Fargo 89003 HDP5000 Printer Details

Ramp up your security efforts and incorporate multiple uses for your badges (photo ID, access control, debit/credit transactions, etc.) with the Fargo 89003 HDP5000 dual-sided ID card printer. The HDP5000 creates secure, durable cards and offers several enhanced features, including a modular design, built-in Ethernet connectivity, and fast print speeds.

  • Achieve high quality results with high definition printing
    The Fargo HDP5000 dual-sided card printer produces vivid, photographic-quality images. What is great about HDP? A traditional dye sublimation printer's ribbon and cards come in direct contact with the printhead which can affect image quality and even cause damage to your printhead if you are using cards with smart chips or embedded antennas and circuits. The ribbon and cards, however, do not come in direct contact with printhead. Instead, the Fargo HDP5000 dual-sided printer prints on an HDP film that is then fused to your card via heat and pressure, producing a flawless image on any surface. It's an ideal choice for technology cards. Additionally, HDP also adds durability and protection to your cards; it acts as a 'buffer' from everyday wear and tear and is highly tamper-evident.
  • Operate and maintain the printer with ease
    The Fargo DHP5000 dual-sided printer is easy to operate and maintain. The cartridge-based cards, ribbons and laminates allow for snap-in replacement. Plus, a cleaning roller is included with each ribbon, making it easy to replace the roller each time you load a new ribbon. The SmartScreen LCD panel provides easy-to-understand status messages and instructions – no time is wasted trying to interpret the blinking lights of an LED-based card printer!
  • Print where you want
    With the Fargo HDP5000 89003's built-in Ethernet connectivity and internal print server, you can operate your card printing and encoding application safely and seamlessly over your network. It is also fitted with USB connectivity.
Customize your printer to your needs with:
    • Card encoding - Optional
      Order your HDP5000 dual-sided printer ready to go with encoding options, including magnetic stripe or smart card encoding – or add these features later as the need arises.
    • Extended warranty and printer loaner plans - Optional
      ID Zone offers extended warranty plans with satisfaction-guaranteed service handled by our in-house, knowledgeable technical support team. Our extended warranty plans include support via a toll-free number or live chat, total parts replacement plus labor, and fast turn-around on printer repairs. In the event your printer needs to be sent to us for repair, our loaner plans help ensure your card printing can continue. With printer loaner coverage, we'll send you a loaner printer to use while yours is in for repair.

    • Card printer training - Optional
      A training session with our in-house Technical Support team will get your new Fargo HDP5000 card printer up and running in no time.
