The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex Badge Printer features Fargo’s High Definition Printing (HDP) technology and offers top-quality products at a price that is affordable for many if not most businesses and organizations.

It is supported by a lifetime warranty on the print head and a two-year warranty on the printer itself, and the Fargo HDP5000 Duplex can be operated very easily without much training, while also including cartridges which are easy-loading, ribbons and overlaminates, and a high level of reliability which will reduce total ownership cost. High Definition Printing uses cutting-edge retransfer printer technology, perfect for printing common technology cards, such as contact and contactless smart cards and clamshell proximity cards. It is the most advanced method of card printing available, using dye sublimation technology to print crisp, 300-dpi images on the underside of the film created by Fargo.

The HDP5000 Film adheres to the surface of the cards and conforms to any ridges or indentations formed by embedded electronics and adds an extra layer of strength and security.

If any counterfeiter were to attempt to peel the film apart and alter the card, the printed image on the card would essentially cause itself to be destroyed.

High Definition Printing can also print up to the edges of exposed smart card contacts. Conventional dye-sub printers must leave clear space around contact pads to avoid print head damage. Colleges, loyalty and membership programs, businesses and corporations, health care facilities and government agencies are all expanding their use of multi-function smart cards.
