Fargo DTC1250e dual-sided Printer

  • Go anywhere!
    The compact design allows the Fargo DTC1250e dual-sided card printer to easily accommodate any desktop.

  • Operate and maintain your printer with ease
    The DTC1250e dual-sided printer offers an intuitive interface for ease of use straight from the box. Its color-changing status buttons help you to easily identify the status of the printer, while a convenient all-in-one print ribbon and cleaning cartridge makes maintenance a breeze. Additionally, the Fargo DTC1250e printer features a built-in erase and rewrite function to help reduce the waste of short-lived, temporary ID cards, such as visitor badges.

    The DTC1250e offers ribbon options: ECO ribbons feature a reusable cartridge, so you only throw away the ribbon when it is expired. The ECO ribbons are also budget friendly because you are only replacing the ribbon. The EZ ribbons come standard, and are easy-to-use with a disposable ribbon cartridge that makes replacing the ribbon a breeze.

  • Access the technology and security your application requires
    The DTC1250e dual-sided printer produces ID cards using dye-sublimation printing for vivid color and accurate images and thermal printing for sharp black text and readable barcodes.

For added security, the DC1250e supports AES-256 data decryption.

The data encrypted image is printed on the card allowing smart phones to quickly scan the image and receive information about your organization's or business' website!
