- Innovative professional-grade card printing
A true mid-range printer, the DTC1500 unites the best of value class and professional class printer features. It’s compact in size and competitively priced, yet fully equipped to excel in professional-grade card printing applications. The DTC1500 RI-FG-51400 features built-in Ethernet, 100-card capacity input & output hoppers, and print speeds as fast as 6 seconds per card (for monochrome) and 16 seconds (for YMCKO). Plus, it includes Fargo’s new resin threshold feature to allow for “True-K” printing (more crisp, true black text and barcodes).
- Superior data security with resin scramble
The DTC1500 RI-FG-51400 single-sided printer features AES 256 data encryption for data security, as well as printer password protection for secure operation. It also offers Fargo’s new resin scramble feature, giving you the power to essentially erase resin printed data that could otherwise be extracted from the K panel of your used YMCKO, YMCKOK, YMCKK, or YMCKOKO ribbons.
- Includes Fargo’s new secure watermarking technology
With the DTC1500, there’s no need to invest in foil cards or holographic overlaminate to achieve a secure watermark on your credentials. This is Fargo’s first model to offer this built-in visual security feature, the DTC1500 card printer allows you to add a holographic-like image, text field, or logo to your cards during the standard printing process and at no additional cost.
Simply select the watermark feature in the ‘Overlay’ tab of your printer driver and use a bitmap image to designate areas where the “O” panel of the YMCKO ribbon should be left open to accommodate your watermark.
- Energy-efficient operation and low-cost consumables
GreenCircle® certified for its energy efficiency, the Fargo DTC1500 printer accepts Fargo’s eco-friendly (ECO) refill ribbons and boasts a low cost-per-card compared to other mid-range printers in its class. Enjoy low-cost, high-capacity full- and half-panel ribbons for a lower total cost of ownership.
- User-installable field upgrades to support your growing business
Engineered to satisfy virtually any application, the DTC1500 is highly customizable – at the time of factory configuration and after.

Great for growing businesses, the DTC1500 allows you to add encoding, duplex printing, lamination, and/or wi-fi connectivity to your printer at any time – and without sending your printer to back the manufacturer for the alteration.
