DTC500 Model Specifications

This generation of card printers will forever change your expectations of compact, desktop card printers.

Whether you print membership cards, employee access cards, student IDs or loyalty cards, these futuristic FARGO Card Printers will impress you with their rugged reliability, ease-of-use and quiet performance!

Just look at some of the things you get. Start with dual, 100-card input hoppers on the DTC515 and DTC525 models.

This includes a card-protecting lockable hopper, and FARGO's exclusive SmartGuard™ printer security, and SmartShield™ card security technology.
