Taking a holistic approach for government ID card programs


Organizations need to take more of a holistic approach when selecting the right desktop printer for a government ID program – part of this includes the print technology, but it also includes the quality of the card, durability and security features put on the card, and overall cost of the program. Datacard reports…

Government organizations are regularly challenged to optimize their secure ID programs to ensure that they continuously combat daily threats – from protecting identities and proprietary information, to ensuring that the card they produce is a high-quality document that will be consistent in appearance and closely match all other documents issued in the same ID program.

In recent years, desktop card printing has taken critical leaps forward in government ID programs. Many of the card printers have now incorporated a variety of new technologies to create higher quality ID cards – such as better printing and personalization of images, as well as more security and durability features.

It is very important for governments to consider how to issue their credentials. When service is a priority, they often choose to issue ID cards in many offices over the counter – typically using desktop card printers. And, there are multiple options and features that government organizations need to consider when determining which printers fit their needs.
