Product Description

The Fargo HDP8500 is an enterprise, top-of-the-line PVC ID card printer from HID® that is ideal for government applications and other large-scale badging needs. It is designed to consistently handle large badging operations and to produce professional credentials, time after time.

The printer uses a combination of dye-sublimation and resin thermal transfer printing to create sharp images and crisp text for a professional look. Over-the-edge printing covers the entire face of the card, making white borders a thing of the past. Dual-sided printing comes standard on the Fargo HDP8500, which is capable of creating dual-sided cards in as little as 40 seconds.

A touch-screen display makes the Fargo HDP8500 easy to use, while two 200-card input hoppers allow the HDP8500 to handle large print jobs with ease. The HDP8500 is an upgradable printer as well, with add-on modules available to increase the printer's capabilities. Modules include lamination, network connectivity, smart card encoding and more.

This model of the Fargo HDP8500 features a flattener, which applies heat and pressure to a card after printing to eliminate concerns about bending or warping. A magnetic stripe encoder is also included, allowing cards with magnetic stripes to be programmed for use with compatible card readers for making payments, granting access and more.

The Fargo HDP8500 is used in hundreds of government offices around the globe. It is the perfect PVC ID card printer for printing driver's license, citizen ID cards and credentials, EBT cards, government ID credentials and other official credentials.

This model is covered by a three-year manufacturer warranty and is eligible for additional protection through the purchase of a printer service plan from IDenticard.
