It is ideal for printing the most common technology used in cards, including contact and contactless smart cards as well as clamshell proximity cards. It is the most advanced method of card printing available, using dye-sublimation technology to print crisp, 300-dpi images on the underside of HDP Film developed by Fargo.
The HDP5000 Film fuses to the surface of your printing cards and conforms to the ridges and the indentations that have been formed by embedded electronics, an extra layer of security and card durability has been developed as a result.

High Definition Printing can also 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.
