Magicard Prima 3 Duo ID Card Printer Dual-Sided - DISCONTINUED

Every order is protected by the IDW Care Promise

The Magicard Prima 3 Duo printer is an ideal choice for producing top quality, duplex (two-sided) cards.

Advantages of reverse transfer printing. A key advantage of images printed on the Prima 3 Duo 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 Duo 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 Duo offers convenient front access for ribbon and card supplies loading. Plus, you can replenish your card supply while the Prima 3 Duo is in operation.

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 lamination.

A range of options.Create feature-rich cards with the Magicard Prima 3 Duo printer by selecting from a variety of magnetic stripe and smart card encoding choices. The Prima 3 Duo is just one in 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 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 Duo 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.
