Loading Cards into the Printer - SD160 and SD260


If you are using a manual feed printer or are printing rewritable cards, skip this step and keep a supply of blank cards close to the printer.

  1. Open the input hopper.
  2. Load the cards into the input hopper. A diagram inside the hopper shows the correct orientation for each type of card.
    1. Cards can stick together. Slide or fan the cards to separate the edges before placing them in the hopper. Handle cards by their edges only.
    2. Insert ISO magnetic stripe cards with the stripe (back side) facing down and toward the right.
    3. Insert smart cards with the smart card chip facing up and toward the back of the hopper.
  3. Close the input hopper.
