If a chosen card material is of bad quality, this affect the color transfer on the card hence damaging your ID card or other type of card printing.

Colors of the PVC – most of our designs have white background or color is transferred on the white surface. Any slight difference in the white color make your design look dull or more darker, an opt white color is always necessary to make sure the your design looks elegant after printing.

Material evenness – with Chipped cards, Proximity cards, Mifare cards or other NFC cards, plastic material should be evenly distributed otherwise the chip might be damaged during the printing due exposure to heat or printing element.

Smooth/Even surface and corners – Maintaining the uniformity over the surface and edges of the card is important if and otherwise, an uneven surface poses problem with printing as well as it might even damage the printing element (print head) which costs more than half price of the printer to replace it.
