At the heart of the system is the Magicard Pronto ID card printer. Paired with software and printing supplies, this system has everything you need to get you started on professional ID card printing right out of the box.

The Pronto is well-suited for a range of ID applications including employee and student IDs, membership cards, loyalty cards, and more.

Easy, Low Volume Printing

Each card is hand-fed into the printer and printed individually. It takes just 35 seconds to produce a full-color photo ID, and only 7 seconds to print a monochrome card.

Loaded with intuitive features, the Magicard Pronto is very easy to set up and operate right out of the box. The printer features a color-coded status LED screen, a USB interface and a Microsoft-certified plug-and-play driver.

Secure Cards with Magicard HoloKote

Like most Magicard printers, the Pronto offers a high level of card security. It comes standard with Magicard's patented HoloKote watermark system. With HoloKote, you can apply a secure holographic watermark across the surface of each printed card at no additional cost. HoloKote help to prevent illegal duplication, and also adds an extra layer of protection against everyday wear and tear. Your choice of four HoloKote patterns is selectable from the printer driver.

When used with Magicard HoloPatch cards, one area of the HoloKote watermark is highlighted as a high-visibility security seal.

Pronto Printer Warranty

The Magicard Pronto ID card printer comes with a two year limited manufacturer warranty.

New in AlphaCard ID Suite v11: Enhanced card design wizard, high resolution barcodes, full compatibility with Dymy thermal labels, and improved language options.
