HDP5000 produces ID cards with the best image quality in the industry.

By printing a reverse image on the underside of HDP Film and fusing the film to the card surface, the HDP5000 creates an image quality that resembles a sharp, glossy photograph than what is usually on an ID or gift card.

The HDP5000 Duplex features a flexible modular design with optional laminator and smart card encoding.

Backed by a lifetime print head warranty and a two-year printer warranty, the Fargo HDP5000 Duplex offers simple operation with minimal training, easy-loading cartridges for cards, ribbons and over-laminates, and a high reliability and durability that will lower your total cost of ownership. HDP uses re-transfer printing technology. It is ideal for printing commonly-used 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 fuses to the surface of your cards, adhering to ridges and indentations formed by embedded electronics, and offers an extra layer of card durability and security.

If a counterfeiter tries to peel the film apart in an attempt to alter the card, the printed image essentially destroys itself.

High Definition Printing can also print right up to the edge of exposed smart card contacts. Conventional dye-sub printers always leave clear space around contact pads to avoid any damage to the print head. Health care facilities, businesses and corporations, loyalty and membership programs, colleges, and government agencies are all increasing their use of multifunction smart cards.

The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex printer is perfect for this kind of printing and customization because of the many options available on the printer, including single- or dual-sided lamination and card encoding technologies.
