Input Card Hopper Lock

The input card hopper lock keeps your printed cards secure if the printer is left unattended at any point during the working day. This feature means you have one less thing to worry about, and gives you complete peace of mind that your printed cards won’t get into the wrong hands.

Ribbon Lock

The new ribbon lock means your used card printer ribbons stay secure if the printer is left unattended at any point during the working day. Locking the ribbon when not in use means the ribbon cannot be removed from your printer and the data visible on the resin panel of a ribbon remains secure. If this data was the cause of the security breach then the consequences to yourself and the organisation could be detrimental, so ensuring your ribbon data remains secure must be taken seriously.

Kensington Lock

The secure kensington lock feature significantly decreases the risk of your card printer being stolen, and eliminates that potential awkward conversation with your manager, explaining how the printer was stolen from the reception area. The lock is securely attached to the chassis of the printer, and within seconds can be locked to a piece of office furniture.


SmartMark is an advanced visual card security feature only applicable to the IDP Smart 51. It’s quick and easy to setup and comes at no extra cost. The watermark appears in a transparent overlay panel on the surface of the card. It's visible to the naked eye and can be customised to include text, pictures or logos. Adding this feature to your printed cards dramatically decreases the risk of card cloning and means any cloned attempts can be easily identified.

Print Quality

The IDP Smart 51 lockable bundle uses Enhanced FINE™ Imaging Technology. This technology ensures your printed cards have photo-like images, vibrant colours, crisp text, and are instantly dry and ready to issue.


Years of development and manufacturing innovation has made the IDP Smart printer brand known for its durability, which is backed up by an industry leading five-year manufacturer warranty.

Ease of Use

This printer is user-friendly and intuitive, and everyday tasks can be completed in a matter of minutes. The current print status, low ribbon notifications and cleaning cycle prompts are all easy tasks to address. After a few batch runs, you’ll be able to share your knowledge with colleagues and also share the printing requirements if necessary.

Ease of Setup

Set up is simple and is focused on making the process quick and efficient with the user in mind. Unbox and follow the quick start guide to get going.

Card Types

The IDP Smart 51 prints to standard CR80 sized cards from a wide range of materials including PVC, PET, and composite PVC cards.

CR79 cards are also compatible with this machine, these types of cards are slightly smaller than CR80.

Print Volume

If you’re printing a high volume of cards each month, then you'll need a printer that you can rely on, that can also produce the highest quality print possible.

Based on a standard working day of seven hours, the IDP Smart 51 will be able to produce around 5,000 single-colour cards (monochrome) and 1,475 full-colour cards (YMCKO).

Print Speed

Compared to its predecessor the IDP Smart 50, the 51 can print up to 10% faster. In five seconds this printer can print a single-colour card or a full-colour card in 17 seconds. When either of these cards has been printed, they're instantly dry, ready to issue, and scratch and colour fade resistant.

A speed advantage to the 51 model is the addition of the input hopper cover that can open further which allows up to 200 cards at a time. By using this and the optional upgrade of the rear side card stacker a user can print 150% more cards in each batch.


To accommodate the needs of modern businesses the 51 comes with USB connectivity.

Operating Systems

The IDP Smart 51 is compatible with Microsoft Windows 2000, 2003, XP, Vista, 7, 8, 10, Mac OS, and Linux.


The 51 base model is a slim medium-sized printer that will sit comfortably on an office desk. The exact dimensions of this machine are; width 16.5 cm, length 39 cm and height 21 cm.


Looks are subjective, but in our opinion, the 51 carries a modern appearance. It has a sleek and minimalistic aesthetic that is easy on the eyes and will fit in nicely in a professional office environment.

The two-line LCD screen for navigation of the printer with two LED buttons fits comfortably on the face of the printer.

* The free ID Card software is eMedia starter which is only compatible with Windows machines and is limited to single side printing with 100 records database. Upgrades can be purchased at anytime.
