The Magicard Helix is the first ever desktop card printer to feature an interactive touch-screen interface. Visual indicators show connectivity, temperature and how many prints are remaining on all consumables. A preview screen during printing shows the exact card being personalized and its progress through the print cycle. The intuitive interface makes it easy to change settings, with additional help provided through animated video sequences. The Magicard Helix uses a retransfer printing process, where images are first printed onto a thin film then heat transferred onto the card surface. This produces high resolution photo quality image, printed right over the edge of the card. By printing on to this controlled substrate, print imperfections due to irregular card surfaces or around embedded card chips are eliminated.
