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.
Ultra Cover Plus
We are so confident of the quality and robustness of our Professional Series printers, that we offer a full three year UltraCoverPlus warranty in North America, the EU, and selected other countries.
UltraCoverPlus reduces printer downtime by providing a free loan unit until the repaired item has been returned.
We promise to :
Replace without charge a failed print head.
Repair without charge a failed printer.
Provide where necessary a loan unit to replace a printer returned for repair.
Pay for all shipments to you.
UltraCoverPlus goes beyond helping you out when there is a problem. It also means access to our skilled team of Support Engineers, who have more than 5 years experience on average in supporting Magicard printers. They are ready to answer your questions and advise you on getting the best out of your Magicard printer.
With the built-in Ethernet capability on Magicard printers, users obtain greatly enhanced operational efficiency, especially for large facilities with multiple ID card printers such as universities, events organisations, retail and other public venues.
Having multiple printers on the network allows printing to continue while a ribbon is being replaced on one printer. This duplication increases overall system reliability; since any PC can print to any card printer on the network, there can be immediate rollover to working machines in case of technical issues with a PC workstation or a printer.
Card printing flexibility is also substantially increased by network connectivity. For example, a PC workstation creating identification cards can now be located in a different room or in a different building from the card printer. Or, a card printer can be located near high-volume workstations yet be shared by users who only occasionally print cards and who are located in other areas.
With built-in Ethernet, card printer users save time and preserve valuable counter space.
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.
Magicard ID card printers support a wide range of card encoding in the printer.
Mag stripe: A dual coercivity HiCo/LoCo magnetic stripe encoder option which offers encoding on all three tracks with complete user format flexibility.
Chip contact: Optional ISO 7816 internal smart card chip encoding contact station can be combined with the magnetic stripe encoder option (Specify/MS).
Contactless – Various contactless smart card encoding options are available: MiFAre, HID i-Class, Inside Technologies, Desfire options available.
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.
Custom HoloKote is a secure custom HoloKote watermark printed in a grid pattern across your card. Compared to custom holographic laminates, it's a mere fraction of the cost, and available in days, not months. For a modest set-up fee and no extra costs in consumables, you can print as many cards as you like with your Custom HoloKote design. Printed with your Magicard Rio 2e, Tango 2e or Rio Pro printer, Custom HoloKote is delivered in a box containing a CD and RFID card. Simply upload your custom graphic to the firmware of your printer (from the CD). Then drop your unique RFID card (also provided) into a slot in the printer and it acts as a key to enable the secure logo/graphic to be printed.

An ICC profile is a set of data that characterizes a color input or output device, or a color space, according to standards promulgated by the International Color Consortium (ICC).
Magicard's ICC profiles ensure that color attributes of the source image are mapped accurately to the printer.
This process underpins the superior printing and colour reproduction qualities of the Magicard Rio Pro.
