.

Inkjet PVC cards only work with specific inkjet printers which we have made trays for.

You can not use inkjet PVC cards in any laser printers, nor can they be used in any printer which we do not have a tray for.

Let's make sure

If your printer is not compatible, you can buy a compatible one or just use Teslin/Pouch or Teslin/Full Sheet with your current printer.

Is my printer compatible?

Steps

1. Prepare ID card design.
2. Prepare layout for printing.
3. Print using the tray.

Help! How do I print?

Use our ID Card Printing Tool to generate a PDF with your ID cards placed in the correct spots for printing.

Or download 2-card and 4-card layout templates from the Inkjet PVC Help page and position the cards in the layout yourself.

Don't have a card design? You can download our example and start tweaking that to obtain a card design that you like.
