Q: Can the IDP Smart 21 print on both sides of a card?

A: The smart 21 can quickly and easily print onto one signle side of a card. A dual-sided printer is a better bet if you want to print on both sides easily.

Q: Does the IDP smart 21 include cards and a printer ribbon?

A: No, you’ll have to buy the ribbon and cards separately unless the printer is part of a bundle pack. You can choose these via the Essentials tab above before you check out.

Q: Will the IDP smart 21 fit on my desk?

A: Definitely. It’s the smallest ID card printer on the market. It measures 179mm x 169mm x 259mm and weighs 2.7kg.

Q: Can I print onto access control cards with the IDP Smart 21

A: No, the IDP Smart 21 is a direct-to-card printer. This means the chips in access control cards could damage its printhead. You’ll need a retransfer printer to print onto access control cards like HID, Paxton and more.

Q: Is the IDP Smart 21 compatible with my computer?

A: The IDP Smart 21 is designed for use with Windows operating systems.
