The unbelievably easy way to print and encode plastic ID cards.

Securing your organization just got easier, with the Fargo DTC300

There's no easier way to increase your employees' security and decrease your organization's vulnerability than by issuing photo ID cards. Fargo’s next-generation DTC300 Direct-to-Card Printer/Encoder is specifically designed to make issuing IDs and securing your organization go smoothly. It's simple to operate, and there's virtually no learning curve or maintenance. Plus, you can effortlessly increase productivity by integrating the DTC300 with your existing human resources, time and attendance, visitor management or access control systems.

Eliminate ribbon loading and card cleaning hassle.
The DTC300’s all-in-one print ribbon/card cleaning system – the SmartLoad™ Ribbon Cartridge – installs in one easy step. A SmartClean™ Roller is integrated into every cartridge, so there’s no need to deal with a separate card cleaning mechanism.

Troubleshooting is unbelievably easy.
Unlike other card printers that communicate with confusing, blinking LED lights, the DTC300 communicates via its SmartScreen™ LCD Control Panel. This clear display offers easy-to-understand prompts and commands, so you’ll always know the status of print jobs.

Add new, or additional functionality to your ID cards. Order your DTC300 with the optional dual-sided printing module, and save time: Print both sides in a single pass.
