The Magicard Pronto printer offers easy-to-use, hand-fed card printing for your on-demand printing application, and is a great value for companies printing cards at smaller locations.

Product Features:

  • Intuitive user interface
    You'll love how easy the Magicard Pronto printer is to set up and operate. The Magicard Pronto ID card printer features a 3-color LED display for easy-to-understand printer status and prompts. Its UltraDriver printer driver is available in several languages and supports Microsoft Windows. Plus, the Magicard Pronto ID card printer driver allows you to fine-tune controls, such as image sharpening and coloring, to get the best results.

  • Small and portable
    The compact, lightweight design of the Pronto printer is suited for any desktop and travels nicely.

  • Card security made easy and inexpensive
    Magicard's exclusive HoloKote feature allows you to print a watermark with the Pronto printer without any added costs. The watermark is printed during the normal card printing cycle using the O panel of a standard color ribbon - there is no need to purchase expensive holographic lamination. The HoloKote watermark becomes visible when the card is viewed at an angle and can be easily enabled or disabled in your printer driver.

    HoloKote for the Magicard Pronto 3649-0001 is available in four patterns: globes, keys, interlocking squares, or waves. When using the HoloKote option, the pattern of your choice is printed repeatedly across your card.When HoloKote is used along with Magicard HoloPatch cards, one area of the watermark becomes a high-visibility security seal with an appearance similar to a holographic patch, at a fraction of the cost.

  • Optional magnetic stripe encoding
    The Magicard Pronto printer can be ordered with magnetic stripe encoding capabilities so that you can write data to your cards at the same time as printing, as be able to your cards for more than just photo IDs.
