High Definition Printing uses retransfer printer technology and is great for printing contact and contactless smart cards, clamshell proximity cards, and other common technology cards. This is the most advanced method of card printing available, using dye-sublimation technology to print sharp, 300-dpi images on the underside of HDP Film developed by Fargo.

The HDP5000 Film fuses to the surface of your cards, adhering to ridges and indentations formed by embedded electronics, and offers an extra layer of card durability and security.

If the film is peeled apart in an attempt to alter the card, the printed image will almost completely destroy itself.

The High Definition Printing can also print right up to the edge of exposed any smart card contacts. Conventional types of dye-sub printers need to leave a clear space around the contact pads to prevent damages from being caused to the print head. Many organizations have expanded their use of multi-functioning smart carts including Healthcare facilities, corporations and small businesses, and government agencies.
