Advancing The Technology Since 1999

Fargo introduced High Definition Printing™ (HDP®) technology in 1999, and has been advancing the technology ever since. The HDP5000 produces High Definition cards that wow you with outstanding print quality over embedded electronics, plus high durability and security. Applying a holographic overlaminate or holographic HDP Film to the front of an ID card improves its durability and stability. An overlaminate on both sides doubles that protection. The HDP5000 laminates both sides of a card simultaneously in one efficient pass.

The HDP5000 printer/encoder the fastest, most efficient HDP model ever, with improvements at every level. Simpler operation requires only minimal training. Cards, ribbons and overlaminates now come in cartridges that literally load in a snap. Sharper image quality and new HDP materials deliver more impressive cards at a lower cost per card. And faster printing helps you fly through the biggest production jobs.

With built-in Ethernet connectivity, the HDP5000 also has USB 2.0 connectivity. Your card printing and encoding operations can be operated seamlessly over your local network.

The Beauty of High Definition Printing Runs Deep


ID cards should reflect your organization’s pride, and the HDP5000 produces ID cards with the highest image quality available – High Definition cards. By printing a reverse image on the underside of HDP film, then fusing the film to the card surface, the HDP5000 creates an image quality that looks more like a crisp glossy photo than an ordinary ID badge.
The High Definition cards produced on the HDP5000 are inherently more durable and secure than other types of cards. They resist wear and tear by putting a durable layer of HDP Film between the card image and the outside world. They’re also tamper-evident.
If a counterfeiter tried to peel apart the layers, the image essentially destroys itself.
