Making high-quality plastic ID cards is incredibly easy, with the Persona C30E ID Card Printer. It’s so easy to operate, there’s virtually no learning curve or maintenance. Time to change the ribbon? The ribbon cartridge contains both the printer ribbon and card-cleaning roller all in one disposable cartridge. Just slide it into the printer, and start printing. The Persona C30E prints text, logos, bar codes, signatures, and photos in full color. Add an optional magnetic stripe encoding module to increase the versatility of your card



Easy-loading, all-in-one ribbon cartridge saves time and eliminates the expense (and mess) of torn, wasted ribbons. Simply open the front panel of the C30E, slide in the ribbon cartridge, close the panel, and you’re done. There’s nothing to feed, nothing to fumble with, and nothing to tear.

Integrated card cleaning roller helps maintain print quality while protecting your C30’s print-head. It automatically removes potentially damaging dust and debris from each card before it’s printed. The cleaning roller is ingeniously integrated into the all-in-one ribbon cartridge, so you never have to mess with changing a separate cleaning roller or ribbon.

Direct-to-card printing. Dye-sublimation/resin thermal transfer technology prints sharp, clear images directly onto the surface of the plastic ID card. Dye-sublimation produces smooth, continuous-tone images that look truly photographic in more than 16.7 million colors. Resin thermal transfer uses a single-color ribbon to print sharp black text and crisp bar codes that can be read by infrared and visible-light scanners.

Simple plug-and print operation makes Persona C30E ID Card Printers as easy to use as a regular office printer.

Includes Build-A-Badge software. Entry-level, user-friendly application for designing and printing photo ID cards.
