This happens to be one of the most advanced methods of car printing available, the use of advanced dye-sublimation technology has been able to produce crisp print jobs, with 300-dpi images on the underside of HDP Films that are developed by Fargo. The HDP5000 Film fuses to the surface of your cards, conforming to ridges and indentations formed by embedded electronics, and provides an extra layer of card durability and security.

In the case of a counterfeiter trying to peel the film apart in an attempt to alter the card, the printed image will almost completely destroy itself. High Definition Printing can also print right up to the edge of exposed smart card contacts. Traditional dye-sub printers must leave clear space around contact pads to avoid print head damage.

Producing ID badges is no longer confined to standalone stations. For example, a retail chain store can now distribute and issue cards through a network to any location necessary. On a university or a corporate campus, it's possible to set up an array of printer/encoders at some centralized location in order to achieve high volume production.

The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex printer is perfect for numerous scenarios.
