Fargo 82608 half patch lamination (also referred to as alternating overlamination) provides a layer of protection over your printed cards, making them more durable and providing protection from wear and fading. The Fargo 82608 applies a half-patch laminate on the magnetic stripe side or back side of the card.

Fargo 82608 laminate is perfect for magnetic stripe cards applying maximum overlamination while leaving the card's magnetic stripe exposed.

Note: for maximum protection of your magnetic stripe cards use the 82608 Half Patch laminate in conjunction with the Fargo 82601 1.0 mil PolyGuard Laminate - 250 imprints to apply a full patch laminate to the front side of the card.

A printer with lamination capability is needed in order to use Fargo 82608 overlamination.

Fargo card printers require specialized Fargo overlaminate to function properly. To maximize printed card quality and printer durability, use only genuine Fargo overlaminate.

Fargo 82608 is compatible with Fargo HDP8500, HDP5000, DTC4500 and DTC1500 laminating printers, in cartridge 2.

ID Wholesaler offers a low price guarantee on Fargo 82608 0.6 mil clear lamination.

Did you know that Fargo 82608 ribbons have a shelf life?

When stored under proper conditions, Fargo 82608 laminate ribbons typically have a shelf life of up to one year. Ribbons that are more than a year old, and improperly stored, will not print optimally and will likely end up costing more money and time in maintenance and in reprinting cards.

ID Wholesaler is an authorized Fargo reseller specializing in ID card printing products. We guarantee that our 82608 laminates are genuine Fargo ribbons, are properly stored, and are always 'fresh'.

How do you find your ribbon's shelf life?
To find whether your ribbon is past its shelf life, look for the manufactured date above the part number on the sticker on the box.
