Fargo DTC1250e ID Card Printer
The Fargo DTC1250 Card Printer is an entry-level color card printer capable of one-sided (standard) or two-sided (optional) card printing. While designed for small businesses, schools, and local governments with a limited budget, it is one of the fastest printers in its class and delivers high quality output with simple plug-and-play setup.

In addition to the dual-sided card printing module, the DTC1250 can be upgraded from its base model with a magnetic stripe encoder module, smart card encoder module, or Ethernet module. This printer prints on CR-80 or CR-79 cards with dye-sublimation technology and utilizes Fargo’s Direct-To-Card print technology.

The Fargo DTC1250 Card Printer comes standard with a 3-year warranty.
