Complete Fargo DTC4250e ID Card System for printing custom single-sided employee ID cards, volunteer ID cards, membership ID cards, and more. With the DTC4250e printer it takes only 16 seconds to print full color cards, so you can quickly print ID cards whenever you need.

Fargo DTC4250e ID Card Printer

Designed for medium sized programs and batch printing, the Fargo DTC4250e ID card printer can produce full color cards in just seconds. For easy maintenance and to reduce printer downtime, the ribbons come with an included cleaning roller so you can easily batch print cards.

Fargo DTC4250e Overview
  • Printing Capability: Single sided
  • Print Technology: Dye Sublimation
  • Print Speed: Fill color single sided cards in 16 seconds & monochrome in 6
  • Cost per Card: $0.66
  • Input/Output Hopper: 100/100 cards
  • Warranty: 3 year warranty for both printer and printhead
Speedy ID Card Printing

When you need to print ID cards quickly, you can't beat the speed of the DTC4250e. With the ability to print single-sided full color cards in just 16 seconds, or monochrome cards in 6 seconds, and the 100 card input-output hopper for batch printing, your registration office or front desk will never be waiting for cards.

If you need to print multiple types of cards, the DTC4250e is equipped to print on both standard CR-80 cards and CR-79 adhesive backed cards. You can also print on cards of varying thickness, from thin 9 mil business cards to thinker 40 mil technology cards.

Options for Larger Batch Printing

If you need to print large numbers of cards at once, the DTC4250e comes with several options to make that easier. The default input and output card hoppers hold 100 cards each, so you can print 100 cards at a time without needing to reload the printer with more cards. For ease of use, you can also upgrade to a same side card input/output hopper (traditionally the input hopper is on one side, and the output hopper on the other) so all your cards are on the same side.

DTC4250e Printer Warranty

The Fargo DTC4250e ID card printer comes with a three year manufacturer warranty covering the printer and printhead (one-time replacement).
