All current Magicard printers offer a unique visual security option called HoloKote™ (excluding the all Prima printer models). HoloKote is a watermark style image that is visible only when the PVC card is held at an angle. The entry level Magicard printer models include a standard image when you purchase the printer (Pronto, Enduro, Enduro Duo). Below is an example of a card printed with HoloKote imaging in the standard “Key” pattern.
In addition to the standard HoloKote patterns, Magicard’s high end printers offer the ability to create a custom HoloKote FLEX™ Key. This upgradable option is available on the Rio2e, Tango2e, and Tango+L printers. The HoloKote FLEX key offers the ability to lock your printer and the ability to create a custom HoloKote image. In the past, the layout of the custom HoloKote image was restricted to a pattern where the image was repeated six times across the card in four rows (see below).
The HoloKote FLEX offers additional flexibility regarding the layout of your customized watermark image. HoloKote FLEX allows you to place a single larger image or company logo anywhere on the card. Below is an example of a card with the HoloKote FLEX custom watermark.
Magicard’s new HoloKote Tool allows customers the ability to create and preview a personalized HoloKote or HoloKote FLEX sample card. It is a great way to see what your logo would look like as a HoloKote image with your own card design.
HoloKote is a cost efficient way to add visual security to your organization’s card. The standard HoloKote images are free. This is possible because the HoloKote image is created during the application of the O panel on a YMCKO or YMCKOK color ribbon. As a result, there are no additional printing costs. If you decide to create a unique HoloKote image with your company logo or desired text, there is a modest one-time set up charge for encrypting your custom artwork on a key.
HoloKote is recommended to government agencies, colleges, universities, ski areas, water parks, amusement parks or any organization looking for a cost efficient way to increase card security for identification or for season passes. For additional information including pricing and artwork requirements, please contact an ID Wholesaler Account Manager.
