Datacard Group, the world leader in secure ID and card personalization solutions, will be launching two exciting new instant issuance products the BAI, Retail Delivery Conference, November 18 - 20, 2008, in Orlando, Florida.
The Datacard FP65i and RP90i financial card printers have been developed specifically to address the needs of the financial and retail instant issuance markets, and further supplement the industry's most comprehensive and advanced suite of card personalization products.
The Datacard FP65i financial card printer is a cost effective option that gives financial and retail issuers the flexibility to custom print color backgrounds on blank card stock or to simply personalize a preprinted card. Its unique rear indent printing feature builds security into card programs by helping to deter card counterfeiting and meets MasterCard security character recommendations for instant issuance.
The Datacard RP90i financial card printer features retransfer printing technology that delivers vibrant, over-the-edge full-color cards. The RP90i card printer also offers security features designed for the financial market like a sturdy, locking enclosure that protects card stock, supplies, and the card reject area. Another innovative capability is the RP90i printer's security-erase function, which helps obscure confidential personalization information on the used ribbon.
"Datacard Group currently has more than 10,000 instant issuance installations across the globe," said Fred Ketcho, Regional Vice President of Americas Sales and Service for Datacard Group. "Products like the Datacard 150i Desktop Card Personalization System have been serving this industry for more than a decade. It's this kind of experience that helps us develop new products like the FP65i and the RP90i printers, to meet specific needs in this industry. No other company serving the financial and retail market can offer such a broad range of capabilities, solutions and services."
