Key Printer Features

Is the Magicard 300 right for you?

The Magicard 300 is a direct-to-card (DTC) printer, ideal for those looking to print a simple card design onto plain plastic cards, not access control cards. With the ability to produce up to 160 cards an hour, the 300 is designed specifically for businesses with medium-sized printing requirements, such as schools and colleges. If this sounds like you, then the 300 is the printer you’ve been looking for. Alternatively, if you need to print onto access control cards or have a more complex design containing block colours, we recommend using Magicard’s retransfer offering, the Magicard Ultima Uno card printer.

Picture-perfect printing. Every time.

Printing professional-looking cards couldn’t be easier. The Magicard 300 offers unrivalled print quality, designed specifically to produce outstanding results, giving the most accurate depictions of photos and corporate logos. HD comes as standard for the 300, ensuring users can print premium-looking cards whenever required.

Setup, print and issue.

Whether it’s your first time printing cards or you’re a card printing connoisseur, the Magicard 300 makes card printing easy for everyone. Set-up is simple, making it entirely user-friendly, even for those with minimal technical knowledge.

Blink and you’ll miss it.

No one wants to sit around waiting for their cards to print – and the Magicard 300 gets that. The printer is designed for extremely fast print speeds, taking only 6 seconds to print a monochrome card and less than 23 seconds to produce a full-colour card. It’s ideal for schools and colleges that require a simple card design and are printing large numbers of cards in a short period of time.

Secure? You bet.

The 300 cuts no corners when it comes to security. Digital shredding™ ensures your data is fragmented and destroyed after a print job, so there’s no risk of any data breaches. Magicard’s HoloKote® watermark can be added to all cards, with a choice of 3 standard designs that give your cards a free layer of visual security.

Design cards in minutes.

When you buy a Magicard 300 card printer through Digital ID, you’ll get EasyBadge Lite design software for free, saving you £195. Please note that EasyBadge is only compatible with Windows and is limited to 100 records. For Mac-compatible design software, we recommend using cardPresso card design software.


The Magicard 300 printer is compatible with high-speed USB 2.0 and ethernet to enable out-of-the-box connection while minimising set-up time. The 300 is compatible with Windows 7, 8, 10 (32 and 64bit). Windows server 2008, 2012, 2016. Mac OS X 10.9.0 upwards. Linux with CUPS support.

Pick a card, any card.

The Magicard 300 prints onto both CR79 and CR80 credit-card sized cards. Easily print on biodegradable PVC, PVC ISO blank cards, self-adhesive, rewritable, paper-based and HoloPatch cards. The only card we wouldn’t advise you to use is an access control card as these cards contain a raised chip and printing over this chip with a direct-to-card printer can cause a blemish to your print, resulting in higher re-issuance costs.

UK-based support on hand.

Manufactured in Weymouth, all Magicard 300 printers come with a three-year MagiCover warranty, and the UK-based Magicard support team are on-hand when you need them.

This warranty includes:

  • 3 year manufacturer warranty
  • 6 week replacement window
  • Optional 1 year warranty extension
  • Tech support accessed via

Magicard 300 – Common FAQs

Q: Can the machine print onto access control cards?

A: We don’t recommend using the 300 to print onto contactless or smart cards as it is a direct-to-card printer. If you will be printing on access control cards, you will need a retransfer printer.

Q: Can the Magicard 300 print on both sides of the card?

A: Yes. The Magicard 300 ID card printer is available in both single and dual-sided models. Thanks to our current offer, you will receive a free upgrade to dual-sided printing with every single-sided option. The double-sided model will automatically be added to your basket.

Q: Are cards and printer ribbons included?

A: Unfortunately not. All consumables are sold separately.

Q: How do I connect the Magicard 300 printer to my computer?

A: You can easily connect the Magicard 300 to your computer with the USB provided or via ethernet connection.

Q: Will the 300 fit on my desk?

A: Produced in a compact size, the Magicard 300 is ideal for an office desk. Its exact dimensions are:

  • 408x215x242mm (including feeder and stacker)
  • 4.98kg weight

Q: How do I clean the 300?

A: We’ve created a short video on how to clean your Magicard 300 printer, which you can watch here.

Q: Can the 300 handle complex designs and block colours?

A: As a DTC printer, the Magicard 300 is suitable for those requiring a simple card design, so block colours isn’t a great option.

Q: Does the Magicard 300 support over-the-edge card printing?

A: Direct-to-card printers do not print right up to the sharp edge of a card, as doing so could damage the printhead. Therefore, a small, plain border is left around the sides of the card surface, to prolong the printer’s lifespan.
