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.

Choose from a Wealth of Options

The DTC1250e is designed for a wide range of applications. It prints on all types of cards, including ultra-thin loyalty and healthcare cards, rewritable cards (monochrome only), magstripe cards, and smart cards with embedded technology.  

Print with Peace of Mind  

The printer’s security features includes resin scramble data protection that renders the ribbon unreadable and AES 256 data encryption to protect your data. So you never have to worry that your cardholder’s information is being compromised.

Experience Zero-Headache Printing

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.

Optional Magstripe Encoding

You can easily add magnetic stripe encoding to the DTC1250e on site as your needs evolve.

Dual-Sided ID Card Printer

Dual-sided ID card printers provide a convenient and efficient solution for creating professional-quality ID cards. Compared to single-sided printers, dual-sided printers offer the ease of use that comes from not having to manually reinsert the card to print on the other side. This streamlines the printing process, saving both time and effort.

In terms of speed, dual-sided ID card printers are designed to print on both sides simultaneously, significantly reducing the time it takes to produce each card. This increased efficiency is particularly beneficial for organizations with large-scale printing needs, such as businesses, schools, and government agencies.

Dual-sided ID card printers also offer the flexibility to customize the content on both sides of the card. You can print the cardholder's photo, name, and other essential details on the front, while using the back for additional information, such as contact details, barcodes, QR codes, or company information. This versatility makes dual-sided ID card printers a valuable investment for organizations seeking a comprehensive and efficient ID card printing solution.
