The Fargo DTC400e Direct-to-Card Printer/Encoder makes issuing ID cards a simple, smooth and virtually maintenance-free process. You'll be amazed with its ability to produce sharp and durable Smart Cards and Holographic Foil Cards. The Holographic Foil adds high security feature to your cards, making them less vulnerable to counterfeit. The All-in-one ribbon cartridge makes it simple to maintain the printer. This printer is a cost effective solution, and will save you money in the long run.



1 - Adding the Dual Side printing module gives you more space to add information on the card. You will have enough space to make a good design that includes photos, bar codes and digital signatures. This makes the card durable and attractive.

2 - Make your cards more versatile by adding the optional DTC400e module. It encodes data onto contact and contactless smart cards, proximity access control cards and magnetic stripe cards. This gives you greater access control.

3 - The DTC400e follows the direct-to-card printing method. This produces bright color cards that look really great and truly photographic. This is also a faster printing process as the cards get printed quickly.

4 - The all-in-one ribbon cartridge makes replacing cartridge an easy job. You don't have to change the ribbon and the card cleaning mechanism separately; the card cleaning roller is integrated into it. So when you change the cartridge, you change both making it easy for you to maintain the printer.

5 - The SmartScreen LCD Control Panel keeps you updated on your print job. The print status display starts from the moment you press the print button from your computer and finishes when the print job is complete. It will display any errors that occurred, reducing your delay time.

Designed for simple operation and advanced security
An effective and affordable first layer of defense

The DTC400 Series printer/encoder is designed to help you easily and affordably produce secure plastic ID cards that pose tough challenges to would-be counterfeiters. Fargo Secure HoloMark™ and VeriMark™ cards provide a highly effective first line of defense. These cards feature a tamper-resistant, instantly verifiable foil, permanently embedded on each card, which dramatically increases card security compared to unmarked, easily replicated white cards.

Both HoloMark and VeriMark cards are compatible with DTC400 Series printer/encoders.

HoloMark™ Cards

A holographic image embedded into the card surface provides the highest level of non-laminated card security. Specify a standard hologram, or turn a custom graphic into a one-of-a-kind holographic image.

VeriMark™ Cards

Add personalized text or graphics onto a silver metallic foil for a durable, distinctive and cost-effective visual counterfeit deterrent.
