What's Included

The Magicard Pronto single-sided ID system offers easy-to-use, hand-fed card printing for your on-demand application, and is a great value for companies printing single-sided cards at smaller locations. The Pronto ID card system includes a color ribbon, cards, CloudBadging ID software, and a Credential Cam webcam - everything you need to get started at a great price.

Pronto ID Card Printer

  • Intuitive user-interface
    You'll love how easy the single-sided Magicard Pronto is to set up and operate. The Pronto 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 Pronto 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 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 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 enables or disabled in your printer driver.HoloKote for the Pronto 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.

  • Card Printing Flexibility
    The Pronto offers complete card printing flexibility. Not only can you print standard dye-sublimation and thermal resin cards, the Magicard Pronto is also capable of rewrite printing. Rewrite printing allows you to print, erase and reprint cards for efficiency and cost-savings.

    With the Pronto you can batch print a color design on one side of your cards, remove the ribbon (no ribbon is needed with rewrite printing) and then use the rewrite feature and hand-feed slot to individually print, erase and update information on the other side using Magicard thermal rewritable card stock.

  • Optional encoding
    The Pronto can be ordered with magnetic stripe and/or smart card encoding capabilities so that you can write data to your cards at the same time as printing, and be able to use your cards for more than just photo ID. (Add this feature to your printer within the Options tab.)

    • CloudBadging ID Software

      • Powerful cloud-based software in a user-friendly package
        Included with your Rio Pro single-sided system, CloudBadging is an an cloud-based ID card software that goes beyond traditional ID badge management software by providing a secure, cloud-based workspace for individuals or teams to create, manage, and print ID badges - maximizing productivity and performance for everyone. CloudBadging provides you with quick, simple card design and printing tools that are accessible from any internet connective device with a modern web browser, no matter where you are located. (You may change your choice of software within the Options tab.)

      Credential Cam Digital Photo ID Webcam

      • Plug and play easy in capturing ID photos
        With its five layer glass lens and Autosmart facetracking, the Credential Cam included with the Magicard Pronto system is optimized for capturing ID photos, and works exceptionally well for all card printing applications. The camera is designed to simply plug and play; within minutes you will have quality images on your photo ID badges. (You may upgrade to your choice of camera within the Options tab.)
