Everything looks better with High Definition Printing™.
Colours are vibrant. Images are crisp. Quality is second to none. With the Fargo HDP5000, ID cards do more than protect your business — 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. High Definition Printing is the most advanced method of card printing available. The HDP5000’s image quality far exceeds other models, but its cost doesn’t. No other card printer delivers High Definition images at this price point, making the HDP5000 feasible for a broad range of organisations.

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 the surfaces of the cards, it’s never damaged in the printing process. 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 permanently destroys itself. 

High Definition cards deliver the highest image quality
Layered on the highest functionality. HDP Film fuses to the surface of proximity and smart cards, conforming to ridges and indentations formed by embedded electronics.

Modular design grows with your needs.
Not sure what your ID card applications will require in the future? No problem. The HDP5000 is easily upgraded to fit your needs. Start with a basic single-sided unit. Install encoding modules. Upgrade to dual-sided printing. Add lamination or simultaneous dual-sided lamination for
the ultimate in card security and durability.
