The patented Magicard HoloKote® anti-forgery card protection eliminates the threat from fake IDs.
HoloKote is an anti-copying watermark printed across the entire card surface. When the card is tilted, the HoloKote watermark provides visual authentication. There is no additional cost involved in printing HoloKote cards.
How HoloKote is printed onto the card.
Color cards are printed using a thermal transfer YMCKO dye film. After the color image has been printed onto the card, the clear Overcoat panel is applied to protect the image from fading or scratching. Magicard’s thermal transfer printer models have a unique facility called HoloKote for frosting a security watermark into the clear overcoat during the print process. This is a patented feature and unlike most other security logos, it involves no extra cost of printing.
Available on all Magicard printers (except the Prima), the built-in HoloKote watermark is a user option controlled by driver settings.
HoloPatch + HoloKote = For greater visual security at an affordable price!
Completely unique to Magicard, HoloPatch cards have a highly reflective gold ‘super diffuser’ seal.
How do HoloKote and HoloPatch work together as a visible security feature?
The unique HoloKote feature is daylight visible by tilting the card to view the watermark pattern.
When used with the optional Magicard HoloPatch card stock, one of the HoloKote logos is highlighted by a highly reflective gold 'super-diffuser' patch, making the logo clearly visible under all lighting conditions. HoloKote with HoloPatch has a similar appearance to credit card hologram seals. It provides a distance visible security mark allowing a security guard or colleague to easily verify badge authenticity from a distance of six feet or more. It’s the ultimate in card security simplicity.
Edge to Edge Printing
High quality 300dpi images, with true colors, right to the edge of the card.
All Magicard printers are designed to print cards edge to edge.
Retransfer printing technology offers the best edge to edge printing quality because of the method of applying the image onto the card thanks to a ‘soft roller’ that wraps the image around the edges of the card.
With direct printing onto the card, the quality of edge to edge printing depends on the quality of the card. The cards used need to be flat and have clean edges.
Mag Stripe Encoding
A dual coercivity HiCo/LoCo magnetic stripe encoder option which offers encoding on all three tracks with complete user format flexibility.
Rewritable cards have one glossy side in PVC for colour/monochrome dye sublimation printing and a matte finish rewritable side with a blue or black thermo chromic material that can be printed for up to 500 rewrite cycles.
All Magicard ID printers offer combi encoding as an option.
This combined smartcard and proximity card encoder includes Contact Chip, Mifare, Desfire and iClass capability.
