The HID FARGO INK1000 printer utilizes a single ink cartridge containing YMC (Yellow, Magenta, Cyan) solvent-based inks for printing full-color card designs and barcode-readable composite black. The composite black created by the HID FARGO INK1000 can accurately reproduce even complex characters, such as Kanji, Arabic and Cyrillic. The easy-to-install, snap-in ink cartridge contains specially formulated inks that naturally adhere to standard, off-the-shelf PVC and composite cards—and because inks are inherently UV-stable, images and text exhibit improved fade resistance. During the printing process, the card is also slightly heated to promote adherence. The thermal “printhead” (ink cartridge) then expels liquid solvent ink droplets onto the card substrate – “biting” into card surface. As the solvent evaporates (evaporating all excess liquid), only a hard layer of ink remains. As this reaction happens so rapidly, card text and images dry virtually instantly.
