Fargo HDP5000 Single Sided ID Card Printer Description

Affordability, efficiency, and quality combine to deliver the Fargo HDP5000 printer solution. Discover its potential and unleash the power of the HDP5000 within your organization.

Elite Print Quality

Lest the affordable price mislead you, take note that the HDP5000 produces some of the finest imagery available for ID card printing. This fine-tuned process takes a reverse image and prints it on the underside of HDP Film before fusing the film to the surface. The result is a vibrant image that pops. In addition the HDP5000 can print right up the edge of smart chips as well as over the edge of the card for a complete image.

Trustworthy and Reliable

The last thing you need is for your printer to go down right before a major event or a large employee orientation. That’s why the HDP5000 was engineered to ensure minimal downtime and maximum durability. Because the printhead never comes into contact with the card surface, the risk of collecting debris or inflicting damage on itself is minimized. That’s why it brings a lifetime warranty to the table with confidence.

Blazing Print Speeds

The HDP5000 has been updated which results in increased cards speeds that can print up to 150 cards per hour (YMC with transfer.)

Top-Notch Security

With the understanding that the security of your employees and intellectual property matters, the HDP5000 offers a tamper-evident layer of HDP film between the card image and the world around it. That means if someone tries to peel apart the layers for the purpose of counterfeiting, the image basically destroys itself. Meanwhile, it also protects the image from daily wear and tear.

Affordable and Efficient

As mentioned before, the affordability of the HDP5000 is perhaps the crown jewel of this design considering the quality of the final product produced. As one of the most affordably priced reverse transfer printers available, the economics make this printer an easy win for organizations with tighter budgets. Meanwhile, you’ll get sharp images and fast printing with an easy-to-use comprehensive ID card printing solution.

Peace of Mind an Innovative Warranty

Any who purchase the Fargo HDP5000 will not only get an industry-leading 3-year warranty, but you’ll get one year of free printer loaner support giving you the peace of mind that you’ll never be down a printer when you need it most.
