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 prints ID cards with the best image quality on the market. 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 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 quality that looks more like a sharp glossy photo than an ordinary ID badge or Gift card. The Fargo HDP5000 printer/encoder is idea for printing cards with embedded technology and images that need to be of the highest quality.

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

The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex uses retransfer printing to produce superior dual-sided print quality, durability, reliability, and security for your badge printing. The HDP5000 has a flexible modular design with optional laminator and smart card encoding. The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex Badge Printer features Fargo’s High Definition Printing (HDP) technology and offers top-quality products at a price that is affordable for many if not most businesses and organizations.

The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex offers simple operation with minimal training, easy-loading cartridges for cards, ribbons, and over-laminates, and its reliability and durability are sure to lower your total cost of ownership. It also features a lifetime print head warranty and a two-year printer warranty. 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. 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 film fuses onto the surface of your cards, conforming to ridges and indentations, providing an extra layer of card 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 is capable of printing right up to an edge of the exposed smartcard. Conventional types of dye-sub printers need to leave a clear space around the contact pads to prevent damages from being caused to the print head. Multifunction smart cards are becoming more popular with colleges, loyalty and membership programs, businesses and corporations, health care facilities, and government agencies.

The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex Badge Printer is ideal for customization, because it can deliver so many options such as single-sided lamination or dual sided lamination, as well as various card encoding technologies. The multi-faceted encoding options give the chance to produce proximity and smart cards based on your specific and unique needs. ID badge production is no longer restricted to stand-alone stations!

A retail chain, for example, can distribute card issuance over a network to any location. On a corporate campus or university, an array of printer/encoders can be set up in a central location for high-volume production. The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex printer is the ideal choice for numerous scenarios and needs.

Its Ethernet port and internal print server allows for easy networked operations.
