Several options are available to convert your Fargo HDP5600 ID Card Printer into a powerful encoding machine.

The easiest – and most inexpensive – way to add data is through barcodes. No need for a specific encoder: all you need to do is add a barcode in the design of your cards through your software.

If you need to print and encode cards with a magnetic stripe, choose a Fargo HDP5600 ID Card Printer with a magnetic encoder. Widely used in access control and time and attendance, magnetic cards are an affordable choice for your badges.

If you need more secure badges, opt for a Fargo HDP5600 ID Card Printer with smart card encoder. With contact and contactless smart cards, the data is securely encoded into an embedded chip. To store data and to be read, a contact smart card must be inserted into a reader, while contactless smart cards only need to be waved within range of a reader. Perfect for student IDs, healthcare cards, loyalty cards or government IDs, smart cards can now easily be created with a Fargo HDP5600 ID Card Printer with smart-card encoder.

The Fargo HDP5600 ID Card Printer is available with a single or dual-sided lamination module to add an extra layer of protection to your printed cards.

Fargo ID card printers can apply different types of laminates:

  1. Clear laminates: a clear protective layer of 0.6 or 1.0 mil is applied to your printed cards.
  2. Standard holographic laminates: choose laminates with holograms for added security as holograms are hard to duplicate.
  3. Custom holographic laminates: instead of opting for a standard hologram that another company may also use, go for your own custom design. This option guarantees maximum protection to your cards.

Laminates can be patches or overlay. Patch laminates leave an unprotected border around the edge of your cards while overlay laminates cover the entire surface of your cards.

The Fargo HDP5600 ID Card Printer perfectly adapts to your needs thanks to a number of optional modules:

  1. Dual-sided printing module: add more information to your cards by turning your printer into a dual-sided system.
  2. Encoding modules: add data to magnetic stripe, proximity, or contactless cards, for access control or secure multi-feature badges.
  3. Single or dual-sided card lamination modules: apply overlaminates to your cards to increase card durability and reduce the risk of counterfeiting and tampering. The Fargo HDP5600 ID Card Printer can laminate both sides of your cards simultaneously for maximum efficiency.
