If you are using a manual feed printer, skip this step and keep a supply of blank cards close to the printer. Do the following to load cards into the printer:
- Open the input hopper.
- Load the cards into the input hopper. A diagram inside the hopper shows the correct orientation for each type of card.
- 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.
- Insert ISO magnetic stripe cards with the stripe (back side) facing down and toward the right.
- Insert smart cards with the smart card chip facing up and toward the back of the hopper.
- Close the input hopper.
