Magicard Digital Shredding

Digital shredding™ is a new important feature developed to accommodate GDPR regulations. Once data has been used for a print job, it is fragmented and rendered irrecoverable. This will ensure that your machine is not responsible for a data breach as all personal data is destroyed after use.

Holokote® is a transparent image that is printed onto the clear overlay film on the ribbon during the printing process. This creates a secure watermark only seen in certain light, helping to reduce the risk of cloning and making counterfeited cards easy to spot. With custom Holokote®, you can create up to 10 personalised designs such as text, images or logos.

Peace of Mind Warranty

  • 3 year warranty: covers poor workmanship, manufacturing defects and component failure – conditional with use of approved Magicard consumables and observance of correct maintenance and frequency. Magicard recommend cleaning after each dye film change, but as a minimum, you will be prompted by your printer to perform a cleaning process and change tacky roller at every 700 cards.  The printer’s counter is used as a reference.
  • If your printer is faulty with 6 weeks of delivery then it will be replaced with a new one.
  • 50,000 card (250,000 panel) print head warranty.
  • Optional 1 year warranty extension (only at purchase contact us for more details).
