Aptika has been helping customers create ID card solutions for more than 20 years, so we know quite a bit about all three components. Based on our experience, we recommend Zebra printers and supplies for just about any card printing application.
Zebra offers advanced card printing technology in printers covering all the bases, from high-speed industrial applications to compact units designed for customer-facing environments. Their card printer lineup includes cost-effective direct-to-card printers and high-performance retransfer printers that produce cards with the highest image quality and maximum durability. Zebra also offers a complete selection of card stocks, ribbons, laminates, and other supplies to support any organization.
With Zebra covering the hardware and supplies, an end-to-end solution requires just one additional component: software.
There are four licensing options for IDC, ranging from IDpack in the Cloud – Element, which supports up to 750 cards, all the way up to IDpack in the Cloud – Ultimate with support for up to 15,000 cards. So, there's an IDC solution to fit any organization.
IDC provides all the software tools you need to create and manage cards. There's a Designer component that allows you to create your projects, choose your templates, and configure them. And there's a Producer component that enables you to create your records, capture pictures, and print your cards.
Since Zebra's card printers are the easiest to use, it's natural to pair them with IDC. Here's just a brief look at some additional reasons IDC and Zebra card printers work so well together:
IDC makes it fast and easy to design cards, and we've incorporated many shortcuts that help you speed your cards into production. That enables you to get the most out of the high-speed print capabilities of Zebra's card printers.
Advanced Printing Technology
IDC software makes it easy to design cards with edge-to-edge graphics that maximize the output of Zebra's photo-quality 300 dpi and high-definition 600 dpi card printers. With IDC and Zebra, you have tools that make it easy to ensure that every card is printed with the sharpest images, text, and barcodes.
Single- and Double-Sided Printing
You can take advantage of the double-sided printing capabilities of Zebra card printers with IDC Business, Professional, and Ultimate licenses.
