  • High-definition retransfer printing (HDP)
    Fargo HDP printers use retransfer technology. Retransfer (also known as “reverse transfer”) is a card printing method that produces rich, vibrant, saturated color on cards. Direct-to-card printers print images directly onto the surface of the card which can affect image quality and even cause printhead damage if you are using cards that have smart chips or embedded antennas and circuits. In contrast, retransfer printers print images on retransfer film that is then fused to your card via heat and pressure, producing flawless printing on any surface.
    HDP retransfer film provides an additional benefit of adding durability and protection to your cards. It acts as a buffer from everyday wear and tear. Plus it’s highly tamper-evident; if a counterfeiter attempts to peel apart the layers, the image will be destroyed.
  • Intuitive user-interface
    The HDP5000 dual-sided printer provides easy-to-understand status messages and instructions via its SmartScreen LCD panel. There is no wasted time trying to interpret the blinking lights that LED-based card printers are fitted with.
  • Built-in Ethernet connectivity
    Your card issuance application does not have to be limited to a stand-alone badging station. Operate your card printing and encoding application safely and seamlessly over your network with the HDP5000 dual-sided printer’s built-in Ethernet connectivity and internal print server. It is additionally fitted with USB connectivity.
  • Easy to operate and maintain
    You will save money in training costs because the Fargo HDP5000 89013 printer is easy to operate and maintain. Cards, ribbons and lamination are cartridge-based, allowing for snap-in replacement and elimination of torn, wasted materials. Printer cleaning is just as worry-free. Fargo includes a new cleaning roller with each ribbon purchase, making it easy to replace the roller each time you load a new ribbon.
  • Magnetic stripe encoding
    The Fargo 89013 dual-sided ID card printer comes standard with magnetic stripe encoding. Magnetic encoding is a highly flexible solution for ID card personalization.
