Frequently Asked Questions About Card Printers

Q: Do I need to buy different cards to have magnetic strips, chips or RFID cards?
A: Yes, each different type of card requires a specific blank card to suit it. The CS200 had additional modules to enable printing of these different cards. The CS320M can only print on cards with a magnetic strip. 

Q: Can you change the ribbons part way through the length of the ribbon?
A: Yes the ribbon can be changed part way through without problem.

Q: Can I re-print on the card once it's been printed on?
A: Yes, This enables you to print on one side of the card in monochrome and colour on the other. You would need to reinsert the cards. If you are printing double sided cards with the same ribbon then there is no need to do this of course but it may not be the best use of the colour ribbon if you are just printing in monochrome.

Q: Can I print on pre-printed cards?
A: Yes, you could always get cards pre-printed commercially and then print over or on the other side with your printer, depending upon the print process used when they are printed.

Q: Can the software allow me to print barcodes?
A: Yes, the CardDeseriee Software allows barcode to be printed on the cards. A variety of different types are available to choose from.

Q: Can I merge data from a database or spreadsheet?
A: Yes, Data can be merged from a variety of sources.

Q: What's the difference between a 320 and a 320M - What does the M mean?
A: The M designates that the printer has the magentic encoding option. The CS-362 is a magentic encoding version of the CS-360.
