Entrust Datacard™ CR825™ Instant Issuance System
This instant issuance system turns blank white stock into highly customized, ready-to-use credit, debit and ATM cards instantly..
The new CR825 Instant Issuance System uses pigment ink, which provides a wide color spectrum and brilliant looking color, sure to engage customers. Print from blank card stock and reduce costs associated with managing pre-printed card stock.
Pigment ink combined with 600 dpi printing results in extremely high resolutions printing enabling great design elements and clear printing on back of card.
A number or security features have been designed into the system to ensure the security of data and protect it from threats. These are standard in every printer.
The new system has the ability to add an additional layer of retransfer film to the card, adding durability to extend the life of the card.
The Entrust Datacard single wire solution is the easiest to deploy in the industry today, and provides a solution that is scalable from 1 to n locations, without limitations you traditionally see.
This platform was developed based on years of experience with desktop and central issuance development. We stand behind the quality and reliability of this printer, so you can be certain your print on demand solution is always available.
