It is ideal for printing the most common technology used in cards, including contact and contactless smart cards as well as clamshell proximity cards. This happens to be one of the most advanced methods of car printing available, the use of advanced dye-sublimation technology has been able to produce crisp print jobs, with 300-dpi images on the underside of HDP Films that are 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.

If a counterfeiter tries to peel the film apart in an attempt to alter the card, the printed image essentially destroys itself.
