Frequently Asked Questions...
How much does it cost to produce a full
colour plastic card?
- It does vary by Printer, but it is worked out the following way,
taking a P330i for example:
A Full Colour Ribbon is £35.00+VAT, and will print 200 cards, so
200 = 17.5p
100 Plain White Plastic Cards is £7.00+VAT, so £7.00 ¸
100 = 7p
the two together, and you have your total cost of 24.5p per card.
What software do I need to produce plastic
- We would recommend our CardFive Vision Classic as a minimum.
This software is very easy to use with a built in template for
designing your card. Other advanced software is available
depending on whether you intend top use a database or networking
- further details on request.
Does the machine need regular servicing?
- The answer is No. Our printers are designed to give years
of trouble-free service.
We would recommend however that you purchase with your machine
a Cleaning Kit .
enable you to clean the print heads etc on the machine.
Cleaning your machine
this way will minimise rejects.
What items do I require as a minimum to
- Please refer to our package contents list -
How much should I charge per card once I
- This is entirely up to you but our existing customers
are happily charging 60p per card on quantities of 250 +
and £1.20 per card on smaller quantities. Remember, you
will not be charging your customers for any printing
plates as our system works direct from your PC. For
customers who require 'cheaper' plastic cards, you can
always offer single colour printing and those who require
something more up-market can always be offered full colour
