Versatility meets simplicity
Colors are vibrant. Images are crisp. Quality is second to none. ID cards printed on FARGO HDP5000 Card Printer/Encoders do more than protect your organization — they reflect its pride. HDP5000 produces ID cards with the highest image quality available. By printing a reverse image on the underside of HDP® Film, then fusing the film to the card surface, the HDP5000 creates an image quality that looks more like a sharp glossy photo than an ordinary ID badge.
Printing on film instead of directly on the card means that the uneven surface of technology cards doesn’t compromise image quality. The HDP5000 can print up to the edge of smart chip contacts, and over the edge of the card.
High-quality images without the high price tag
With the FARGO HDP5000, the price tag looks as great as the cards it produces. No other card printer delivers High Definition images at this price point, making the HDP5000 feasible for a broad range of organizations.
Rely on it for more than good looks
The HDP5000 is exceptionally reliable, which means less printer downtime. Because the printhead never comes in contact with card surfaces or debris, it’s never damaged in the printing process. In fact, it carries a lifetime warranty.
Cards produced by High Definition Printing are inherently more durable and secure than other types of cards. They resist wear and tear by putting a durable layer of HDP Film between the card image and the outside world. They’re also tamper-evident — if a counterfeiter tries to peel apart the layers, the image essentially destroys itself.
Improvements you’ll see in every card
FARGO introduced High Definition Printing in 1999, and we’ve been advancing the technology ever since. The HDP5000 is the most affordably priced HDP model ever. It’s also the fastest and most efficient, with improvements at every level. Simpler operation requires only minimal training. Cards, ribbons and overlaminates literally load in a snap via the cartridge-based system. Sharper image quality and new HDP materials deliver more impressive cards at a lower cost per card. And faster printing helps you fly through the biggest production jobs.
First in Class Support Application.
The included FARGO Workbench diagnostic utility facilitates printer maintenance. Its Color Assist tool matches spot colors, ensuring accurate prints of graphics such as company logos.
Add dual-sided durability and security — fast
Applying a holographic overlaminate or holographic HDP Film to the front of an ID card improves its durability and security. An overlaminate on both sides doubles the protection. The HDP5000 laminates both sides of a card simultaneously in one efficient pass.Since the lamination module needs no card flipper, it doesn’t waste time by turning a card over and laminating it again. Saving a few seconds per card may not sound like much, but multiplied by a 5,000- or 10,000-card production run, the savings are substantial.
The right printer for every application
High Definition Printing is the latest technology for the best looking ID cards available, making the HDP5000 a smart choice for retail stores, recreation facilities, or any organization whose brand image is paramount.
It’s also right for organizations that demand more functionality from their ID cards. Colleges, loyalty and membership programs, businesses and corporations, health care facilities and government agencies are all expanding their use of multifunction smart cards. Encoding options allow configuration of the HDP5000 to produce proximity and smart cards according to specific needs. And print quality is never sacrificed; the High Definition Printing process fuses the HDP Film to the card surface, conforming to ridges and indentations of the embedded electronics in smart and prox cards so images are always sharp.
Produce High Definition cards anywhere
Card production is no longer limited to standalone badging stations. A retail chain, for example, can distribute card issuance over a network to any location. On a corporate campus or university, an array of printer/encoders can be set up in a central location for high-volume production. The HDP5000 is the ideal choice for countless scenarios. Its Ethernet port and internal print server provide the connectivity needed for networked operations.
Take your card printing higher
Take your card printing higher. Only one card printer offers ultimate image quality and printer reliability, affordably. For every need — from great-looking photo ID cards to multifunctional, high-security applications — the HDP5000 does the job beautifully
