Magicard Prima 3 Uno ID Card Printer Single-sided - DISCONTINUED


Every order is protected by the IDW Care Promise

The Magicard Prima 3 Uno printer is an ideal choice for producing top quality, single-sided cards.

Advantages of reverse transfer printing. A key advantage of images printed on the Prima 3 Uno reverse transfer printer is the enhanced wear protection. Other advantages include excellent print quality and true over-the-edge printing, the ability to print cards with uneven surfaces (e.g., technology cards with embedded electronics), and the ability to print onto non-PVC cards (e.g., ABS, PET, PVH and Polycarbonate).

Easy-to-use. The Magicard Prima 3 Uno printer features a user-friendly graphical driver that provides auto ribbon detection, auto-cleaning prompts and ribbon status level updates. Its LCD panel changes color based on printer status messages, prompts and troubleshooting. The Prima 3 Uno also offers convenient front access for ribbon and card supplies loading.

Available lamination.Add more durability and increased security to your personalized cards with the single-sided Magicard Prima 3 In-line Lamination Unit (ILU). This laminator can also be purchased with the optional Magicard Prima 3 Turnover Unit to perform duplex (or two-sided) lamination.

A range of options.Create feature-rich cards with the Magicard Prima 3 Uno printer by selecting from a variety of magnetic stripe and smart card encoding choices. The Prima 3 Uno is just the start of a complete line of reverse transfer printing offered by Magicard, and can easily be upgraded as your needs grow. For example, you can upgrade at any time for duplex printing(Prima 3 Duo), high speed duplex printing(Prima 3 Duo Plus), or high speed duplex printing with the ability to connect up to seven printers for high volume card production(Prima 3 High Output). You also have the opportunity to add magnetic stripe encoding any time you need it.

Magicard's exclusive warranty coverage.Included as standard when purchasing a Magicard Prima 3 Uno printer is the exclusive Magicard UltraCoverPlus warranty. This warranty provides three years of full printer coverage with a loaner printer service, plus lifetime printhead coverage.
