HDPii Financial Card Printer/Encoders


Financial institutions can now deliver a highly personalized customer experience with instant card issuance. The Fargo HDPii makes instant issuance practical, affordable and profitable for a wide range of financial cards. It produces the new generation of financial cards with no embossed text and, increasingly, a contact or contactless smart chip inside. By giving institutions the ability to personally hand these cards to customers, the HDPii Financial Card Printer/Encoder raises customer service and loyalty to a new level. It helps lift activation to 100% and shift first transaction to just a day or two after issuance.
Attract new customers and build your business with highly customized designs for credit, debit, prepaid and retail gift cards.
High Definition Printing‚ (HDP) technology prints photo-quality continuous-tone images over the card edge with vibrant colors and sharp text and graphics.
Special features such as lockable security housing, concealed output hopper and encryption make the HDPii compliant with financial card association security requirements.
HDP re-transfer printing technology seals the card image under the HDP film for increased durability, fraud protection, and to replicate the look of preprinted cards.
Simplifies logistics at branch locations by stocking only blank cards imprinted with each card association's brand.

The HDPii printer/encoder was designed specifically for the secure instant issuance of financial cards. It prints financial cards on both sides and writes card data with its standard magnetic stripe encoder and optional contact or contactless smart card encoders. Special features of the HDPii make it compliant with card association security requirements.

Visual Security Solutions™: Holographic HDP® Film
High Secure holograms on tamper-evident HDP Film are the ultimate in visual security. Choose either a custom film with your unique holographic image, or film with Fargo's standard Orbit hologram. Both include multiple Visual Security Elements and are difficult to forge, yet easy to authenticate.

High Definition Printing™ Technology
The uneven surface of smart cards presents a challenge to traditional dye-sublimation card printers. But Fargo's High Definition Printing™ Technology overcomes this problem while increasing card security with a tamper-evident image.

Smart card encoding
Comprehensive security applications frequently combine photo IDs with some type of technology or cards. With optional modules, Fargo's Professional Series printer encoders can encode up to three smart card technologies in one pass: contact and contactless smart card, mag stripe, and proximity card (read-only.)
