High Definition Printing uses cutting-edge retransfer printer technology, perfect for printing common technology cards, such as contact and contactless smart cards and clamshell proximity cards. This is the most advanced method of card printing available, using dye-sublimation technology to print sharp, 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. In the case of a counterfeiter trying to peel the film apart in an attempt to alter the card, the printed image will almost completely destroy itself. High Definition Printing will print right up to the edge of exposed smart card contacts.

Traditional dye-sub printers must leave clear space around contact pads to avoid print head damage. Health care facilities, businesses and corporations, loyalty and membership programs, colleges, and government agencies are all increasing their use of multifunction smart cards. The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex Badge Printer is ideal for this type of customization because of the many options provided, including single- or dual-sided lamination and card encoding technologies.
