Brilliant Budget Offer – IDP Smart 51 Secure Card Printer

Plastic ID Card Printer Package created for GDPR – Keep your Data Safe – Just £699*

If you’re looking for an ID Card Printer that’s not too expensive, produces great quality plastic cards quickly and helps you meet GDPR requirements by keeping your data safe, we recommend the IDP Smart 51 Secure.

We classify the IDP Smart 51 Card Printer as a ‘mid-user’ printer, one that is easily capable of handling 5000+ cards a year.

It’s a little more expensive than an entry-level printer which you can snap up for around £500, but as you’d expect, comes with a whole load more capabilities – like speed, print quality, reliability and upgrade options; allowing you to add encoding capabilities on at a later date for example.

But what makes this bundle stand out in an increasingly crowded ID Card Printer market is its strength in GDPR compliance.

The IDP Smart 51 Secure Bundle works because it makes it very difficult for unauthorised people to access your data in the first place.

Don’t forget – when you print an ID card, membership card, loyalty card or visitor badge with an individual’s personal details or photograph, you have a responsibility for ensuring that data doesn’t become accessible.

Many people don’t realise that an imprint of the data printed into a plastic card is retained on the printer ribbon.

Card Printer Ribbon Sensitive data
Printer Ribbons retain an imprint of each individual’s data – it should be disposed off securely

If someone can access the printer ribbon, they have a record of every individual’s details that have passed through it. 

So not only is it crucially important to securely dispose of the printer ribbon when you’ve used it, you need to prevent access to it in the first place.

What comes as part of the IDP Smart 51 Secure Bundle

It comes with a Ribbon and Card Lock which means only the person with the key can unlock and use the printer, preventing bogus use.

The included Kensington Lock  chains the printer to the desk. If you have a busy reception desk, or have print cards in a public area, this stops the printer going walkabout.

Also included is:

  • Extended Rear Output Hopper
  • Easybadge Lite Card Design Software
  • YMCKO Ribbon, 300 prints
  • 100 blank cards
  • Cleaning Kit
  • 5-Year Warranty.

No other manufacturer offers a 5-Year Warranty on their plastic card printers, which shows the faith IDP Smart have in their printers.

We find the IDP Smart 51 to be fast, efficient and reliable. It’s capable of printing up to 212 single-sided colour cards per hour, or up to 720 mono cards per hour. If you regularly print ID cards, membership cards or other plastic cards, it’s hard to beat.

We are have a special ‘end of budget- year’ promotion on this model – just £699 + VAT and Delivery. This price isn’t available on our website. Call 01244 526009 to speak to our friendly customer service team.
