Datacard SD460TM Card Printer And CD800TM Card Printer
Entrust Datacard has a unique, patent-pending tactile impression feature that is available as an option with the SD460™ card printer and CD800™ card printer with inline lamination. The feature creates an impression on the card substrate that you can see and feel. The tactile impression process uses a unique die to create the impression, which differs from the embossing or indenting technology available today. When used with a patch laminate, it helps make the card tamper evident and provides a higher level of security.
Similar to our holographic overlays, a one-of-a-kind tactile design can be created specifically for your card program. Contact an Entrust Datacard representative to learn how.
Security You Can See And Feel
Card security is an evolving process that requires new technology specifically designed to protect people, programs and budgets. Datacard Group’s patent-pending tactile impression feature offers a truly impressive differentiator that takes security and card design to new levels of personalization.
Enhanced security at the time of personalization
The key behind creating a secure ID is to incorporate multiple layers of defence throughout the card that inhibit tampering and counterfeiting - yet still remains easy to visually verify for authenticity. When using the tactile impression feature, cards instantly become more secure by physically altering the card substrate and overlay and patch laminate with a feature that is difficult to replicate, yet easy to validate by inspectors. It also enhances tamper evidence by tearing a patch laminate during an attempt to remove it, rendering the laminate unusable for application onto counterfeit cards. Positioning the impression over the portion of a cardholder photo or personal information also protects this sensitive data from alteration.
Impressive branding, impressive customization
In addition to increased security, a tactile impression is perfect for card issuers looking for ways to highlight and promote their brand with eye-catching features unlike anything currently available in the marketplace. Datacard Group offers a variety of generic designs that fit most market applications or issuers can also choose to design a unique die that’s distinctively theirs. A die design can be anything from text only, to an image, or a combination of both. For the ultimate level of secure customization, pair a custom die with a customized holographic overlay also available from Datacard Group.
Datacard Group offers a choice of five different generic impressor designs that are applicable to a variety of markets. Datacard Group also offers custom die creation. To begin the process of creating a custom design and for best practices regarding impressor placement and design please contact your Datacard solutions provider for assistance.
