FARGO 5000 ID Card Printer The Fargo HDP5000 printer uses reverse transfer printing to produce high-quality images that resist tampering and last up to twice as long as normal ID card photos, with options for dual-sided printing and lamination. HDP5000 produces ID cards with the highest image quality available.

Printing a reverse image on the underside of HDP Film and then fusing the film to the card surface allows the HDP5000 to deliver an image quality that looks more like an expensive photograph than an ID badge. The HDP5000 can also print high-quality gift cards. By printing the image on the underside of the film and fusing it to the card’s surface, the printer creates an image quality that looks more like a glossy photo than an ordinary badge or gift card.

The Fargo HDP5000 printer/encoder is loaded with a variety of features! This printer is ideal for technology cards with embedded electronics due its production of cards in High Definition with the superior image quality.

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

High Definition Printing uses state of the art retransfer printer technology, and is perfect for printing the most popular cards requiring the most common technology, these include contactless as well as contact cards, smart cards, and clamshell proximity 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 fuses to the surface of your cards, conforming to ridges and indentations formed by embedded electronics, and provides an extra layer of card durability and security. It’s counterfeit proof, which means that if a counterfeiter tries to peel the film apart in order to try to alter the card, the printed image essentially destroys itself.

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