Why choose an HID Fargo DTC4250e System?
When purchased as a standalone piece of equipment, an ID card printer does not come with all of the supplies needed to begin making cards. To simplify your purchase and to save you money, we sell complete Fargo DTC4250e ID systems that have been bundled in-house by our ID Professionals.
Each Fargo DTC4250e ID card system provides everything you need to get your card printing program up and running: a printer, ID card software for designing and managing credentials, a printer ribbon, a photo ID camera, and PVC cards.
Plus, you can customize your system to meet the needs of your printing program by swapping the type of card stock included, adding features to your printer, opting for a more advanced camera or capable software, and/or add extended warranty and/or loaner coverage before checkout.
Should I choose the Single-Sided or the Dual-Sided DTC4250e ID system?
Consider the amount of information you need your cards to display. If you only want to feature a cardholder's name and photo, for example, a single-sided system will do the job. But, if you need to print cardholder information to both sides of your cards, a dual-sided system will save you time by enabling you to print to both sides of the card in a single pass.
While it is technically possible to print on both sides with a single-sided system by manually flipping the cards and sending them back through the printer, we do not recommend it. Doing so exposes the printhead to dust, debris, and oil from your fingertips, which can cause expensive printhead damage. Printhead damage caused by non-standard use such as this voids manufacturer warranty coverage, costing you more in the long run.

If my card needs change, what features can I add to the Fargo DTC4250e system in the future?
Our Fargo DTC4250e ID systems have the flexibility to change along with you as your card printing needs change. The following DTC4250e features are field-upgradeable, meaning that they can be added to your printer post-purchase:
Dual-sided printing: The DTC4250e duplex module increases the printable area of your cards, allowing you to print on both sides of a card in one process.
WiFi: The DTC4250e features Ethernet connectivity which allows for remote printer sharing by many users on a network. You can also add on Wi-Fi connectivity with the Wi-Fi Accessory, allowing you convenient access to your ID card printer anytime, anywhere!
Dual-input card hopper: Decrease costly downtime and increase efficiency with the dual-input card hopper. The DTC4250e dual-input hopper option enables you to load card less frequently or easily switch between two different card stocks.
