Javelin® J800i

Colours are vibrant. Images are crisp. Quality is second to none. ID cards printed on the Javelin J800i Card Printer do more than protect your organization — they reflect its pride. The Javelin J800i produces ID cards with the highest image quality available. By printing a reverse image on the underside of retransfer film, then fusing the film to the card surface, the Javelin J800i creates an image quality that looks more like a sharp glossy photo than an ordinary ID badge.

Printing on film instead of directly on the card means that the uneven surface of technology cards doesn’t compromise image quality. The Javelin J800i can print up to the edge of smart chip contacts, and over the edge of the card.


With the Javelin J800i, the price tag looks as great as the cards it produces. No other card printer delivers high definition images at this price point, making the Javelin J800i feasible for a broad range of organizations.


The Javelin J800i is exceptionally reliable, which means less printer downtime. Because the printhead never comes in contact with card surfaces or debris, it’s never damaged in the printing process. In fact, it carries a lifetime warranty.

Cards produced by retransfer printing are inherently more durable and secure than other types of cards. They resist wear and tear by putting a durable layer of retransfer film between the card image and the outside world. They’re also tamper-evident — if a counterfeiter tries to peel apart the layers, the image essentially destroys itself.
