Magicard Ultima features

Powered by a high-grade processing unit with an impressive array of features, Ultima is ideal for the localised or centralised issue of high-volumes of secure smart cards.


Photo-quality over-the-edge retransfer printing. Unlike the standard dye sublimation process, your card design is first printed on a clear film; that film is then adhered to the card surface. This process gives you a higher definition print quality and allows you to print successfully even on smart cards with uneven surfaces.


The Ultima prints a secure watermark across the face of every card– the first reverse transfer printer to offer this. Choose from 10 standard patterns of Secure HoloKote®, or create your own custom image as a watermark. UV print option also available.


The retransfer process gives you additional card durability and tamper-resistance so the cards will last longer.
