* Print speed will vary depending on the amount of color coverage within a card design. The above print speeds represent a full-color, full-bleed design; designs with less color coverage will print faster.
Print speed indicates an approximate batch print speed and is measured from the time a card feeds into the printer to the time it ejects from the printer. Print speeds do not include encoding time or the
time needed for the PC to process the image. Process time is dependent on the size of the file, the CPU, amount of RAM and the amount of available resources at the time of the print.

* Print speed will vary depending on the amount of color coverage within a card design. The above print speeds represent a full-color, full-bleed design; designs with less color coverage will print faster.
Print speed indicates an approximate batch print speed and is measured from the time a card feeds into the printer to the time it ejects from the printer. Print speeds do not include encoding time or the
time needed for the PC to process the image. Process time is dependent on the size of the file, the CPU, amount of RAM and the amount of available resources at the time of the print.

* Print speed will vary depending on the amount of color coverage within a card design. The above print speeds represent a full-color, full-bleed design; designs with less color coverage will print faster.
Print speed indicates an approximate batch print speed and is measured from the time a card feeds into the printer to the time it ejects from the printer. Print speeds do not include encoding time or the
time needed for the PC to process the image. Process time is dependent on the size of the file, the CPU, amount of RAM and the amount of available resources at the time of the print.
