FARGO CARD PRINTER

Fargo PVC ID Card Printers

They can be visual like most Plastic Card, but they can interact with machines in many ways. Fargo PVC ID card printers range from entry-level to high-end, with several different options available at each level. Fargo printers are utilized by a number of government offices, universities, and corporations, most commonly used in their card printing offices.

These printers are capable of handling a broad range of card types including photo IDs, access cards, visitor badges, student payment system cards and more. Plastic Card ID is proud to offer several printers from the Fargo "direct-to-card" line.

While capabilities vary from model to model, each Fargo printer provides excellent image quality, machine durability, and a manufacturer’s warranty that protects you in the unlikely event of a breakdown.

We also offer a number of Fargo printer supplies, including printer ribbons, laminate ribbons and cleaning kits.

FARGO 5000 ID Card Printer The Fargo HDP5000 ID card printer uses reverse transfer printing, producing a top-quality image that resists tampering and lasts twice as long as a normal ID card photo. This printer also features options for dual-sided printing & lamination. HDP5000 produces ID cards with the finest image quality on the market.

By printing a reverse image on the underside of HDP Film and fusing the film to the card surface, the HDP5000 can create an image that looks more like a glossy high-quality photograph than what you would normally see on an ID card. The HDP5000 produces ID/Gift cards with the highest image quality on the market today. The HDP5000 can create top-quality images which are much more like a glossy photo than a simple gift card or ID badge, and it does this by printing a reverse image on the HDP film underside, and then fusing it to the card surface.

The Fargo HDP5000 printer/encoder is feature-packed, it is perfect for technology cards with embedded electronics, it produces cards in High Definition with the highest image quality available without fail.

The HDP5000 upgrades easily with additional printing, laminating and encoding modules.

Fargo HDP5000 Dual-Sided Retransfer Printer

#89640 | 89660 | 89680 The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex uses retransfer printing technology—the most advanced card printer technology available—to produce superior double-sided card print quality, reliability, durability and security for your badge printing program. The HDP5000 has a flexible modular design with optional laminator and smart card encoding.

The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex Badge Printer offers Fargos High Definition Printing (HDP) technology delivering the highest image quality that won’t cost you an arm and a leg. Backed by a lifetime print head warranty and a two-year printer warranty, with the Fargo HDP5000 Duplex, you can be up and running with minimal training, enjoy easy-loading cartridges for cards, ribbons and over-laminates, and own a system with high reliability and durability that pays for itself over time. High-definition printing uses re-transfer printer technology. It is ideal for printing the most common technology used in cards, including contact and contactless smart cards as well as clamshell proximity cards.

This is the most advanced method of card printing available, using dye-sublimation technology to print sharp, 300-dpi images on the underside of HDP Film developed by Fargo. The HDP5000 Film fuses to the surface of your cards, conforms to ridges and indentations formed by embedded electronics, and provides an extra layer of card durability and security. If any counterfeiter were to attempt to peel the film apart and alter the card, the printed image on the card would essentially cause itself to be destroyed.

High Definition Printing can also print up to the edges of exposed smart card contacts. Conventional dye-sub printers always leave clear space around contact pads to avoid any damage to the print head. Many organizations are expanding their use of multi-function smartcards, for instance loyalty and membership programs, universities, corporations, government agencies, and healthcare facilities.

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. The multi-faceted encoding options give the chance to produce proximity and smart cards based on your specific and unique needs. ID badge production is no longer restricted to stand-alone stations!

For example, a retail chain can distribute card issuance over a network to any location. An array of printers and encoders can be set up in a central location for high-volume production. The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex printer is perfect for numerous scenarios.

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