Magicard Prima 8 Dual Sided Retransfer ID Card Printer Description

Ultra high resolution printer for secure card issuance


The Magicard Prima 8 secures card issuance with a combination of inline and post-printing options. Ultraviolet (UV) images or text, printed inline, can be augmented with overlaminates for added durability and security – including standard and customised holographic options. A logical printer lock is fitted as standard.

Optional - 600 dpi high resolution printing

The ultra high resolution of 600dpi enables the printing of secure microtext and CJK characters down to a 1.3 point size. Fine-lines and detailed, secure graphical elements can be printed in photo quality, right over the edge of the card.


High reliability and a market-leading 3 year warranty help ensure the Magicard Prima 8 is trusted worldwide for high-level secure card issuance projects – including drivers’ licenses, secure travel passes and localised issuance of payment cards. It is FIPS 201 compliant and on the GSA Approved Product List.


Ease of integration is facilitated by both USB and Ethernet interfaces, with magnetic stripe and a range of smart card encoding options all supported. An inline laminator can easily be added with connectivity enabled via infrared (IR).
