The HDP5000 film can be fused onto card services, conforming precisely to indentations and ridges which get formed by the electronics that are embedded, and providing even greater security and durability.

High Definition Printing can also print right up to the edge of exposed smart card contacts. Conventional dye-sub printers must leave clear space around contact pads to avoid print head damage.
