​Single-Sided Card Printers

Single-sided card printers, sometimes simply referred to as simplex card printers, are ID card printers designed to create one-sided plastic ID cards and badges.

Technically, single-sided card printers are still able to print on both sides of ID cards, but it requires the operator to manually flip cards into a feeder or hopper. Single-sided card printers don't have the built-in flipper mechanism that rotates the card automatically​.

Two of the most common types of simplex printers are direct ​to card and reverse transfer, but inkjet printers are available as well. ​Some simplex printers are field-upgradable to be able to print double-sided (duplex), usually by installing a flipper module.

Most simplex printers create credit card-sized ​cards (3.370​"​x 2.125"). Oversized simplex printers create larger card formats, including 3.375" x 4.875", 3.46" x 5.5", 3.5" x 5.5" and 4" x 6".

If you have any questions or need assistance on ​single-sided card printers, contact us or call today at (877) 213-8180.
