The Helix Duo Double-Sided Retransfer Card Printer from Magicard is a desktop card printer that features 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 onto this controlled substrate, print imperfections due to irregular card surfaces or around embedded card chips are eliminated. Equipped with a high grade processing unit, Helix is powered by Magicard's durable print engine and features high capacity consumables (1000 prints) and hoppers (200 cards), making it suitable for high volume localized or even centralized issuance.

Using Magicard's HoloKote security feature, Helix can apply a secure watermark to each card during the retransfer process. This feature also exploits the wavelengths and lens effect of the retransfer film to fluoresce under UV lighting conditions.
