Fargo Card Printers

Fargo by HID offers reliable card printers with direct-to-card print capabilities in a range of prices – from the affordable DTC1500xe Printer to the high-security DTC4500e, with the mid-range DTC4250e in between. For even more security and power, the Fargo HDP5000 is a high-definition retransfer printer.

Fargo printing machines will have a variety of ID card options available to their card holders.

  • High Coercivity (HiCo) Magnetic Stripe

    – These more secure magnetic stripes store more information than standard, Low Coercivity (LoCo) stripes, permitting the exchange of information. The stronger magnetic stripe can withstand more wear and tear better and are less likely to be impacted by contact with magnets.

  • Smart Chip/Smart Card

    – Smart chip cards look like normal ID cards, except they have a small chip embedded in the front. This type of encoding provides the most flexibility with the amount and type of data stored on the card. These cards are great for data information and storage and multifunctional ID programs.

  • RFID/Contactless Smart Card

    – These cards work much like smart cards, except they communicate information through an antenna embedded in the card, and do not require contact with a reader to exchange relevant passenger information.
