Product Description



The Datacard SP75 card printer delivers a powerful and unprecedented combination of advanced security and extreme reliability. Designed to protect critical assets and enhance security in addition to providing high quality output and fast, dependable operation, the SP75 card printer is well suited to accommodate the following card applications:

  • National ID
  • Ministry of Defence
  • National Government
  • Police
  • Access Control

Built on the same proven platform as Datacard SP Series card printers, the SP75 card printer is engineered for high reliability. Its design features fewer moving parts and a significantly higher duty cycle, enabling it to deliver outstanding productivity and consistent performance.

The SP75 card printer is also exceptionally versatile. It can laminate cards printed by another printer or print cards without laminating, as well as applying the same laminate to both sides or different laminates to each side of the card. As part of an integrated solution, it can issue contactless and contact smart cards, proximity cards and IDs with magnetic stripes and bar codes.
