The Fargo HDP5000 ID card printer utilizes reverse transfer printer to produce high-quality images that resist tampering and last up to twice as long as other ID card photos. The printer has options for dual-sided printing as well as lamination. HDP5000 produces ID cards with the highest image quality available. HDP5000 is capable of creating an image quality approximating a glossy photo, by printing a reverse image on the backside of HDP film, and fusing that film right onto a plastic card surface.

The HDP5000 can also print high-quality gift cards. The HDP5000 prints a reverse image on the underside of HDP Film and then fuses the film to the card surface, producing an image quality so good, it looks like a photograph. The Fargo HDP5000 printer/encoder is jam-packed with features, and can reliably produce cards with high-definition image quality.

The HDP5000 easily upgrades to additional printing capabilities, as well as encoding and laminating modules. Fargo HDP5000 Dual-Sided Retransfer Printer #89640 | 89660 | 89680

The HDP5000 Duplex features 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.

It is supported by a lifetime warranty on the print head and a two-year warranty on the printer itself, and the Fargo HDP5000 Duplex can be operated very easily without much training, while also including cartridges which are easy-loading, ribbons and overlaminates, and a high level of reliability which will reduce total ownership cost. High Definition Printing uses retransfer printer technology and is perfect for printing common technology cards, including contact and contactless smart cards, and clamshell proximity cards. It is the most advanced method of card printing available, using dye-sublimation technology to print crisp, 300-dpi images on the underside of HDP Film developed by Fargo.

The HDP5000 Film fuses to the surface of your cards and conforms to any indentations and ridges formed by embedded electronics to create an extra layer of durability and security.

If the film is peeled apart in an attempt to alter the card, the printed image will almost completely destroy 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. Colleges, loyalty and membership programs, businesses, health care facilities, and government agencies are all expanding their use of multi-function smart cards.

On a corporate campus or university, a variety of printers/encoders can be established in a central location for high-volume production. The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex printer is the perfect choice for a lot of different scenarios.
