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 prints ID cards with the best image quality on the market.

The HDP5000 can also print high-quality gift cards. 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’s perfect for technology cards with embedded electronics, and it reliably produces high-definition cards with the highest image quality available.

The HDP5000 can be upgraded easily with additional printing, laminating, and encoding modules. Fargo HDP5000 Dual-Sided Retransfer Printer #89640 | 89660 | 89680

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. 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 film fuses to the surface of the cards, including conforming to ridges and indentations created by embedded electronics, providing an extra layer of security and durability.

If a counterfeiter attempts to peel the film off to modify the card, then the printed image will destroy itself.

High Definition Printing can also print right 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. Lots of organizations are expanding their use of multi-function smart cards, including businesses and corporations, government agencies, and health care facilities.
