Owning Your Own Business Card Printing Machine

June 05, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 430

The benefits of owning your own business card printing machine can be quite considerable for any company, large or small. Ownership of one of these devices, however, can be especially advantageous for a business that employs a large number of staff and perhaps receives a lot of visitors to its premises.

The use of these cards dates back to the 17th century. At that time, the French employed them as visiting cards. Larger than today, they were used among the aristocracy largely to confirm status while, in England, the first so-called tradecards appeared bearing advertising and maps.

Without the card printing machines of today, these early cards had to be produced using woodcut or letterpress techniques but this did not prevent their popularity increasing. The playing card-sized visiting cards favoured by the French, later became the precursors of the modern greetings card.

In the US, both visiting or calling cards and those devoted to trading were in widespread use by the early 19th century although still without the benefit of the quick and simple production facilities offered by a modern business card printing machine.

Indeed, speed and convenience is the hallmark of these compact and powerful units. Simple to operate and yet exceptionally versatile in their capabilities, they are employed by professional print shops, by online service providers and are now being purchased in significant numbers by a wide variety of businesses who have embraced the many benefits of producing their cards in-house.

Apart from the long-term effect of reducing costs, these units are easily adapted to handle a single print or a run of hundreds. Business card printing machines today are often designed to print on surfaces other than card and the plastic, PVC, is now widely used for a variety of purposes that far exceed the original ideas of advertising and aiding introductions.

Access control has become a common application for printed plastic cards that, in their simplest form, may just carry a photograph of the holder and a barcode that, if recognised by the reading device, will unlock a door or release a turnstile to admit the card holder.

A quality printing machine is designed to interface with a PC and a dedicated software package. The software is able to assist the operator to create design templates for various cards or to make available a selection of ready-prepared templates for those who may be less creative.

Various accessories may be added to extend functionality such as the ability to embed encoded data on a chip or magnetic stripe. Demand for PVC cards for all purposes is increasing, prompting more companies to invest in business card printing machines.

Cardtech can offer you the quality business card printing machine that you require to print quality business cards in a cost-effective manner.
