The FARGO DTC1250e is a premier printer that offers vivid colors on stunning edge to edge credentials for an amazing price. This direct-to-card dual-sided ID card printer offers the ability to deliver crisp monochrome features and vibrant colors that pop.
The FARGO DTC1250e presents a user-friendly platform that can have anyone printing stunning IDs and credentials in minutes. Each printer comes with a Built-in Swift ID badging application which starts delivering results within seconds of hitting the print button. With no need to install additional software, you can begin printing just as soon as you open the box and plug it in. You’ll also have the choice between an easy (EZ) all-in-one print and card cleaner or an eco-friendly (ECO) refill ribbon. For easy maintenance a card cleaning roller is even integrated into the ribbon cartridge.
Because productivity requires the efficient use of time, the DTC1250e can print full color cards at a rate of 16 seconds per card (YMCKO) and monochrome cards at 6 seconds per card (K).
Let’s face it, the last thing you want to find out when you purchase the DTC1250e is that it doesn’t work with your operating system. That’s why this printer comes with drivers compatible with all major operating systems to include: Windows® 7, Windows® 8 (32 bit & 64 bit), MAC OS X 10.5/10.6/10.7/10.8 and Linux.
When security matters, you can add an optional iCLASS SE® that can allow you to create,encode, and manage secure credentials with ease. This means you can design your personalized ID badges and then program them to work with your local physical access control system.
With a 3-year warranty on the printer and printhead, you’ll have the utmost confidence in the FARGO DTC1250e.
