HID® FARGO® Printers can meet all your ID Card requirements with a wide range of features and functions.
FARGO offers many different series and models of ID card printers that vary in capabilities and features. It is important to consider operational efficiency and select a printer that will match your volume and production demands to get the most from your printer life. Choosing the correct printer—suited for your production demand—is key when it comes to printer supplies and how frequently you will need to replace them. For larger volume demands, a model such as the HID® FARGO® HDP 8500 is a smart choice, whereas the HID® FARGO® DTC1250e model is better suited to smaller environments with lesser quantity ID card printing needs. Card design and presentation is another key factor in selecting an ID card printer. Resolution and print quality requirements should be determined, along with single- or dual-sided printing, and if cards will be laminated to add durability. You can also choose to employ smart solutions and added security to your ID cards with additional elements such as encoding, watermarks, and holographic overlaminates. The HDP5600 ID card printer and encoder is an excellent option both for design considerations with its high resolution 600 dpi printing option for crisp image and text quality, as well as for additional security and smart-card functionality with optional data encoding.
