Plastic cards - printing, personalization and accessories

Plastic cards have become common at events. Whether as name badges, admission tickets or luggage tags, with or without barcode, QR code or RFID chip - there are almost no limits.

altares is your competent partner for printing, personalisation and accessories.

Obviously we do also provide eco-friendly plastaic cards. Ask us for the different options.

The right printing technology for your requirements

We choose the ideal printing technique depending on the print run and delivery time:
Plastic cards in offset printing offer a very high quality with high resolution and brilliant colours. The cards can be laminated glossy or matt. The delivery time for offset cards is usually about 10 to 14 working days. The process is particularly suitable for larger print runs.
Digital printing is a fast way to produce high-quality plastic cards. However, the colour accuracy is not as high as in the offset printing process. The digital printing process has a relatively short delivery time of about 5 working days.
Recently, thanks to a new printing system, we have been able to produce smaller runs within a few hours. The cards usually leave our premises after 24 hours and are of a quality that is hardly inferior to offset or digital printing. Express production on the same day is also possible.


Normally plastic cards are  pre-printed in one of the above-mentioned printing processes and then personalised in a second step in monochrome (single-colour). This is mostly done in thermal printing - sometimes also multicoloured. In the retransfer process, personalization and basic printing can be done in one step.

Of course, barcodes or QR codes can also be applied or RFID cards can be programmed during personalization.

Bei der Personalisierung können selbstverständlich auch Barcodes oder QR-Codes aufgebracht oder RFID-Karten programmiert werden.
