ID card printers like (Evolis, Zebra Technologies, Magicard, HID-Fargo, Team Nisca, Entrust, and others) are using CMYK ribbons to print in full color; make sure the images you will print are in high resolution with CMYK color setting so that the color doesn't shift. 300 dpi is also highly recommended, so your images and text come out sharp and clean. And at last, save your image in a format with no compression like TIFF or PNG.
For maximum printing quality, always use a vector ID card software like IDpack in the Cloud. By using the SVG technology, IDC will provide the best resolution every time using vectorial graphics. The quality will always be perfect whether you print in 300 or 600 DPI.
