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 makes ID cards with the highest possible image quality that is 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 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 packed with innovative features and is perfect for technology cards with embedded electronics. This printer produces cards with the best image quality available.

It's very easy to upgrade the HDP5000 with modules for additional printing, encoding, and laminating.

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 Duplex features a flexible modular design with options for a 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. 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 ideal for printing the most commonly used technology cards, including contact and contactless smart cards, and clamshell proximity cards. This happens to be one of the most advanced methods of car printing available, the use of advanced dye-sublimation technology has been able to produce crisp print jobs, with 300-dpi images on the underside of HDP Films that are 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 a counterfeiter tries to peel the film apart to alter the card, the printed image is essentially destroyed. High Definition Printing is capable of printing right up to an edge of the exposed smartcard. Conventional dye-sub printers always leave clear space around contact pads to avoid any damage to the print head.

Colleges, loyalty and membership programs, businesses and corporations, health care facilities and government agencies are all expanding their use of multi-function smart cards. The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex printer is perfect for this kind of printing and customization because of the many options available on the printer, including single- or dual-sided lamination and card encoding technologies. The multi-faceted encoding options will help you produce proximity cards and smart cards based on your business’s specific needs.

ID Badge production is now no longer just limited to the stand-alone type of stations. For example, a retail chain store can now distribute and issue cards through a network to any location necessary. On a university or a corporate campus, it's possible to set up an array of printer/encoders at some centralized location in order to achieve high volume production.

You can apply the Fargo HDP5000 Duplex printer’s capabilities to countless scenarios.
