Photo-quality over-the-edge retransfer printing

Unlike the standard dye sublimation process, your card design is first printed on a clear film; that film is then adhered to the card surface. This process gives you a higher definition print quality and allows you to print successfully even on smart cards with uneven surfaces. It also gives you additional card durability and tamper-resistance so the cards will last longer.

Secure ID Cards with Magicard HoloKote

The Ultima prints a secure watermark across the face of every card– the first reverse transfer printer to offer this.

Choose from 10 standard patterns of Secure HoloKote®, or create your own custom image as a watermark. UV print option also available.

Backed by the industry’s best 3 year warranty*

3 years MagiCoverPlus or 250,000 panels limited manufacturer’s warranty covering electronic/electrical failure and bad workmanship. A loan printer will be provided should the above situation occur and Technical Support are unable to resolve the problem (UK, EU and North America only).
