New Trusted Identity Begins

Why did IDP develop the SMART-81?

In recent years, there has been a growing market demand from banks, large companies, and public institutions to issue cards with demanding designs and integrated technology to benefit customers.

Customers who use the card themselves also increase a higher need for a CUSTOMIZED card than for a STANDARDIZED card design and benefits, and they want to get it as quickly as possible right after issuing quality cards.
With that said, organizations are too burdened with inventory to have all pre-printed card designs according to various customer needs.

However, if using retransfer card printing technology, organizations that previously stocked pre-printed cards that were then personalized will no longer need to do so.  

Because, the SMART-81, retransfer printing technology produces cards that are of pre-print quality that can be personalized on-demand or in small batches no matter the card designs change and it’s optimized for high-quality printing of IC or RF cards with bumpy surfaces.

SMART-81 defines the new standard for retransfer card printers in the market and offers patented technology developed in-house by IDP. 
The new printer reinforces security, enhances ease of use, and minimizes card issuance time.
