Magicard HoloKote
When you purchase a Magicard printer you’re also making an investment in the security of your ID card program. Each printer comes with the built-in HoloKote watermark system, a feature unique to all Magicard printers. HoloKote is a secure watermark that is applied to the surface of each printed card at no additional cost increasing the visual authenticity of your ID badges while reducing the risk of illegal duplication and counterfeiting.
During the printing process, HoloKote applies a distinctive watermark pattern across the surface of each ID card. For most Magicard printers there are four fixed HoloKote patterns that can be selected from each printer’s drivers: rings, globes, keys, and waves. When combined with Magicard HoloPatch cards, one section of the secure watermark is highlighted to create a high-visibility security seal, increasing the visual security for each card.
More advanced Magicard printers including the brand new Magicard Rio Pro support the Custom HoloKote Key and HoloKote FLEX. With the Custom HoloKote Key you can easily create your own custom watermark with text or your organization’s logo. HoloKote FLEX allows you to print that custom watermark at any size or location across the surface of the card.
