HDP (high definition printing) uses retransfer printer technology and is great for printing the most commonly used technology cards, such as contact and contactless smart cards, as well as clamshell proximity cards. It is the most advanced method of card printing available, using dye-sublimation technology to print crisp, 300-dpi images on the underside of HDP Film developed by Fargo.

The HDP5000 Film adheres to the surface of the cards and conforms to any ridges or indentations formed by embedded electronics and adds an extra layer of strength and security.

In the case of a counterfeiter trying to peel the film apart in an attempt to alter the card, the printed image will almost completely destroy itself.

High Definition Printing can also print right up to the edge of exposed smart card contacts. Conventional dye-sub printers must leave clear space around contact pads to avoid print head damage.
