Fargo ID Card Printers & Systems

Fargo ID card printers come in a wide range of styles, designed for the low-volume entry ID card systems all the way up to highly secure, high-volume systems. Most Fargo printers come with an array of optional features and upgrades as well, so you can customize the printer so it keeps up with your ID card demands.

For a fully featured printer, try the Fargo DTC4500e – this printer is available in single or dual-sided printing with options for magnetic stripe encoding, lamination, and a locking hopper to protect your cards.

Fargo Color & Monochrome Printer Ribbons

Printer ribbons are what your ID card printer uses to print, instead of ink like the printers you may be used to. These ribbons come in a huge range of styles and print yields, so you can print everything from full-color photo ID cards to simple membership cards with a barcode and member ID number.

Fargo color ribbons are used to print all the colors on your ID cards along with black text or barcodes. Monochrome ribbons print in only a single color with no shading or gradient.

Not sure which ribbon you need for your ID card printer? Try the handy “Find My Ribbon” tool at the top of the page to find all the ribbons specific to your printer model.

Fargo Overlamiantes

If you want to laminate your cards to incraese their durability, you’ll need an overlaminate film in addition to the color/monochrome ribbon you use to print your design. These laminate films come in both clear and holographic, so you can add a holographic layer to your ID cards to increase their visual security.

Fargo Cleaning Kits

The last supply you’ll need to keep your Fargo ID card printer system working is a cleaning kit. You should be regularly cleaning your ID card printer to prevent the build-up of dust and debris that can damage the printer; a good rule to follow is to clean your printer every time you replace the ribbon.

What comes in a cleaning kit? Supplies will vary by printer model, but can include some or all of the following:

  • Cleaning pens
  • Extra large cleaning cards
  • Swabs
  • Wipes
  • Cleaning rollers
