You can use plastic cards for a whole variety of different applications.

With a premium plastic card, you can print advanced graphics of superior quality on a card that can last for a lifetime.

Like most Plastic Gift Cards For My Business, they can be visual, but plastic cards can interact with machines in a lot of ways. Given this huge range of possibility, any business can find a good use for a printed plastic card. Plastic Can Be Eco-friendly

You can recycle old plastic cards into new cards to reduce waste and keep old cards out of landfills. This keeps outdated cards out of the trash. And if they do need to be thrown out, bio-degradable plastics allow these cards to decompose in a matter of years.

If you want to show that your company cares about the environment, recycled plastic business cards are the way to go.

The Fargo HDP5000 ID card printer makes use of a process called reverse transfer printing, and it makes a high-quality image which is tamper-resistant, and has twice the life of a normal ID card photo, and includes options for lamination and double-sided printing. HDP5000 produces ID cards with the best image quality in the industry. 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.

The HDP5000 produces ID/Gift cards with the most superior image quality available. When users print a reverse image on the underside of the HDP Film, after fusing the film to the card’s surface, the HDP5000 then makes the image quality appear more like a sharp glossy photo, even more so than the ordinary ID badges or Gift cards. The Fargo HDP5000 printer/encoder is feature-packed, which makes it perfect for technology cards with embedded electronics, because it reliably produces cards in High Definition with the highest image quality available.

The HDP5000 upgrades easily with additional printing, laminating, and encoding modules. Fargo HDP5000 Dual-Sided Retransfer Printer #89640 | 89660 | 89680

The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex uses retransfer printing technology—the most advanced card printer technology available—to produce superior double-sided card print quality, reliability, durability and security for your badge printing program. The HDP5000 Duplex features a flexible modular design with optional laminator and smart card encoding. The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex Badge Printer offers Fargos High Definition Printing (HDP) technology delivering the highest image quality that won’t cost you an arm and a leg.

Backed by a lifetime print head warranty and a two-year printer warranty, the Fargo HDP5000 Duplex offers simple operation with easy-to-load consumables, minimal training required, and a high reliability and durability that will result in great savings for your organization. HDP (high definition printing) uses retransfer printer technology and is great for printing the most commonly used technology cards, such as contact and contactless smart cards, as well as clamshell proximity cards. High Definition Printing is the most advanced method of card printing available, using dye-sublimation technology to print crisp, 300-dpi images on the underside of Fargo’s own HDP film.

The HDP5000 film can be fused onto card services, conforming precisely to indentations and ridges which get formed by the electronics that are embedded, and providing even greater security and durability.

If a counterfeiter attempts to peel the film off to modify the card, then the printed image will destroy itself.

The High Definition Printing can also print right up to the edge of exposed any smart card contacts. Conventional dye-sub printers must leave clear space around contact pads to avoid print head damage. Multifunction smart cards are becoming more popular with colleges, loyalty and membership programs, businesses and corporations, health care facilities, and government agencies.

The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex Badge Printer is a great choice for customizations uses for multiple purposes. Why? Because it provides a lot of different options that include, single or double-sided lamination as well as card and encoding technologies. The assorted encoding options make it possible for you to create proximity and smart cards based on your unique needs. ID Badge production is no longer limited to stand-alone stations.

For example, a retail chain can distribute card issuance over a network to multiple locations. On location for a corporation or university, an array of printers/encoders can be set up in a central location for high-volume production. The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex printer is the ideal choice for limitless scenarios.

Its Ethernet port and internal print server supply the connectivity needed for networked operations.
