- Intuitive user interface
The DTC4500e single-sided 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 55600 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 55600 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.

Featuring high speed USB and Ethernet ports, the Fargo 55600 can easily integrate anywhere you need it. With the built-in internal print server you can install the Fargo 55600 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 Fargo 55600 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 55600 offers optional locking card hoppers.
