Enjoy Rich, Vibrant Images

The Fargo DTC1250e uses direct-to-card printing to print vivid, edge-to-edge images. Print either monochrome or full-color customized ID cards.  Color Assist™ spot-color matching included in the Fargo Workbench diagnostic ensures perfectly accurate graphics and logos.

The integrated card-cleaning roller cleans each card before printing to ensure outstanding print quality.  The printer also comes with the Fargo Workbench diagnostic software that lets you know when routine maintenance is needed. A three-year manufacturer’s warranty gives you added protection.
