The Datacard SP35 card printer is a low-cost printer that is suitable for issuing ID cards, gift and loyalty cards, membership cards, hotel room keys and more.

The SP35 provides fast print speeds, superb image quality and with its aesthetically pleasing looks, the printer would make a welcomed addition to any desktop. The printer personalises up to 120 full-colour cards and up to 500 one-colour cards per hour. In addition, the SP35 is lightweight and is easily transportable, allowing one to print cards in confined workspaces. A standard USB connection makes installations fast and simple at any location.

The SP35 card printer leverages Datacard's exclusive Advanced Imaging Technology to produce vivid, life-like full- or one-colour photos, graphics, and text across a card's entire surface. The technology uses optimised print ribbons and user-adjustable controls to yield smooth, uniform solid backgrounds, improved colour matching with image capture devices, enhanced bar code printing and sharp reproduction of edges and fine text.

Smartcard capabilities

In addition to standard bar code printing, the SP35 gives provides optional magnetic stripe and integrated smartcard capabilities, including contactless smartcards, with a simple field upgrade. These technologies can make cards compatible with access control and other automated systems across an enterprise, thereby creating new opportunities to increase security and efficiency. A 'smart' printer driver provides all the information one needs on-screen, including message prompts, recovery instruction, colour image previews and Online Help. The printer driver is available for Windows 98, 2000, Me and XP operating systems. Quick-change supplies, operator-replaceable printheads, front-facing input and output hoppers and continuous card cleaning help maximise uptime and ensure a low cost of ownership.

Extensive warranty coverage

Datacard backs the SP35 card printer with both printer and printhead warranties. Standard printer coverage includes 18 months of standard depot service on all parts and labour. The company also honours printhead warranty coverage for 18 months, with no pass restrictions and no prorating of printhead replacement costs. Furthermore, the SP35 features Datacard proprietary ribbons designed specifically for the SP35 card printer. When the printer recognises that a Datacard ribbon is installed, all enhanced product features are enabled and card printing can begin. The printer will only print colour images when Datacard proprietary colour ribbons are installed.
