cards for every application

Superior print quality, higher reliability and durability, greater security - your photo ID cards will have all these qualities when you print and encode them with the affordable and versatile HDP5000 ID card printer and encoder.


Built-in high definition
printing technology

If superior print quality is what you're looking for, even on smart cards with embedded electronics, this printer will deliver sharp photo-like images including detailed text. 


Dual-sided durability
and security simplfied 

Applying a holographic custom overlaminate design or holographic HDP film to the front or both sides of an ID card improves its durability and security. The HDP5000 laminates both sides of a card simultaneously in one efficient pass, without wasting time turning a card over.


High capacity input
for quick card printing

Sit back and let the printer do the work for you with more batch printing functionality, designed to hold up to 100 cards at a time with up to 200 card output capacity, saving you time and labor from restocking your hopper.
