Magicard 300 – Product Features

High quality – The Magicard 300 offers a wide color spectrum and prints at 300 x 300 dpi – great for photographs on ID cards and more accurate depiction of corporate logos and other images.

Easy to use – to get you up and running quickly and easily, the Magicard 300 integrates with existing network infrastructure ‘out of the box’ via USB, minimizing set-up time and requiring little technical knowledge.

Flexible – batch print with the interchangeable 100-card feeder or print one-offs or rewritable cards with the hand-feeder. Upgrade a single-sided Magicard 300 to double-sided printing through the electronic upgrade kit.

Efficient – The Magicard 300’s firmware analyses the colors sent by the driver and the film type fitted and prints the panels in a sequence so that film panels are not wasted.

Resilient – Built with high performance purpose-built materials and advanced components, the Magicard 300 is designed and manufactured at Magicard’s center of excellence for manufacturing in the UK and is backed by 24/7 Technical Support and warranty.

Fast speeds – each full color, single-sided card, with HoloKote®, can be printed in under 23 seconds while a resin-only version takes fewer than 6 seconds.

Updates and upgrades – The Magicard 300 is easy to keep up-to-date with the latest features and fixes as and when they’re available.

Security Features

Digital shredding – once data has been used for the print job, it is fragmented, rendering it irrecoverable, helping to ensure the Magicard 300 is not a repository for data.

Anti-fraud – the Magicard 300 has the ability to print a customizable HoloKote® watermark on every card. Each device has the built-in ability to receive up to 3 anti-fraud customized HoloKotes® direct to the printer via Magicard’s web tool.
