Product Summary

Datacard® ImageCard® Select and Select 2 card printers redefine the standards for speed, productivity and robustness. They deliver the reliable performance and fast print speeds to meet the needs of virtually any low- to mid-volume operation requiring full-color printing on one or both sides of a card. These versatile card printers offer a perfect fit for elementary schools, municipalities, corporations, casinos and theme parks.

The ImageCard Select can print full-color images on one side of a card at speeds up to 150 cards per hour. The ImageCard Select 2 gives you the same capabilities but also offers duplex printing at speeds up to 100 cards per hour. Both printers offer "edge-to-edge" printing capabilities to maximize card design flexibility.

Key features include a "smart" printer driver, operator-replaceable printhead, topcoat application and "hands-free" card cleaning to simplify operation. Options include magnetic stripe encoding and smart card personalization, or both.
