Description  more details

FIPS 201 certified for the personalization of US Government credentials, the Magicard Prima 8 provides a reliable, robust solution for instant issuance in a compact package. Using a retransfer printing process, images are first printed onto a thin film then heat transferred onto the card surface. This produces a high resolution glossy image, printed right over the edge of the card. Includes Magicard's 3 Year MagiCover Plus Warranty!

Magicard Prima 8 Duo (Prima802) features include:

  • Edge-to-edge dual-sided printing
  • 100 card hopper and 100 card stacker for batch printing
  • Print speed up to 100 cards per hour single sided (YMCK)
  • Printer Interfaces: USB (2.0) Full-Speed (12Mbps) and Hi-Speed (480Mbps). 10BASE-T/100BASE-TX Ethernet
  • Fully compatible with Windows 10, 8.1, 8, 7(SP1), both 32 and 64bit, Windows Server 2016 (64 bit) / 2012 (64 bit) / 2008 R2 (SP1) (64 bit) / 2003 R2 (SP2) (32 bit)


Customizable Stealth Security
A special dye sublimation Ultra Violet (UV) ribbon can be used with the Prima 8 for the printing of invisible photographs, logos, text or symbols when issuing high security cards. The UV ink is not detectable to the naked eye, but is only visible with the use of a UV light source. This special YMCK-UV ribbon offers an affordable yet still highly secure feature to decrease susceptibility to counterfeiting.

Trusted Electronic Security
The Magicard Prima 8 can be equipped with a range of card encoding devices to write secure electronic data to cards at the point of issuance. Smart card encoding options include contact chip, MIFARE®, DESFire® and iClass®. Specialist high-security encoders, such as EMV accredited devices, can also be fitted for the in-line personalisation of payment cards. The Prima 8 can also be supplied with a magnetic stripe encoder built-in.

The Magicard Prima 8 secures card issuance with a combination of inline and post-printing options. Ultraviolet (UV) images or text, printed inline, can be augmented with overlaminates for added durability and security – including standard and customised holographic options. A logical printer lock is fitted as standard.

High reliability and a market-leading 3 year warranty help ensure the Magicard Prima 8 is trusted worldwide for high-level secure card issuance projects – including drivers’ licenses, secure travel passes and localised issuance of payment cards. It is FIPS 201 compliant and on the GSA Approved Product List. 

Ease of integration is facilitated by both USB and Ethernet interfaces, with magnetic stripe and a range of smart card encoding options all supported. An inline laminator can easily be added with connectivity enabled via infrared (IR). 

Optional - 600 dpi high resolution printing
The ultra high resolution of 600dpi enables the printing of secure microtext and CJK characters down to a 1.3 point size. Fine-lines and detailed, secure graphical elements can be printed in photo quality, right over the edge of the card.
