Vivid, versatile cards
Print full-color or one-color cards and choose from one- or two-sided printing. All choices deliver brilliant results with dye sublimation quality and edge-to-edge coverage.

Versatile configurations
Flexible parameters and a coverless design easily adapt to multiple kiosks. Integrators can also choose from three configurations for simplex, duplex or duplex ATM-style card issuance. Use the integrator’s kit to look at detailed specifications and determine which configuration best suits your design.

Secure mounting base
The metal mounting base allows for secure attachment inside the kiosk structure.

Configurable card output locations and drop angle
Integrators can customize the output location of printed cards to match the specific application and kiosk design. The card drop angle can be easily customized by adjusting settings on the printer’s LCD panel.

Hot swappable printer feature
To keep kiosks up and running and minimize downtime, the SP55k printer can be swapped into a kiosk without reinstalling the driver.

Card reject tray
A separate area for rejected cards helps increase security and maintain quality control. (Available with one-sided printing only.)
