Datacard Group Debuts Complete Card-to-Envelope Solution at CARTES & IDentification 2011 in Paris, France
Inline solutions deliver highly impactful cards and personalized card carriers on-demand
MINNETONKA, Minn.—(Nov. 14, 2011)—Datacard Group, the world leader in secure ID and card personalization solutions, today announced that it will be showcasing the complete inline Datacard® MX6000™ card issuance system – featuring the Datacard® Artista® VHD retransfer color printing module and a dual-interface smart card personalization module – along with the enhanced MXD™ card delivery system and MXi™ envelope insertion system at CARTES & IDentification 2011 in Paris, France, stand #3D055.
Visitors to the booth will have the opportunity to see demonstrations of this complete card-to-envelope solution, which delivers full-color cards and highly personalized carriers on-demand, starting from white card stock and blank paper.
The MX6000 card issuance system, which brings together the broadest range of card personalization technologies in the industry, is a truly modular system that can print up to 1,500 unique cards per hour. Combined with the Artista VHD retransfer color printing module and dual-interface smart card personalization module, this inline card issuance system simplifies the card issuance process and measurably improves operational efficiency. Features include fast, secure and productive personalization of contact, contactless and dual-interface smart cards, as well as printing of true edge-to-edge, full-color customized card designs and backgrounds with 600 dpi image quality.
Seamless integration with the MXD card delivery system enables card issuers to also customize marketing messages and information that turns blank paper into highly personalized, full-color card carriers. Variable color printing of form sizes up to 11” x 17” or A3, as well as customized marketing messages and information—such as card activation steps or expanded terms and conditions—can be printed on-demand. The ability to go from bulk pre-printed paper to customized forms greatly reduces the need for financial card issuers to manage a large supply of pre-printed forms, ultimately increasing initial and sustained cost savings associated with storing the pre-printed inventory.
Combine this with the MXi envelope insertion system, and organizations will have a complete inline solution with full-color personalized card and carriers for ready-to-mail packages.
“We are very excited to demonstrate this industry-leading, complete inline high-volume card issuance solution at CARTES,” said Russell St. John, senior vice president of global marketing for Datacard Group. “Our products offer something entirely new for both the marketing and operational sides of the business by seamlessly transforming ordinary cards and mailings into compelling, brand-building customer experiences while reducing costs and complexities.”
