As Australia’s largest Magicard reseller, Wholesale ID recognises the value in creating secure ID cards and badges. Data security is a top concern among the nation’s public agencies and private enterprises, prompting us to deliver one of the industry’s most reputable set of card printers.
Magicard printers deliver the functions necessary to deliver photo ID, membership, integrated circuit (IC), payment and access control cards. No matter what the purpose, these devices don’t leave organisations wanting.
What makes Magicard more secure?
Magicard ID printers use patented HoloKote anti-counterfeiting visual protection features, enabling parties to develop transparent HoloKote security watermarks over card images.
Why do watermarks improve ID badge protection? Watermarking has repeatedly demonstrated its usefulness as a robust security feature. They consist of covert, machine-readable digital data printed as passive images. In short, watermarking protects official documents and ID cards from counterfeiting, substitution or manipulation.
How does it work? All users have to do is enable the HoloKote setting before the printing process commences. Furthermore, you can choose from a number of HoloKote designs, from interlocking rings, Ultra Secure Keys, Square Waves, a Globe Design or even make your company logo the standard watermark.
More than one printer
As Magicard offers multiple printers, we’ve picked the cream of the crop. While each one offers its own unique functions, all of the following devices deliver the same security integration features that have made Magicard so popular among organisations.
The Pronto card printer is an easy-to-use machine, equipped with dye-sublimation ID settings. Between the hand-fed card loading setting and the drop-in dye film function, getting this device up and running is a cinch. The printer offers magnetic stripe and combi encoding options to users.
The Enduro+ delivers flexibility, enabling organisations to hand-feed, batch print and issue rewritable cards. With duplex printing and Ethernet connectivity, the device is a fabulous tool for those in need of database synchronisation. In addition, printer owners can switch seamlessly between single- and double-sided operations.
Welcome to Rio
For those looking for a machine made for the professional world, the Rio Pro ID card printer certainly delivers. While the device offers the chance to create magnetic stripe iterations, users also have the option to develop ID badges with IC chips and contactless capabilities. In addition, organisations can customise the HoloKote watermarks to display official logos or other custom designs.
Designed specifically to produce long plastic cards for accreditation, ticket and product labelling, the Rio Pro Extended allows users to print full colour cards up to 110 millimetres (mm) long. Double- and single-sided printing options are available.
Companies such as banks and credit unions looking to produce secure payment cards will take well to the Rio Pro Secure. This machine creates localised replacement of secure cards instantly, enabling them to satisfy customers’ desires to receive new cards in a timely manner. During the batch printing process, the Rio Pro Secure still retains the smart chip encoding and magnetic stripe integration features favoured by many.
When deciding which card printer is right for you, don’t hesitate to speak with one of our representatives to hear their recommendations. Also, be aware of the warranty lengths specific to each one – some of these models include Magicard’s three-year Ultra Cover Plus protection.
