Card Printers

Overview & Key Features


With the HID® ELEMENT industrial card printer/encoder/laser engraver, HID Global delivers the most reliable, cost-effective, high-volume ID and financial card issuance available in the industry.

Desktop-based yet heavy-duty, HID ELEMENT is especially suited for the high-cycle requirements of large government ID card programs, financial institutions, laborious service bureau conditions and demanding large enterprise environments.
Modular and scalable, HID ELEMENT offers high-resolution, UV inkjet printing, optional laser engraving and an array of encoding options to meet a broad range of credential program requirements.

With its reliable operation, minimal maintenance, highly-configurable functionality, scalable throughput and lowest total cost of ownership (TCO) in the industry — HID ELEMENT is the next evolution in superior-quality, high-volume card personalization and issuance.

  • Unprecedented modularity in a desktop: HID ELEMENT offers the flexibility to purchase UV inkjet printing and laser engraving systems either together or as separate, stand-alone units to meet unique card program requirements
  • Ease of use: HID ELEMENT is as easy to use as standard DTC and retransfer desktop printers but with the modularity, power and throughput speed to rival central issuance
