Fargo 84053 HDP 5000 Retransfer Film
The 84053 HDP(High Definition Printer) Film is designed for the Fargo HDP5000 Retransfer Printer. You can print approximately 1,500 images with this film. This film takes the place of the overlay or topcoat found in Direct to Card printing.
Specially formulated HDP dye-sublimation ribbons print full-color images onto the underside of clear HDP Film. The HDP Film is then transferred to the card through heat and pressure.
HDP printing is a complex, revolutionary technology.
Significant engineering energy was exerted to find the perfect combination of color ribbons, clear HDP Film and card materials that work in harmony to create highly durable and consistently excellent quality prints - even on tough-to-print matte finished cards, proximity cards and smart cards!
Composite cards are the preferred cards for retransfer printing. The film adheres to the blended PVC / PET cards and gives your cards durability.
There are benefits to retransfer printing over direct-to-card printing. The first benefit is better tamper evidence. The retransfer film gives your card a solid layer of print. If some one tampers with that layer it is clearly visible. Second, you get true edge to edge printing. The film covers the entire side of the card and eliminates the slight edge that is sometimes visible with direct to card printing. Third, retransfer film works to mask any imperfections in the card. Uneven surfaces can result with proximity access cards and the solid layer of film can hide these imperfections where direct-to-card printing can highlight them.
