Integrated ID Partners with HID Global to offer two new ID Printer Solutions 

As identification card printers are becoming more streamlined and versatile, companies will begin introducing products that will more accommodate the consumer needs for mobility, efficiency, and expansion. Integrated ID Systems, a Platinum Advantage Partner of HID Global, is one of these companies focusing on new products. They recently introduced two new ID printer options for customers that far exceed the current standards of ID printers and offer a wealth of new enhancements and expansion opportunity.

With the HID® ELEMENT industrial card printer/encoder/laser engraver, HID Global delivers the most reliable, cost-effective, high-volume ID and financial card issuance printer available in the industry. Desktop-based yet heavy-duty, HID ELEMENT is especially suited for the high-cycle requirements of large government ID card programs, financial institutions, laborious service bureau conditions and demanding large enterprise environments. Modular and scalable, HID ELEMENT offers high-resolution, UV inkjet printing, optional laser engraving and an array of encoding options to meet a broad range of credential program requirements. As easy to use as standard Direct-to-Card (DTC) and retransfer desktop printers but with the modularity, power and throughput speed to rival central issuance, HID ELEMENT opens up a whole new world of possibilities for credential issuance at the desktop. High-yield, easy-to-use ink cartridges glide right in and snap into place effortlessly. Six configurable ink channels support full color or monochrome configurations with clear ink overlay options. High-security fluorescents and custom colors are also available. Leveraging the HID ELEMENT laser engraving system, unique identifying data or images are engraved into the card body for tamper-proof, highly durable personalization. Beyond standard black marking and highly defined grayscale imaging, the HID ELEMENT laser engraving system can optionally be used in conjunction with the UV ink printing system — providing the ability to combine laser with color to accommodate even the most unique card designs. With its reliable operation, minimal maintenance, highly-configurable functionality, scalable through-put and lowest total cost of ownership (TCO) in the industry — HID ELEMENT is the next evolution in superior-quality, high-volume card personalization and issuance.

HID Fargo INK1000 Printer

Bringing the simplicity and affordability of inkjet printing to personalized cards and IDs, the HID FARGO INK1000 is unmatched in its ease-of-use and offers a lower TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) than most card printers in the industry. Ultra-reliable and low maintenance, the HID FARGO INK1000 features exclusive inkjet printing technology, eliminating the hassles of print ribbons or the need for specialized card media. Easy-to-install, snap-in ink cartridges contain specially formulated inks that naturally adhere to standard, off-the-shelf PVC and composite cards. Because inks are inherently UV-stable, images and text exhibit improved fade resistance compared to DTC-printed cards—even without expensive overlay protectants. Depending on the complexity of your card design, a single ink cartridge has the potential to produce hundreds more cards than would be possible with print ribbons—bringing your card designs to life with significantly less waste and at a fraction of the cost! With its high 600 dpi x 1200 dpi resolution, images are sharp and brilliant—and text and barcodes are crisply defined. The INK1000 also offers true edge-to-edge printing to accommodate full card coverage designs, eliminating those pesky white border edges left behind by standard Direct-to-Card printers. What’s more, its small footprint with same-side input and output hoppers and intuitive operation make the INK1000 perfect for any office environment. It’s as simple to use as the inkjet printer in your home or office! Easy-to-use, affordable, and dependable, the HID FARGO INK1000 featuring exclusive inkjet technology is the next revolution in card printing.
