Employee ID Cards

Employee identification cards range from standard photo IDs to multi-use cards such as Employee and Visitor Identification, Building Access, Network Login, Time / Attendance and Payroll systems. The Magicard printer family contains everything you need to create your required cards. They also offer complete protection against counterfeiting through the use of either a hologram laminate, or by the use of the unique, low cost, HoloKote watermark technology.
