The FARGO® DTC4500e is an easy to use printer. It has an easy and efficient setup, coupled with the loading of printer ribbon which is also very easy. The printer ribbons used with the DTC4500e printer are economical and eco-friendly so that you can help save the world while you save your organisation's ID problems
The speed of the print is absolutely impressive. The Fargo DTC4500e printer can print a full colour card in 24 seconds on both sides, not just one.

In most instances when you print in just one monochrome colour, it will only take 6 seconds and if you’re adding a clear protective overlay, it’ll only take an extra 2 seconds.
