HID Fargo C50 Card PrinterThe Fargo C50 is our most cost-effective card printer, but it doesn’t lack in quality or efficiency. The C50 has the same print quality as it’s bigger brothers (DTC1250e, DTC4250e and DTC4500e).

The main differences between the C50 and DTC1250e are the print speed (21 seconds for a full-colour card), 50 card input hopper and it doesn’t offer any other options such as double-sided, magnetic stripe encoding or ethernet… If you need any of these options, we recommend the Fargo DTC1250e Card Printer.

The C50 is perfect for those who want a single-sided ID card printer with USB connectivity. With a small footprint and ribbon cartridge load from the front makes this card printer ideal for anyone with a small budget.
