The HID Fargo INK1000XE Inkjet ID card printer is the next generation in desktop card printing, bringing simplicity and affordability to your fingertips while printing high-quality ID badges. This powerful yet easy-to-use INK1000XE is similar to a traditional inkjet at-home printer that prints ID cards with a snap-in ink cartridge. This reliable and straightforward printer is less expensive than many other ID card printers and is ideal for small-to-medium sized businesses. The high-resolution, ink-jet print technology features a smaller footprint, edge-to-edge printing, a USB 2.0 interface and printing speeds up to 100 cards per hour. The INK1000XE inkjet printer brings affordability to ID card printing making it more accessible to smaller organizations or cost-conscious organizations without sacrificing quality and reliability.

Product Features

  • High-Quality and High-Definition
    The Fargo INK1000XE inkjet printer is the next revolution for ID card printing. Featuring HID's exclusive true-to-edge technology, while eliminating the hassle of print ribbons and specialized ID cards. The drop-on-demand (DOD) ink is compatible with off-the-shelf industry first PVC cards, so no need to worry about specialized ID cards. The Fargo INK1000XE has been engineered to be suitable for an ordinary CR8030 PVC card, a hassle-free solution. The snap-in ink cartridge makes for an effortless installation and contains specially formulated ink that naturally adheres to standard PVC cards. No special card media required!
  • Smaller footprint & Intuitive Operation
    Bring your ID card designs to life with radiant 600 dpi x 1200 dpi resolution at a fraction of the cost compared to ribbon-based ID card printers. Imagery is sharp and luminous along with crisp text and barcodes. With the Ink1000XE’s full card coverage design, you can eliminate those white border edges left behind by standard Direct-to-card printers. With its small footprint, the same-side input and output hopper make loading and retrieving cards easy. The INK1000XE perfect for any office environment, not to mention its compact size. Perfect for keeping your workspace orderly and uncluttered. An underside compartment for the power supply and excess cord storage eliminate the problem of tangled cords and freeing up valuable workspace.
  • Ink Features and Benefits
    With the HID Fargo INK1000XE, a single cartridge contains YMC (Yellow, Magenta and Cyan) for printing full color card designs and a blend of YMC is used to create a composite black. The inkjet black produces scannable barcodes and its high resolution is perfect for printing even complex characters, such as Kanji, Arabic and Cyrillic for easy readability.
  • Sustainable and Environmentally Friendly
    Some card designs do not require the full use of a direct-to-card printer ribbon leaving entire sets of ribbon panels unused and wasted. With an Inkjet ID card printer, you only use the ink you need to print your cards and will not need to worry about printing with costly ribbons.
  • 3 Year Manufacturer Warranty
    HID offers a two-year standard warranty on every printer purchased. After factory printer warranty online registration is complete, your warranty is automatically extended for an additional year. That’s 3 years of inkjet card printer coverage. ID Wholesaler also provides free 1-year TrueSupport coverage with optional extended coverages available.
  • Ideal Applications

  • Membership cards
  • Gift cards
  • Customer loyalty
  • K-12 Schools
