The next generation FARGO® HDPii Plus Card Printer/Encoder prints and encodes the newest generation of financial cards with no embossed text and, increasingly, a contact or contactless smart chip inside. By giving institutions the ability to create a personal connection by physically handing custom cards to customers, the HDPii Plus Financial Card Printer/Encoder raises customer service and loyalty to a new level. Personalization helps to dramatically lessen the time to the first card transaction. Attract new customers and build your business with highly customized designs for credit, debit, prepaid and retail gift cards. High Definition Printing™ (HDP®) retransfer technology prints photo-quality continuous-tone images over the card edge with vibrant colors and sharp text and graphics. Card images are sealed on the underside of HDP Film for increased durability and fraud protection, and replicate the look of preprinted cards.
