The Fargo Retransfer Film Card Printer is used for HDP5000  reverse transfer printer. It requires a separate dye film ribbon to print on the cards. It is used in tangent with the popular ribbons such as HID Fargo 84051 and HID Fargo 84052.

The Fargo Retransfer Film card printer print up to 1500 cards on one side, or 750 cards on both sides. When printing with a Resin Black panel, the printer will typically use a separate panel for the color and the Resin Black. In that case, this Retransfer Film will print 750 single sided cards or 500 double sided cards with color on the front and black only on the back of the cards.

This ribbon is for a retransfer printer, which initially prints the image onto a film ribbon, then transfers the film onto the card. For this reason, there is no overlay panel on the dye film ribbon because the transfer film acts as an overlay panel.

The retransfer printers is different from direct-to-card DTC printers. Firstly, the image is printed onto a transparent film (dye film ribbon), and then this film is transferred onto the card surface using heat and pressure.

The transfer film acts as an overlay panel in this process, providing a protective layer over the printed image without the need for a separate overlay panel on the ribbon and often results in higher print quality and better durability for the printed cards.
