FARGO 5000 ID Card Printer The Fargo HDP5000 printer uses reverse transfer printing, which produces a high-quality image resisting tampering and lasting up to twice as long as a normal ID card photo. It also includes options for dual-sided printing and lamination.

The key features offered by the HDP5000 Duplex include a flexible modular design that contains optional laminating and smart card encoding. The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex Badge Printer offers Fargos High Definition Printing (HDP) technology and provides the highest image quality available at reasonable prices that are affordable by a wide range of organizations.

High Definition Printing uses retransfer printer technology and is great for printing contact and contactless smart cards, clamshell proximity cards, and other common technology cards. This printing system provides the most advanced card printing methodology available, making use of dye sublimation technology in order to print ultra-crisp 300 dpi images on the reverse side of Fargo's HDP film. The HDP5000 film can be fused onto card services, conforming precisely to indentations and ridges which get formed by the electronics that are embedded, and providing even greater security and durability.

If a counterfeiter tries to peel the film apart to alter the card, the printed image is essentially destroyed. High Definition Printing can also print to the edge of exposed smart card contacts. Conventional dye-sub printers must leave clear space around contact pads to avoid print head damage.

Colleges, loyalty and membership programs, businesses, health care facilities, and government agencies are all expanding their use of multi-function smart cards. The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex Badge Printer is ideal for the above type of personalization because it features a variety of options including single- or dual-sided lamination and card encoding technologies.

Printers and encoders can even be set up on college campuses for convenient high-volume production of ID cards that students can pick up on location.

The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex printer is the ideal choice for numerous scenarios and needs.

Its Ethernet port and internal print server provide the connectivity needed for networked operations.
