IDP Smart 51 ID Card Printer Description

IDP Smart 51 Single-Sided Photo ID System

Did you fall in love with the reliability + low price-per-print of the IDP Smart 50 Photo ID System, but wished it...

  • ...was even faster?
  • ...could hold more cards?
  • ...had even better image quality?

The IDP Smart 51 is a faster, fuller version of its wildly popular predecessor — the IDP Smart 50. Voted one of five Best ID Card Printers of 2018 by Digital Connect Mag, the IDP Smart 51  offers reliable, high-speed printing at an astonishingly low price.

Ideal for: Medium-size businesses, K-12 schools, colleges, and government agencies.

Why you’ll love it: High quality prints + high speed at a low price. Double layer of visual security on cards comes standard (UV ribbon needed). 3-year exchange warranty.

Typical Applications: Access control cards, student IDs, employee IDs, payment cards,  membership cards, loyalty cards, event badges, guest cards.

IDP Smart 51 Single-Sided ID Printer

Enjoy Full-Color Cards in 17 Seconds

The IDP Smart 51 combines speed (17 seconds per full-color card!) and capacity (the input hopper holds 200 cards with its cover open) to print your ID cards faster than ever. Plus, it comes with a removable output hopper for easy handling of on-demand and batch printing. 

Print Photo-Quality Prints at Affordable Prices

The IDP Smart 51 uses enhanced FineTM Imaging Technology to give you vibrant, life-like images and crisp, sharp text.

Print Easily With This User-Friendly Printer

The IDP Smart 51 is intuitive and easy to use. An LCD display lets anyone operate and check print status. Ribbons slide in easily for quick changes. Expect a no-hassle printing experience.

These Cards are Forgery-Proof

The IDP Smart 51 can print a customizable SmartMark watermark on each card with no special ribbon or overlaminate, in addition to a secure UV layer that’s only visible under a UV light (UV ribbon needed). Combining BOTH visual security features creates a virtually forgery-proof card—something no other printer at this price point can offer. 

Print with Peace of Mind

IDP’s printers are backed by IDP - a leading company in ID card printer innovation and technology. And to show you how confident they are in this printer, IDP offers a 3-year warranty. If anything goes wrong with the printer during that time, they’ll send you an immediate replacement for you to keep—no need to bother with printers being shipped back and forth. A 2-year no-questions-asked warranty on the printhead guarantees your complete satisfaction.

Upgrade Easily as Your Needs Grow

The IDP Smart 51 is a modular printer, so you can easily add security or performance features as your organization grows. No need for you to forecast what you might need later—the following upgrades can be easily performed at your office at anytime.

Optional Dual-Sided Printing

Easily install the flipper module as your needs grow to add dual-sided printing capabilities to print additional information—like a barcode or digital signature—on the back of the card.

Optional Lamination

Easily attach the lamination module when you decide to add a layer of security + durability to your cards. When you laminate your cards, you end up saving money because you don’t need to issue cards as frequently. You also protect the cards from forgery, especially when you use Hologram Patch Film.

Configure the IDP Smart 51 According to your Needs

The IDP Smart 51 can be factory-configured according to your specifications. Factory upgrades must be ordered at time of sale and include the following: Ethernet capability; magnetic stripe, contact chip, and contactless chip encoding; and anti-theft protection. 

Logitech C270 HD Webcam

Take High-Resolution Snapshots

The Logitech webcam features Logitech Fluid Crystal™ Technology—enabling it to capture crisp, clear photos that transfer effortlessly onto your photo ID badges. Simply plug it into your computer’s USB port and it is ready for use.

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.
