With nearly 50 years of innovation in identity security and quality
assurance, and several patents currently pending directed towards
drop-on-demand (DoD) applications, Entrust Datacard continues to provide
innovative solutions to its diverse customer base. This newly granted
patent is generally directed towards card processing mechanisms and
methods that include a return card travel path that is separate from the
primary card travel path, which allows a card to be reintroduced back
onto the primary card travel path and transported through a card
processing station (for example, a printing mechanism) a second time.

"We strive to bring our customers the most forward thinking technologies
possible and this newly issued patent is evidence of our continued
commitment to innovation in this space," said Dan Good, vice president,
bureau solutions for Entrust Datacard. "For nearly 50 years, we've kept
our finger on the pulse of innovation in the security and card
personalization space, continuously investing in new technologies that
have allowed us to provide the most cutting edge solutions to our
customers. We will continue to invest in and create solutions that not
only meet our customers' needs, but exceed their expectations."

Since 1969, Entrust Datacard has been granted more than 200 U.S. patents
and numerous additional patents in Europe and China. Realizing the value
patented techniques, systems and mechanisms bring to their diverse
customer base of financial, government and digital businesses around the
world, Entrust Datacard continues to innovate and apply for additional
patents each year.
