Flexible and powerful, the Fargo DTC1500 ID Card Printer with Lamination includes important features for designing and printing long-lasting ID cards.
The Fargo DTC1500 printer is a dye-sublimation printer with options for dual-sided printing and magnetic stripe encoding, along with two important features for the card and data security. With its 100-card input and output hoppers, this printer is designed for mid to high-volume printing.
The DTC1500 is also Green Circle® Certified for its efficient energy consumption and environmentally-friendly refill ribbons.
Built-in Custom Watermark Overlay
Adding visual security to your cards is easy with the built-in custom watermark overlay feature. This allows you to use the overlay panel of the ribbon to print a customized transparent image or text over your cards – making it easier for you to spot authentic cards.
This custom watermark overlay can be any design, logo, or text you wish, allowing you to design it specifically for your organization instead of choosing from generic pre-designed options. And it doesn't cost extra, or require specialized ribbons or equipment!
Resin Scramble Data Protection
If you need to protect the information you print on your cards, you'll want the resin scramble data protection built into the DTC1500. The resin (K) panel is used to print black text and barcodes.
When you print a card, a sort of negative image is left on the ribbon that shows what you printed – for organizations with high-security standards, this can be a problem if someone gets ahold of the ribbons. The DTC1500 printer will render the resin panel unreadable after printing, masking any data you may have printed on your cards.
Lamination for Added Durability
The DTC1500 printer comes with single-sided lamination to add durability to your ID cards by applying a protective coat of laminate that shields your cards from the daily wear and tear of card use. The Fargo DTC1500 ID card printer even has a longer-lasting laminate option for even more card protection.
Along with protecting your cards from the elements, lamination also helps prevent fraudulent card tampering or reproduction. Lamination makes it harder to tamper with the cards because as the lamination film is peeled back the text and images are damaged. You can also use lamination film with holographic images to make your cards easily identifiable.
