A new low cost, compact card printer from Fargo called the Persona C30 is now available. The C30 is designed for environments needing “high-quality plastic ID cards without high-security features.”

New Persona C30 Card Printer Features Convenience and Simplicity

Single- or Dual-Sided Printer Offers Outstanding Value

Minneapolis, MN (September 9, 2005) – Fargo Electronics, Inc. (NASDAQ: FRGO), a global leader in secure technologies for card identity systems, today announced the introduction of the Persona C30 Card Printer. The Persona C30 is designed for organizations such as K-12 schools, small corporations, clubs or recreation facilities that need high-quality plastic ID cards without high-security features. The C30 will be marketed under the Persona by Fargo brand.

The C30 has been designed with customer convenience in mind. An easy-loading, all-in-one ribbon cartridge saves time and eliminates the mess and expense of torn, wasted ribbons. In addition, a card cleaning roller is integrated into the ribbon cartridge to assure clean card stock and high-quality prints.

With a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price of $2295 for single-sided printing, and $3995 for dual-sided printing, the C30 is an affordable entry-level printer. An optional magnetic stripe encoder is also available.

“The Persona C30 provides performance and reliability in a card printer at a much higher level than its price would suggest,” said Andy Vander Woude, Fargo’s director of product marketing for secure printer/encoders. “With its convenience features and two-year warranty, the C30 is an outstanding value.”
