The HDP5000 produces ID/Gift cards with the highest image quality available. The HDP5000 can create top-quality images which are much more like a glossy photo than a simple gift card or ID badge, and it does this by printing a reverse image on the HDP film underside, and then fusing it to the card surface. The Fargo HDP5000 printer/encoder is perfect for technology cards with embedded electronic capabilities. It produces cards in high definition with the highest quality image available.

HDP uses re-transfer printing technology. It is ideal for printing commonly-used technology cards such as contact and contactless smart cards and clamshell proximity cards. It is the most advanced card printing method available, using dye-sublimation to print 300 dpi images on the underside of HDP film developed by Fargo.

The HDP5000 Film fuses to the surface of your cards, adhering to ridges and indentations formed by embedded electronics, and offers an extra layer of card durability and security.

If a counterfeiter tries to peel the film apart to alter the card, the printed image is essentially destroyed.

High Definition Printing can also print right up to the edge of exposed smart card contacts. Conventional dye-sub printers always leave clear space around contact pads to avoid any damage to the print head.
