I've just tried to use my 9872C plotter to label magnetic cards. The result is disappointing (and could have been found much faster): the ink of all of my pens does not adhere on the cards, so the labels get smeared already when the letters are drawn. I should have tested a pen on the magnetic card first, before turning on the plotter. It was fun anyway ;-)


there are pens for paper and there are pens for transparency film.
Maybe the latter are better suited for this purpose?

I bet that the cards in questions were plotted - the character set is characteristic.
