About the Fargo HDP5000 Dual-Sided ID Card Printer:

The Fargo HDP5000 Dual-Sided ID Card Printer is the ideal solution to print vibrant, high-definition cards. The enhanced HDP5000 produces ID 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 superb image quality. The HDP5000 can print up to the edge of smart chip contacts, and over the edge of the card.

The HDP5000 is exceptionally reliable, which means less printer downtime. The printhead never comes in contact with card surfaces or debris so it never gets damaged in the printing process. In fact, it carries a lifetime warranty! The enhanced Fargo HDP5000 ID Card Printer comes with an industry-leading 3-year warranty including one year of free printer loaner support!

Cards 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.

Expand or reduce production instantly with encoding and lamination modules. For greater system capacity, an optional dual card input hopper lets you easily manage multiple card types and higher card volumes.
