Fargo CardJet C7 Description

The Fargo CardJet C7 printer is the choice for printing HID proximity cards. It's inkjet easy!

Flawlessly prints on HID proximity cards.In traditional dye sublimation printers, the printhead is in direct contact with the card. When using technology cards with ridges and indentations from smart chips, circuits or antennas, it can cause inconsistent printing and even damage to the printhead or the card's electronics. With the Fargo CardJet C7 printer, an HP inkjet-based print engine is used to transfer inks onto the cards. Its process involves heating the inks within an ink cartridge. This heat generates vapor bubbles that are ejected in tiny droplets through nozzles in the ink cartridge which then form your text and images on the card surface. And because CardJet ink bonds and dries instantly to CardJet cards, there's no smearing or mess.

Great quality output. Expect exceptional print quality with the Fargo CardJet C7 printer. With its unmatchable 600 DPI print resolution and quality, you can enjoy razor sharp graphics, text and barcodes time after time. Plus, the specially formulated CardJet cards stand up to abrasion, dye migration and UV fading better than traditional cards.

Reliable print engine. The Fargo CardJet C7 card printer works because it houses an ultra-dependable HP print engine. The Fargo CardJet C7 is virtually maintenance free, plus it is as easy to use as your home or office inkjet printer.

Easy consumables loading. Enjoy intuitive supplies loading with Fargo's exclusive SmartLoad card and ink cartridges. Both offer one step, error proof installations.
