It is the most advanced method of card printing available, using dye-sublimation technology to print crisp, 300-dpi images on the underside of HDP Film developed by Fargo.

The HDP5000 Film fuses to the surface of your cards and conforms to any indentations and ridges formed by embedded electronics to create an extra layer of durability and security.

Many organizations have expanded their use of multi-functioning smart carts including Healthcare facilities, corporations and small businesses, and government agencies.
