Advance to the Next Level of Security and Durability

Organizations including government agencies, corporations and education establishments face serious and escalating security threats. Issuers need next-level strategies and technology to help prevent ID card counterfeiting and fraud, better protect their people and facilities, and meet demands for faster service. The Datacard® CD800™ card printer with inline lamination module directly addresses your needs by delivering offerings, including high-performance overlays, a unique tactile impression, and a card debow feature.

Innovation that matters. A built-in tactile impression personalization feature creates an impression on the card and physically alters the substrate and overlay to help prevent counterfeiting. Choose from a set of standard designs or create a custom one specific to your organization, elevating security and your brand. Revolutionary new supplies include Datacard® DuraShield™ clear and holographic overlays that offer the best mix of security, durability and affordability. These overlays take security and durability to new levels by providing full edgeto-edge coverage that’s virtually impossible to remove intact and providing four times the durability of basic topcoats — at nearly the same price.

Configure the system and security you need. Choose from single- or dual-sided lamination, contact and contactless smart chip and magnetic stripe encoding. You can also choose the security you need with a range of high performance holographic overlays. Complete the suite with a choice of optional locks and concealed output hopper to protect the printer, card stock and supplies.

Cast Study


Since 1999, IdentiSys Inc. has been providing complete identification, security and tracking solutions, including most applications using a plastic card, ID badge, metal tag or biometric. The company is North America’s largest supplier of security, ID and card solutions to end users.

CHALLENGE: A Minnesota casino wanted to replace their player’s club reward card printers. The company’s existing printers required employees to change the card stock type each time a new rewards-level card needed to be printed.
Additionally, the printers were aging and continually breaking down, and the casino wanted to streamline its card issuance process and not be tied to using custom printer software.

SOLUTION: The casino called on Entrust Datacard partner IdentiSys Inc. to aid in their search for a new card printing solution. Together they determined that the Datacard® CD800™ printer would be the best fit for the casino’s needs.

RESULT: The casino now can issue a variety of card types without having to insert the appropriate card stock for each card printed and they do not need to rely on custom software to print their rewards cards.
