Fargo DTC4250e Direct-to-Card Printer


The HID Fargo DTC4250e is an impressive printer, designed to handle small to medium-sized locations. The printer, like the DTC1250e, is designed to be completely modular (and mostly field upgradable), so that it can easily adapt to your printing requirements, or environment. The Fargo DTC4250 is a part of HID’s ecosystem, and with that, has been officially approved to work with a variety of different access control systems and other third party systems. 

Unlike the DTC1250e, or other entry level printers, the DTC4250e has a digital display, which allows the end user to quickly determine what is the printer requires. 

The DTC4250e primarily uses the EZ cartridges, so when the ribbons are changed, it’s easy to pop in a new ribbon and cleaning roller, making supply changes easier on the end user. The DTC4250e also has more specialized ribbons available, including UV ribbons, ½ panel ribbons, and a large variety of monochrome colour ribbons.

The DTC4250e has been deployed to a variety of different environments, and we’ve had minimal technical support requirements for the unit.  Regular cleaning helps keep your printer running well, reducing the time potentially needed for technical support. All printers purchased from E-CARD come with lifetime phone and email support, above and beyond the manufacturer warranty provided with the printer (and supported by E-CARD).
