This powerful printer uses two different technologies to print clear, high quality ID cards – reverse transfer printing, and an optional 600 dpi printhead.

Reverse Transfer Printing

Reverse transfer printing uses a printhead and colored ribbons like a dye sublimation printer, but adds an extra step to the printing process. Your design is first printed onto a clear transfer film, and that film is then applied to the card. Learn more about reverse transfer printing.

600 dpi Printhead

Dpi stands for dots per inch – in printing this is a way of measuring print image quality. A standard printer has a 300 dpi printhead, which comes in the base model of the HDP5600 printer. For higher quality printing, however, upgrade to the 600 dpi printhead – this allows you to print a higher quality image.
