Fargo INK1000 Single Sided ID Card Printer
Bringing the simplicity and affordability of inkjet printing to personalized cards and IDs, the HID FARGO INK1000 is unmatched in its ease-of-use and offers a lower TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) than most card printers in the industry.
Ultra-reliable and low maintenance, the HID FARGO INK1000 features exclusive inkjet printing technology, eliminating the hassles of print ribbons or the need for specialized card media. Easy-to-install, snap-in ink cartridges contain specially formulated inks that naturally adhere to standard, off-the-shelf PVC and composite cards. Because inks are inherently UV-stable, images and text exhibit improved fade resistance compared to DTC-printed cards—even without expensive overlay protectants. Depending on the complexity of your card design, a single ink cartridge has the potential to produce hundreds more cards than would be possible with print ribbons—bringing your card designs to life with significantly less waste and at a fraction of the cost!
With its high 600 dpi x 1200 dpi resolution, images are sharp and brilliant—and text and barcodes are crisply defined. The INK1000 also offers true edge-to-edge printing to accommodate full card coverage designs, eliminating those pesky white border edges left behind by standard Direct-to-Card printers. What’s more, its small footprint with same-side input and output and intuitive operation make the INK1000 perfect for any office environment. It’s as simple to use as the inkjet printer in your home or office!
Easy-to-use, affordable and dependable, the HID FARGO INK1000 featuring exclusive inkjet technology is the next revolution in card printing.
Up to 600 dpi x 1200 dpi (23.6 dots/mm x 47.2 dots/mm)
The HID FARGO INK1000 printer utilizes a single ink cartridge containing YMC (Yellow, Magenta, Cyan) solvent-based inks for printing full-color card designs and barcode-readable composite black. The composite black created by the HID FARGO INK1000 can accurately reproduce even complex characters, such as Kanji, Arabic and Cyrillic. The easy-to-install, snap-in ink cartridge contains specially formulated inks that naturally adhere to standard, off-the-shelf PVC and composite cards—and because inks are inherently UV-stable, images and text exhibit improved fade resistance.
