What's the Difference Between a Single-Sided and a Dual-Sided Fargo Printer?

Fargo ID Card Printer SampleSimply put, a single-sided printer prints on one side of your cards and a dual-sided printer prints on both sides of your cards in one process.

Choose a single-sided Fargo printer if you will be creating ID cards with limited cardholder information.

Choose a dual-sided Fargo printer if you want the front of your cards to remain clean and uncluttered; printing some of your card-holder info on the back of your cards will keep the front of your cards looking their best!

Unsure what your future holds? Single-sided Fargo DTC4250e, DTC4500e, and HDP5000 printers can be upgraded to two-sided printing by adding a field-upgradeable duplex module. If you are unsure whether your needs may change in the future, or perhaps you may be planning to expand how your cards will be used, we recommend shopping for a Fargo printer that offers easy upgrade options when you'll need them.

Why Would I Need to Laminate my Plastic Cards?

If you recall the old days of cutting and pasting an ID card together, lamination may confuse you a bit. You might wonder why you would need lamination when printing directly to plastic. In plastic card printing, lamination is a clear protective layer that is applied over the top of your printed cards by a printer with lamination capability. Primarily this is used to extend the life of your cards (the additional layer adds protection from physical wear, rubbing, etc as well as fading from the sun) and to increase security. The additional layer makes it more difficult to tamper with cards, and when coupled with holographic laminates, makes cards almost impossible to duplicate.

What is a Retransfer Printer?

Many experienced card printer users are familiar with the white border that direct-to-card printers leave around the edge of cards. Retransfer printers, on the other hand, produce "over-the-edge" prints that cover the entire surface of your cards. Direct-to-card printers print directly to the surface of cards. Any uneven surface of a card including coming in contact with the edge of a card can cause expensive printhead damage. Retransfer printers, like the Fargo HDP5000, print your card image to a clear film (retransfer or HDP film) that is then fused onto the surface of the card. With this process, the printhead does not come in direct contact with your card, allowing you to print over the edge of your cards and to a wider variety of card surfaces including proximity cards, smart cards, pre-punched cards and key tag cards. Another benefit: retransfer printers produce imagery with rich, vibrant, saturated colors.
