IDP Smart-51 Overview

  • Printing Capability: Single-sided or dual-sided
  • Print Technology: Dye sublimation
  • Print Speed: Full-color, single-sided cards in 23 seconds & monochrome in 5
  • Input/Output Hopper: 100/40 cards
  • Warranty: 3 year manufacturer warranty

The IDP Smart-51 ID card printer, an upgrade from the Smart-50, is faster and more efficient so you can print professional ID cards with confidence.

User-Friendly Modular Design

With so many options, it's easy to customize the Smart-51 to meet your organization's specific needs. This allows you to get only the features you need without paying for expensive upgrades you may not use.

The base model comes as a single-sided, USB, non-encoding printer but you can choose to add dual-sided printing, Ethernet, and even lamination.

Convenient Batch Printing

The Smart-51 ID card printer comes with a 100 card input hopper and a 40 card output hopper, so you can quickly and easily print small to mid-sized batches of cards without having to stop frequently to load new cards. If you need to print a card or two, there's also an option to hand feed single cards.

And with fast print speeds, batch printing will take only minutes – you can print full color cards in only 17 seconds per card (a one second improvement over the Smart-50). For monochrome cards it will take five seconds, and for dual-sided full color cards (black on the back) it only takes 22 seconds.

Printer Options & Upgrades

The Smart-51 is available with the following upgrades:

  • Dual-sided printing
  • Ethernet connectivity
  • Lamination

Smart-51 Printer Warranty

The IDP Smart-51 ID card printer comes with a three year manufacturer warranty.
