The HDP5000 produces cards with the highest image quality available.

By printing the image on the underside of the film and fusing it to the card’s surface, the printer creates an image quality that looks more like a glossy photo than an ordinary badge or gift card.

High Definition Printing makes use of re-transfer print technology, and provides a perfect solution for printing all the most commonly used cards, for instance contact smartcards, contactless smartcards, and clamshell proximity cards. It is the most advanced technology available for card printing, using dye sublimation to produce 300 dpi images on the underside of the film developed by Fargo. The HDP5000 Film fuses to the surface of your cards, conforms to ridges and indentations formed by embedded electronics, and provides 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 up to the edges of exposed smart card contacts. Conventional dye sublimation printers must leave clear space around contact pads to avoid print head damage.

Many organizations have expanded their use of multi-functioning smart carts including Healthcare facilities, corporations and small businesses, and government agencies.
