HID Fargo INK1000 Product Review

The first of its kind, the INK1000 is a highly specialised thermal inkjet printer delivering 600 dpi x 1200 dpi print quality. The Specialised printer design includes card heating technology to allow improved acceptance/adherence of ink to card substrate and aid in rapid drying. Cards are ready to be issued straight from print.

Key Printer Features

Operating System

Windows® printer driver compatible with Windows 10 / 7.

Print Quality

Unlike all direct to card printers the INK100 allows you to print true edge-to edge card coverage without white borders and you can print large block colours without blemishes or misprints. At 600 x 1200 dpi, the HID Fargo INK1000 provides much higher resolution that many desktop printers simply can’t match.


Sharper, crisper images and text – Due to its high resolution, the composite black created by the HID FARGO INK1000 can accurately reproduce even complex characters, such as Kanji, Arabic and Cyrillic.


As the INK100 uses snap-in ink cartridges as opposed to ribbon, there are far less parts involved in the print process meaning a lower % of any kind of technical issue where support maybe required.

Ease of Use

As easy to use as a homebased inkjet paper printer. Setup and installation are quick and easy with your first batch of cards ready to print in minutes.


The printer has an optional OMNIKEY 5127CK-Mini card encoding module that can be added. This can be used for:

  • Cashless vending
  • Time and attendance
  • Gift / Loyalty cards using a QR code

Card Types

Compatible with:

  • Standard PVC card types
  • PVC
  • Press polished PVC
  • Composite (PET/PVC with PVC as an outer layer)
  • Laminated PVC.
  • All access control cards with a chip and raised surface

The joy is you don’t need to order expensive cards to work with this printer.


The printer easily fits on countertop or within office environments where counter/desk space for card production and issuance is limited. Its small footprint means workspaces remain uncluttered and there are no cords on show.

GDPR Compliant

An added bonus is the printer is GDPR compliant. As no used ribbon panel is inside the printer, no sensitive employee data is left as a trail or being visible. That’s one less thing to worry about.

Expert Verdict

The first of its kind to offer high quality ID card printing through an inkjet system, the Fargo INK1000 is ideal for cost-conscious small businesses and schools of all sizes that need to print high quality corporate and visitor badges, gift and loyalty cards, or student and faculty IDs. With HID’s exclusive inkjet printing technology, this printer delivers high definition, true edge-to-edge printing while eliminating the hassles of print ribbons or the need for specialized cards. Easy-to-install, snap-in ink cartridges contain specially formulated inks that naturally adhere to standard, off-the-shelf PVC and composite cards – and unlike traditional, complicated Direct-to-Card offerings, the Fargo INK1000 is easy to use and maintain. Put simply, it's as easy to use as your home office printer!
