Card Proofing Program:
To ensure reliable card printing and minimize installation time, let us test your card stock free of charge.

We will determine the printer dwell time and temperature settings needed to produce the best possible image for your particular printer and card design. We will also verify that your card composition is receptive to your printer's printing capabilities. The settings we give you should be considered the recommended starting point when setting up a printer to print cards.
