The Fargo C50 is a reliable, portable, and, most importantly, easy-to-use card printer. The C50 is the right solution for school badges, visitor ids, membership cards wherever you need them. Using its plug-and-play design, one can go from unpacking to printing in under five minutes.
Easy, Compact, Portable
The Fargo C50 is easy to pick-up -- figuratively and literally. The system reflects on-going changes with color-changing buttons making it simple to understand. The printer is also fairly small at about 7lbs, good for temporary badging setups at schools or other facilities.
Direct-to-card edge-to-edge Printing
When using the standard CR-80 or adhesive CR-79 id cards, the C50 has edge-to-edge printing getting the most use out of the area of the card.
An all-in-one printer ribbon and card cleaning cartridge for the C50 makes maintenance extremely simple.
