Magicard Helix Double Sided ID Card Printer Description

Secure photo-quality printing via an intuitive interface

Best quality printing

The Magicard Helix uses a retransfer printing process, where onto the card surface. This produces a high resolution photo quality image, printed over the edge of the card.


An intuitive touch screen, with print preview and supplies indicators, provides an easy-to-use interface to an advanced and durable print engine, powered by a high grade processing unit and boasting an impressive array of features.

Built-in security

Helix is the World's first retransfer printer with built-in visual security, with the ability to apply a secure watermark to each card during the retransfer process. This feature also exploits the wavelengths of the film to fluoresce under UV lighting conditions.

High Capacity

High capacity consumables (1000 prints) and hoppers, combined with a range of encoding options to write secure electronic data to the card, make the Helix ideal for high volume localised or centralised issuance of secure smart cards.
