Product Description

Printing made easy A double-sided ID card printer like the duplex Fargo DTC400 is a beneficial addition to a wide variety of organizations - from gyms to universities to the military. Double-sided printers like the DTC400 offer higher security and more card printing options than their single-sided counterparts. The Fargo DTC400 double-sided ID card printer offers secure, high quality double-sided printing, easy maintenance and the durability and workmanship associated with the Fargo Printers name. Why Double-Sided Printing? Double-sided printing has many benefits, including higher security and more options for customization. Larger companies, universities and retail stores use duplex printers like the Fargo DTC400 and use all the benefits to their advantage. For example, a company might choose to put an employee photo and company logo on the front of an ID card, and print personal information like office location and security clearances on the back of the card. A retail store may use a DTC400 to print store gift cards, with the store logo on the front and information like expiration date and card amount on the back. These features, along with being more attractive and personalized, also help increase security by making the card more difficult to copy. With Fargo Printers Comes Effortless Maintenance Like other printers in the Fargo Family of Printers, the Fargo DTC400 Duplex printer comes with Fargo's patented Load-n-Go� technology, which integrates printer ribbon and a cleaning roll into one cartridge. When it comes time to change the ribbon on a Fargo DTC400, just take out the old cartridge and snap the new one in. It's that easy! Never worry about broken ribbons again.

With the DTC400's SmartScreen� LCD screen, you no longer have to spend time trying to deciper what your printer is trying to say with blinking lights. Instead, the SmartScreen� informs you about the status of your print job and ribbons, constantly keeping you in the loop. The Fargo Name Fargo is known worldwide as a top-notch provider of ID card printers and supplies, and the double-sided DTC400 is no exception. Count on the Fargo DTC400 for durable construction, high quality printing, and the most user friendly interface.

Microsoft Windows guaranteed compatibility. The DTC400 single-sided card printer has been tested to ensure it meets the Microsoft standards for Windows compatibility.
