The FARGO® DTC1500 offers the convenience and lower cost of high-capacity consumables coupled with a comprehensive feature set and innovative, easy-to-implement security elements.
The DTC1500 also comes equipped with a unique resin scramble data protection feature which provides an additional layer of security by hiding any information printed with a resin panel rendering the panel unreadable.

Our starter pack for this machine comes with the following:

  • New 45610 (YMCKO) Colour Ribbon good for 500 prints
  • 100 Standard Blank HQ CR80 30mil White Cards

Brand New Fargo DTC1500 Single Side Direct To Card ID Printer

Custom overlay watermark comes standard on every unit. Standard password protection and AES 256 data encryption provide added peace of mind.

The DTC1500 offers innovative printing features such as resin threshold. Resin threshold allows for true “K-panel” printing when desired by enabling printer operators to manually set and adjust precisely when the resin K panel is utilized based on colour concentration. As a result, text and barcodes are darker and more crisply defined.
