PVC stands for polyvinyl chloride, an inexpensive plastic material that standard Id cards are made of. It is the generally accepted ID card material for most printing needs. Specifically, if you have a dye sublimation ID card printer, you’ll get the best quality and professional-looking results by using PVC cards for your identification needs.
The drawback with PVC cards is that they don’t stand up well to heat. If your security ID cards are going to be exposed to high temperatures such as when laminating your cards or if you’re using a retransfer printer, PVC cards will warp or bend slightly or even crack.
