Its wide colour spectrum and enhanced security will allow you to protect and secure your business or organisation. The Magicard K is one of our most durable and reliable printers to date.

It has been designed to facilitate mounting close to other mechanisms and access points, reducing the need for additional interfacing modules or attachments to transport cards.

The Magicard K is perhaps the most flexible printer available to operators in the self-service and kiosk markets.

Field test results

As part of the Magicard K’s field testing, several examples of the printer were used within locations ranging from high-street retail outlets toKIOSK Slaes entertainment venues.

During our tests, every customer experienced immediate benefits: for example, in one 30-day period, one kiosk in a single store saw a 550% increase in gift card sales and a further 100% increase in associated in-store spend – customers literally doubled their purchases when using a gift card. Importantly, the financial return from this machine in one month was equivalent to the full purchase price of the kiosk and printer.
