Our recommendation for you
The right CardPresso version for everyone
Selecting suitable software is dependent on one?s own requirements. As such, it is sufficient for a small sports club, which wants to print plastic cards as membership passes for its 40 members, to use the XXS Lite version of Card Presso. For a larger club or an event organiser, who wants to print 200-300 passes, it should be the XXS version. A minimum of the XS version is recommended for companies, who permit access to internal company databases, to use the data for card printing. If membership passes, club cards etc. are provided with RFID chips, the XL version of Card Presso is the best choice.
