About the Fargo INK1000 card printer

Ultra-reliable, low maintenance and less expensive than many standard card printers on the market today, 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

True 1200 DPI Printing


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!
