Adhesive-Backed Cards

ID Superstore carries adhesive-backed plastic cards in a variety of thickness and sizes (10 mil, 20 mil, 30 mil; CR80, CR79, CR78).†Also called sticky-back cards, adhesive-back cards come in two types: Paper-backed and Mylar-backed. They are typically used with proximity technology cards that are sometimes too thick or uneven to run through ID card printers. They are also great for gift card printing.

Adhesive Backed Cards Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What are adhesive backed cards and what are they for?

Adhesive backed cards are printable cards that has paper or mylar backing that can be peeled off. The printed PVC card can then be applied onto the surface of older technology cards (like proximity cards) that are too thick or uneven to be fed on most plastic card printers.

What are sticky back cards?

Sticky back cards are another term used to refer to adhesive back cards.

What materials are adhesive backed cards made of?

Sticky back cards come in two varieties: paper and mylar

Is there a big difference between paper-backed vs mylar-backed adhesive backed cards?

Paper-backed cards are thinner than their mylar-backed counterparts. As such, they tend to have more issues during printing, especially when the card stock quality isnít standards compliant.

Is there anything that I should know when printing on adhesive backed cards?

Adhesive back cards typically come in 10-20 mil thicknesses. Because they are slightly thinner than most plastic cards (which are usually 30 mil), sticky back cards are more prone to deformation while being printed on. As such, special care is required when printing on these cards.

What are the common issues encountered when printing on adhesive backed cards?

When too much heat from the printhead is applied to sticky back cards (as is the case when the printer driver is not set correctly), the cards deform, which then lead to the ribbon breaking.

What can I do to avoid these issues?

When printing on sticky back cards, always keep the following in mind:

  • Only use high quality adhesive backed cards from trusted sellers.
  • Do not use edge-to-edge or full bleed designs on sticky back cards as printing on the edge of the card could lead to the ribbon breaking.
  • Make sure to clean your printer and its rollers frequently as some adhesive from the card could leak and accumulate onto the printer.
