The Fargo HDP5000 ID card printer uses reverse transfer printing, which produces a high-quality image that resists tampering and lasts up to twice as long as a normal ID card photo, with options for dual-sided printing & lamination. HDP5000 makes ID cards with the highest possible image quality that is 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 produces ID/Gift cards with the highest image quality available. By printing a reverse image on the underside of HDP Film, then fusing the film to the card surface, the HDP5000 creates an image that has the quality of a sharp glossy photo rather than a typical, 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 can be upgraded easily with additional printing, laminating, and encoding modules. Fargo HDP5000 Dual-Sided Retransfer Printer #89640 | 89660 | 89680

The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex uses cutting-edge retransfer printing technology to produce unparalleled-quality double-sided card prints that are reliable, durable, and secure. The HDP5000 Duplex features a flexible modular design with optional laminator and smart card encoding. The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex Badge Printer offers Fargo’s High Definition Printing (HDP) technology to deliver the highest quality images at a price that lots of organizations can afford.

Backed by a lifetime print head warranty and a two-year printer warranty, the Fargo HDP5000 Duplex offers simple operation with minimal training, easy-loading cartridges for cards, ribbons and over-laminates, and a high reliability and durability that will lower your total cost of ownership. 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. It is the most advanced card printing method available, using dye-sublimation to print 300 dpi images on the underside of HDP film developed by Fargo.

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.

If a counterfeiter tries to peel the film apart in an attempt to alter the card, the printed image is essentially destroyed along with any chance of pirating the card.

High Definition Printing can also print to the edge of exposed smart card contacts. Conventional dye-sub printers need to leave a clear space around contacts to avoid print head damage. Colleges, loyalty and membership programs, businesses and corporations, health care facilities and government agencies are all increasing their use of multifunction smart cards.

The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex Badge Printer is ideal for this type of customization because it offers so many options including single- or dual-sided lamination and card encoding technologies. The assorted encoding options make it possible for you to create proximity and smart cards based on your unique needs. ID Badge production is no longer limited to stand-alone stations.

It is now possible for a retail chain to distribute cards to any location over a network.
