With a good plastic card, the business possibilities are endless.

Because of their durability and the high quality of the graphics, you can use plastic cards in a whole slew of different situations.

Like most Best PVC Cards Wholesale, they can be visual, but plastic cards can interact with machines in a lot of ways. Since they have so many uses, businesses can get advantages from printing on plastic. Plastic Can Be Eco-friendly

In addition to lasting longer, plastic cards are readily recycled instead of winding up in a landfill. There are PVC cards on the market which degrade when they come in contact with such organic materials such as composite and soil, and this can happen as quickly as within four years.

Plastic cards are actually a good thing for the environment!

The Fargo HDP5000 ID card printer uses reverse transfer printing, which produces a high-quality tamper-resistant card that lasts twice as long as a typical credit card, with options for dual-sided printing and lamination. HDP5000 produces ID cards with the highest image quality on the market today. Printing a reverse image on the underside of HDP Film and then fusing the film to the card surface allows the HDP5000 to deliver an image quality that looks more like an expensive photograph than an ID badge.

The HDP5000 produces ID/Gift cards with the highest image quality available. By printing a reverse image on the underside of HDP film, then fusing the film to the surface of the card, the printer creates an image quality that looks more like a glossy photo than an ordinary gift card. The Fargo HDP5000 printer and encoder offers a lot of great features that are perfect for technology cards with embedded electronics. It also reliably creates high-definition cards with great quality images.

The HDP5000 upgrades easily with additional printing, laminating and encoding modules. Fargo HDP5000 Dual-Sided Retransfer Printer #89640 | 89660 | 89680

The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex uses retransfer printing to produce superior dual-sided print quality, durability, reliability, and security for your badge printing. The HDP5000 Duplex features a flexible modular design with optional laminator and smart card encoding. The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex Badge Printer offers Fargos High Definition Printing (HDP) technology delivering the highest image quality that won’t cost you an arm and a leg.

The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex offers simple operation with minimal training, easy-loading cartridges for cards, ribbons, and over-laminates, and its reliability and durability are sure to lower your total cost of ownership. It also features a lifetime print head warranty and a two-year printer warranty. High Definition Printing uses retransfer printer technology and is great for printing contact and contactless smart cards, clamshell proximity cards, and other common technology cards. This is the most advanced method of card printing available, utilizing dye-sublimation technology to print 300-dpi images on the other side of HDP Film developed by Fargo.

The film fuses onto the surface of your cards, conforming to ridges and indentations, providing 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 need to leave a clear space around contacts to avoid print head damage. 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 Badge Printer is ideal for this level of customization thanks to options such as single or dual-sided lamination and card encoding technology. The assorted encoding options make it possible for you to create proximity and smart cards based on your unique needs. ID Badge production is no longer confined to stand-alone stations.

For example, a retail chain can produce cards from any of their locations. On a corporate campus or university, a variety of printers/encoders can be established in a central location for high-volume production. The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex printer is the ideal choice for countless scenarios.

Its Ethernet port and internal print server provide the connectivity needed for networked operations.
