DTC500 Series Card Printers - Expertly Engineered.  Surprisingly Simple.

This generation of card printer/encoders will forever change your expectations of compact, desktop card printers. Each of the affordable DTC500 Series Card Printer/Encoders is loaded with exciting technology and advanced features. Whether you print membership cards, employee access cards, student IDs or loyalty cards, these futuristic FARGO Card Printer/Encoders will impress you with their rugged reliability, ease-of-use and quiet performance!

Equipped with exciting new features


Just look at some of the things you get. Start with dual, 100-card input hoppers on the DTC515 and DTC525 models. This exclusive design allows you to load up to 200 of the same type of card or place a different stack of cards into each hopper for added versatility and efficiency. You'll also appreciate the removable card cleaning cartridge with replaceable cleaning tape for easy maintenance and improved print quality. Then there's the comprehensive printer security package (DTC515 and DTC525 only.) This includes a card-protecting lockable hopper, and FARGO's exclusive SmartGuard™ printer security, and SmartShield™ card security technology.

Fast and highly versatile

Thanks to a powerful print engine and 8 MB of RAM, FARGO DTC500 Series Card Printer/Encoders breeze through 133 color cards per hour. Quickly print facility access cards, corporate ID badges, club membership cards -- and much more!

The dual-hopper, 200-card capacity DTC515 and DTC525 models print longer without needing a refill! These printer/encoders are also designed for easy, automated printing of two different types of cards -- even cards with different thicknesses. What's more, FARGO DTC500 Series Card Printer/Encoders are available with an embedded fonts and bar codes option for personalized ID card printing from AS/400, mainframe and other systems.
