The First and Only of its Kind!

The HID FARGO INK1000 is a highly specialized thermal inkjet printer that has been specifically engineered to be compatible with standard, off-the-shelf PVC cards – an industry first!

  • Supports standard PVC card types: PVC, press polished PVC, composite (PET/PVC with PVC as an outer layer), laminated PVC (credit card construction)
  • Specialized printer design includes card heating technology to allow improved acceptance/adherence of ink to card substrate and aid in rapid drying
  • Exclusively formulated ink to promote adherence to card and support enhanced UV-stability (fade prevention)

Product Details

The HID® FARGO® INK1000 is the latest printer innovation to join HID Global’s family of desktop-based card printers. 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!

  • Affordable – Brings your card designs to life in brilliant 600 dpi x 1200 dpi resolution at a fraction of the cost of ribbon-based card printers

  • Inkjet composite black produces scannable barcodes and its high resolution is perfect for printing even complex characters, such as Kanji, Arabic and Cyrillic
