Datacard FP65i Financial Card Printer


The Datacard® FP65i™ financial card printer instantly issues new and replacement credit, debit and gift cards, minimizing cardholder wait-time and reducing the risk of lost or stolen cards.
On-demand issuance is an ideal way to expedite card usage, increase cardholder loyalty and help reduce operating costs.
  • Give customers immediate purchasing power.
  • Minimize the costs of centralized issuance and mailing.
  • Protect cards with patented rear indent printing and other security features. 


Secure indent printing
Reduce the risk of fraud with rear indent print capabilities, making cards more difficult to reproduce and counterfeit.

ISO IAT magnetic stripe encoding
Keep sensitive magnetic stripe and indent data secure during transmission across the network or USB cable with your choice of 3DES or AES-128 encryption. The printer driver and firmware work together to encrypt magnetic stripe data, allowing seamless and secure card issuance.

Full-color or single-color imaging
Create unique full-color card designs for maximum impact, or use a single-color ribbon to personalize preprinted cards.

Intelligent printer driver
Make daily tasks easier with a sophisticated printer driver. It automatically adjusts its settings for new ribbons. It also allows operators to fine-tune quality with image and color controls, monitor diagnostics, perform tests and connect to an online help center.


Rear Indent Printing
Incorporate additional security with zero-to 9 character rear indent printing with locking enclosure

Smart card personalization (factory install or field upgrade)
Choose the dual contact/contactless reader to personalize smart cards.

Printer-PC security software
This feature disables printing if the printer is connected to any PC that is not the designated host PC, so the printer cannot print cards if it is stolen.

Hardware lock system
Prevent theft of supply items with optional locks for the input hopper, cover and rear enclosure.

Security lock
Securely attach the printer to a workstation with the Kensington® cable lock.

Combine with Datacard® CardWizard® issuance software and create a flexible instant issuance environment that can easily adapt to your needs.
