The simple way to personalize photo ID cards.

The Fargo Persona C30 is designed for simple, reliable and affordable ID card printing. The Persona C30 delivers sharp, colorful, durable plastic ID cards for hundreds of applications, such as company and school IDs, access cards, and membership and customer loyalty cards. The Persona C30 features an easy front-loading, all-in-one ribbon cartridge that saves time and eliminates the mess and expense of torn, wasted ribbons. No feeding is required, plus the integrated card cleaning roller keeps card stock clean and is changed every time you change the ribbon. The Persona C30 features dye-sublimation / resin thermal transfer 300 dpi printing, a 7-second per card speed for basic black text (27 seconds for full YMCKO printing), plus a user-upgradeable magnetic stripe encoder and a convenient USB interface. The Fargo Persona C30 also features both single- and double-sided printing models - print both front and back in full color.
