Fargo HDP5000 ID Card Printer

Part No. HDP5000
  • Versatility delivered. Complexity simplified - ID cards printed on the FARGO HDP5000 Card Printer reflect the value you place on your brand. 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.
  • High quality meets affordability - With the FARGO HDP5000, the price tag looks as great as the cards it produces. We can deliver high definition images cost-effectively, making the HDP5000 an ideal solution for a broad range of organisations.
  • Rely on it for more than good looks - The HDP5000 is exceptionally reliable, which means less printer downtime. Because the printhead never comes in contact with card surfaces or debris, it’s never damaged in the printing process. In fact, it carries a lifetime warranty.
  • Security - Cards produced by High Definition Printing are inherently more durable and secure than other types of cards. They resist wear and tear by putting a durable layer of HDP Film between the card image and the outside world. They’re also tamper-evident — if a counterfeiter tries to peel apart the layers, the image essentially destroys itself
  • The right printer for every application - High Definition Printing is the technology of choice for the best looking ID cards available, making the HDP5000 a smart choice for retail stores, recreation facilities, or any organisation whose brand image is paramount.
