DTC400 Overview

The easiest way to personalize secure ID cards

Fargo DTC400 Series Direct-to-Card Printer/Encoders make issuing ID cards a remarkably simple, smooth and virtually maintenance-free process. And their capabilities expand with your needs.

When you use our Windows®-compatible Print Security Suite software, the DTC400 Series is not only the most user-friendly in its class, it’s also the most secure. Print Security Suite gives you control over printer access, notifies you of unauthorized printing, adds covert security elements to cards, and more.
