High Definition Printing uses retransfer printer technology and is perfect for printing the most popular technology cards, including contact and contactless smart cards, and clamshell proximity cards. High Definition Printing is the most advanced method of card printing available, using dye-sublimation technology to print crisp, 300-dpi images on the underside of Fargo’s own HDP film.

The film fuses onto the surface of your cards, conforming to ridges and indentations, providing an extra layer of card durability and security.

In the case of a counterfeiter trying to peel the film apart in an attempt to alter the card, the printed image will almost completely destroy itself.

High Definition Printing will print right up to the edge of exposed smart card contacts. Conventional dye-sub printers must leave clear space around contact pads to avoid print head damage. Multifunction smart cards are becoming more popular with colleges, loyalty and membership programs, businesses and corporations, health care facilities, and government agencies.
