Stuttgart, Germany, March 26, 2009 – Digital Identification Solutions, the world leader in retransfer card printing solutions, announced that the company had been chosen as the personalization solution provider for the Angola National ID Card Program.

Secure custom encoded optical memory laser cards will be personalized via retransfer printing technology and additionally protected with an inline clear patch lamination.

We are proud to continue our long-lasting and successful business cooperation with this prestigious joint project”, comments Uwe Ludwig, Vice President of Sales, EMEA, at LaserCard Corporation, Ratingen, Germany. “It will be extremely helpful for LaserCard in this project to have access to the Digital Identification Solutions Branch in Dubai, which did not only provide the required hardware, drivers and consumables, but will also be the second level technical support center within the region”, Ludwig added.
