The SMART 51S is the latest 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.
Taking the place of the trusty SMART 50S, the 51S improves on its predecessor in every way. The SMART 51S 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.
The SMART 51S offers print speeds of up to 720 monochrome cards per hour or 212 YMCKO cards per hour, allowing you to breeze through most badging operations. An input hopper of up to 200 cards allows you to "set it and forget," saving time and hassle.
This variation of the SMART 51S offers a unique wrinkle: it's able to print on CR79-sized cards, as well as the standard CR80-sized cards. CR79 cards are slightly smaller than CR80 cards, measuring approximately 2.1" x 3.3".
This SKU is a full printer kit. It features a SMART 51S CR79-compatible printer, a YMCKO ribbon, 100 PVC cards and a long cleaning card.
