Fargo HDP5000 Dual Sided ID Card Printer Description

The enhanced Fargo HDP5000 Dual-Sided ID Card Printer is the ideal solution to print vibrant, high-definition dual-sided cards. Discover now the affordable and versatile Fargo HDP5000.

Exceptional print quality

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.

Extremely reliable

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!

Superior print speed

The updated HDP5000 has increased card throughput with up to 90 cards per hour (YMCKK with transfer).

Highly-secure badges

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.

Affordable & easy-to-use

The HDP5000 is one of the most affordably priced reverse transfer printers on the market today. Cards and ribbons literally load in a snap via the cartridge based system. Sharp image quality and new half-panel ribbons make High Definition Printing even more economical. Fast printing, combined with a dual card input hopper for multiple card types help you fly through the biggest production jobs.

Unique warranty

The enhanced Fargo HDP5000 Dual-Sided ID Card Printer comes with an industry-leading 3-year warranty including one year of free printer loaner support!

    Would you recommend the printer: 
    How was the print quality: 
    My salesperson was knowledgeable and responsive. The price was very competitive and the entire process was easy - including set-up of the printer once I received it. The only negative as in the software tech support. It was not clear where I would get support, but after a few phone calls it was resolved. Overall, I'm very happy with the experience and the machine which I've now used for about 8 weeks.
