The Fargo 91860 DTC550 dual-sided ID card printer with lamination is a flexible printer that is ideal for high-volume card printing applications. Available in many configurations, the Fargo DTC550 ID card printer will meet both your current and future needs.

  • Operate and maintain your printer with ease
    The Fargo DTC550 dual-sided card printer with lamination features an easy-to-use display to alert you with printer and material status messages.
  • Access additional features through the Fargo Workbench
    The Fargo DTC550 dual-sided printer features the exclusive Fargo Workbench printer utility, a printer security, diagnostics, and firmware upgrades tool. This allows you to:
    • Add password-controlled access
    • Use a library of card samples
    • Gain access to key printer and ribbon information (e.g., printer serial number, listing of installed options, ribbon type, ribbon amount used, etc.)
    • Run various troubleshooting and diagnostics tools and more!
  • Print different card stocks
    The DTC550 91860 printer's included dual-card hopper allows you to print on two different card stocks or extend production on one stock. An optional hopper lock helps prevents theft of blank cards.

Customize your printer to your needs with:

  • Card encoding - Optional
    The Fargo 91860 offers magnetic stripe encoding and an e-card docking station options. (Add this feature to this printer within the Options tab.)
  • Ethernet - Optional
    The optional Ethernet port and internal print server will allow your IT staff to install your Fargo 91860 anywhere on a LAN. (Add this feature to your printer within the Options tab.)
  • 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. (Select an extended warranty with or without loaner coverage in the Options tab.)
