Fargo HDP Film is required for printing any type of cards with HID HDP5000 printers. Fargo HDP printers print your card image to underside of 084053 HDP film. The film is then applied to the surface of the card, “sandwiching” the image between the film and the card. Fargo HDP card printers require this specialized film to function properly and maximize printed card quality and printer durability. HID Fargo Full Color Ribbons are used with this film for printing on technology cards to produce durable high quality ID badges.
*HID Global upgraded the RFID communication technology utilized by some Fargo ID card printer ribbons and overlaminate consumables, back in October 2013. After HID implemented this new technology, most ID card printers and laminators manufactured before mid-2010 will require a firmware update to ensure compatibility with the new consumables technology.
