NBS Javelin J800i Retransfer Printer

Javelin J800i retransfer card printer

With the Javelin J800i, you can print high quality over-the-edge graphics onto all types of plastic cards. By printing a reverse image on the underside of retransfer film, then fusing the film to the card surface, the Javelin J800i creates an image quality that looks more like a sharp glossy photo than an ordinary ID badge.

Printing on film instead of directly on the card means that the uneven surface of technology cards doesn’t compromise image quality. The Javelin J800i can print up to the edge of smart chip contacts, and over the edge of the card.
