Product Description

The SMART 51 is a direct-to-card printer from IDP®, a leader in affordable and professional card-printing solutions. This is a great card printer for medium-sized badging operations and for projects like printing student ID cards, employee badges for small offices and more.

The SMART 51 uses dye sublimation printing to print edge-to-edge images and text at a crisp resolution of 300 dpi for a professional look. IDP's FINE™ Imaging Technology guarantees a quality imprint, time after time.
