Magnetic Stripe Encoding on ID Cards

Encoding information within magnetic stripes is the oldest and most widely used way to store data on plastic cards. Information - encoded as a series of 1s and 0s - is stored by altering the polarity of microscopic particles embedded within a strip of resin. Magnetizing these particles and printing images onto the rest of the plastic card's blank surface is usually accomplished in the same, single pass of the blank ID card through an ID card printer. Card encoding (and card re-encoding) can also be accomplished by using a separate card encoder. The encoded information is accessed by passing the cards' stripes through specialized readers which detect the magnetized particles' polarities.
