The Fargo 55000 DTC4500e ID card printer delivers high-volume performance with maximum security. Featuring ribbon options for varying needs, dual input hoppers, and built-in password protection, the Fargo DTC4500e card printer is designed for organizations that require robust, high-volume printing on a daily basis.

  • Fast print speeds
    Need cards in a jiffy? No problem! The Fargo DTC4500e card printer prints 225 full color cards per hour and 150 full color dual-sided cards per hour - 50% faster than its predecessor.

  • Intuitive user-interface
    The DTC4500e printer features a user-friendly SmartScreen graphical display offering easy setup and printing status notifications.

  • Direct-to-card printing with built-in erase and rewrite
    The Fargo DTC4500e printer produces ID cards using dye-sublimation printing for vivid color and accurate images and thermal transfer or resin thermal transfer for sharp black text and barcodes. In addition, the Fargo DTC4500e features a built-in erase and rewrite function that is ideal for temporary ID cards such as visitor badges.

  • Ribbon options for varying needs
    Ribbons options are available depending on the needs of the organization. The EZ ribbon offers the easy-to-use disposable cartridge which is simple to load and replace. The ECO ribbon is more economical and eco-friendly. It is a refill ribbon which is to be placed into a refillable ribbon cartridge, eliminating the need to throw the plastic cartridge away with each ribbon change.

  • Standard Ethernet connectivity
    Featuring high speed USB and Ethernet ports, the Fargo DTC4500e can easily integrate anywhere you need it. With the built-in internal print server you can install the printer on your existing network (LAN) allowing remote access printing for high-volume card issuance without having the printer directly connected to your computer. For mobile printing, the printer can optionally be wifi-enabled with an HID wireless accessory.

  • QR code printing
    Frequently used in retail and loyalty card programs, QR codes can be passed through the printer as a complete image and then printed to the card.

  • Enhanced printer and card security
    The printer is designed to migrate from lower to higher security levels, offering built-in printer password protection and optional fluorescent ribbons for Ultra-Violet or UV printing. To further support the integrity of your card printing program, the Fargo DTC4500e offers optional locking card hoppers.

  • Backed by the best warranty around
    To ensure you get maximum value from the investment in your card printer, the Fargo DTC4500e is backed by a 3-year printer and printhead warranty, including one no-questions-asked printhead replacement, plus 1 year of loaner printer coverage to keep your card printing program operational.

  • Optional dual-sided printing (field-upgradeable)
    The printer can also easily be upgraded in the field to dual-sided printing. Duplex printing allows for more space for additional card holder information or security features.

  • Optional encoding
    The DTC4500e offers field-upgradable modules for encoding data for magnetic stripe, proximity, contact and/or contactless technology cards such as iCLASS for access control and other applications.

  • Optional single- or dual-sided lamination 
    Looking for an additional layer of security? Overlaminates provide tamper-proof, secure cards resistant to forgery. Furthermore, optional high-speed dual-sided simultaneous lamination can save valuable time. For an even higher level of security, the DTC4500e offers custom holographic overlaminates. Note: Lamination requires dual-sided printing.
