How to Print with a Fluorescent Panel

Printing with a fluorescent panel allows you to add a security image onto an ID card that is only visible under ultraviolet (UV) light. It's a good way to increase an ID card's security.

”Datacard RibbonThe ribbon to use is YMCF-KT. The F panel is designed to be printed in limited areas of the card (using the custom blocking capability) to create a customized optically variable image.

The F panel should remain 0.25” in (6.35mm) from all edges of the card and from features of the card such as the magnetic stripe. F panel printing should also be 25 percent of the area of the card or less. These restrictions support good adhesion of the patch to the card.

The F panel can be printed with either topcoat or patch in the laminator.
