Dye sublimation and thermal transfer printing are the basic printing operation techniques of all card printers. In both techniques, a ribbon is being heated as it passes under a thermal print head. The thermal transfer ribbons heat up and transfer ink onto the plastic card whereas dye sublimation ribbons heat up and undergo a chemical change process which turns the ink into a gaseous state and then permeates or saturate the plastic card. The three colors cyan, yellow, and magenta are the primary colors used in printing to produce all other colors including black. At Megakarte Smartcard Corporation, we are instrumental in offering consumable card printer ribbons in the Philippines.

All plastic card printers feature the same basic printing operations; dye sublimation and/or thermal transfer printing. Both techniques involve process and that is, a ribbon being heated as it passes under a thermal print head. The difference between the two basic printing operation is that thermal transfer ribbons heat up and transfer ink onto the plastic card, and dye sublimation ribbons heat up and undergo a chemical change process that turns the ink into a gaseous state which then permeates or saturate the plastic card. These three colors yellow, cyan, and magenta are the primary colors used in printing to produce all other colors including black.

 

The term Dye Sublimation is also referred to as Dye Diffusion that uses heat to transfer dye on to materials such as plastics, card, paper or fabric. The process of the dye sublimation of card printer is  when the Dye on the ribbon is heated by the print head it is transformed from a solid state to a gas and diffused onto the plastic card (the card is specifically coated to absorb the color dye). The hotter the elements in the print head, the more dye is converted and changed to a gas and absorbed into the plastic card.

 

At 300dpi the picture quality and continuous color tones produced by a dye sublimation printer outperform most laser or ink jet printers with higher resolutions, it can create a true photo quality. Moreover, one of the advantages of dye sublimation is the millions of colors that can be created.
