    Print superb results on a variety of card types and materials. The DTC400e single-sided printer features color printing enhancements that produce true-to-life photos, and sharp text and images. Plus, you can enjoy these great results on a wide range of card materials, including thin cards, rewritable cards, holographic foil cards, and technology cards.
  • Access additional features through the Fargo Workbench
