The Persona C30e is all about simple, reliable and affordable ID card printing. It's designed for everyone who wants to make great-looking plastic ID cards - even technology cards - on a budget. For hundreds of applications including company and school IDs, access cards, membership and customer loyalty cards, the Persona C30e delivers durable plastic ID cards with printing that's more colorful than ever.
One printer, multiple choices
The Persona C30e includes a feature that puts it ahead of every other card printer in its class: versatility. The same C30e that prints and encodes your employee photo ID access cards in full color can also print contract worker IDs in black and white, rewritable visitor badges and thin, flexible loyalty cards for mailing to frequent customers. Or use economical half-panel ribbons to personalize pre-printed cards with a photo and bar code.
Cards thick or thin
The versatility of the Persona C30e also extends to card stocks. It can print on cards as thin as 9 mil and as thick as 40 mil. That includes the thin ID cards all the way up to clamshell proximity cards and smart cards with embedded electronics. Thin plastic cards are quickly gaining popularity around the world for health care, mass transit systems, highway tolls, parking, membership and customer loyalty programs. Because the cards are thin, flexible and lightweight, they're easy to mail, attach to a patient's chart or slip into a billfold. And with the Persona C30e, thin cards are as easy to produce - and as good-looking - as any other plastic ID card.
Print, erase, and repeat
Some cards, such as visitor badges or transit passes, are used for hours or days, then thrown out. The Persona C30e helps eliminate the waste of short-lived cards with the remarkable ability to erase and rewrite cards multiple times. It's all done with special heat-sensitive cards that are printed and erased by a heating element in the C30e printhead - no conventional printing ribbon is involved. Rewritable cards offer exciting ID applications such as: customer loyalty cards with updated point totals, library cards with current due dates, personalized IDs for volunteers, student IDs with schedule information and many more. And while rewritable printing is monochromatic, cards can be preprinted in full color on the reverse side so there's no compromising appearance quality. Since the printing on rewritable cards is easily changed, they should not be used for secure ID applications.
Hassle is out, easy is in
For printing conventional cards, the Persona C30e's easy-loading, all-in-one ribbon cartridge saves time and eliminates the mess and expense of torn, wasted ribbons. Simply open the front panel, slide in the ribbon cartridge, close the panel, and you're done. There's nothing to feed, nothing to fumble with, nothing to tear. And since the card cleaning roller is integrated into the ribbon cartridge, you automatically change the cleaning roller every time you change the ribbon.
Simply the best value available
The Persona C30e packs 30 years of printing technology development and experience into a simple, compact unit. It gives you outstanding performance and reliability at a much higher level than its price would suggest. When your organization needs a reliable, affordable ID card printer, the choice is simple - Persona C30e.
