The Magicard Helix is the first ever desktop card printer to feature an interactive touch-screen interface.
Visual indicators show connectivity, temperature and how many prints are remaining on the ribbons, film, and laminate. A preview screen on the Helix during printing shows the exact card being personalized and its progress through the print cycle. The intuitive interface makes it easy to change settings, with additional help provided through animated video sequences.
The Magicard Helix also features Magicard Holokote technology that is unique to only Magicard card printers. And the Helix marks the first time a retransfer card printer is equipped with Holokote. HoloKote is a security watermark can be printed across the card surface without any need for additional supplies. This feature is a great substitute over more expensive laminating printer options. A choice of 4 generic HoloKote images and 1 generic HoloKote Flex (“Flexible” image placement) designs are selectable from the printer driver. For added security, the Custom HoloKote option (ordered separately) enables customization of the watermark to a custom logo or security image of your choice.
