Both smart card and magnetic stripe encoding modules can be added on as an optional upgrade with ease.
The advanced HoloKote visual security feature is available in four watermark designs and prevents cards being cloned.
This card printer is robust, durable, and built to last.
Vibrant colours and crisp detailed text come as standard with the Enduro3e. The user receives the highest quality of card available in under 30 seconds. Once a card is printed it is dry, scracth free and instantly ready to issue.
The warranty period for the Enduro3E printer is three years; this also includes the print head. Technical support from Digital ID and Magicard are included, and as official Magicard distributors, our technical support team have undertaken extensive training across the range of all Magicard printers and can assist you with any post sale issues you may encounter.
Whether printing daily, weekly or monthly, ribbon changes and cleaning cycles are two critical tasks that need to be completed correctly to keep the printer at optimum performance. The Enduro3E will alert you when the ribbon needs replacing, which is a helpful if the user is inbetween tasks.
It doesn't take much to get this printer up and running, unbox, connect, and follow the instructions in the manual. After installing the printer driver, the Enduro3e should be ready to go, all done in under 10 minutes.
Magicard is known for its high stance on ID card security which is evident throughout the entire Magicard range. By selecting the Enduro3E printer, you'll be able to add a secure HoloKote® anti-fraud watermark to every card you print. Magicards HoloKote® is a patented technology; and gives the user the option to add one of four standard designs to each card. The watermark can be in the form of text or an image, and reduces the risk of card cloning. You can find out more about this fantastic feature here.
The encoding options available with the Enduro3e can be seen online here.
The Enduro3E is a direct-to-card (DTC) printer and prints at 300dp (dots per inch).
To print a card, the colour from a standard Magicard YMCKO ribbon is transferred onto the card through heat that is built up within the printhead. This process ensures vibrant colours, photo-like images, and bright, detailed text, giving the user a card to be proud of.
The Enduro3E prints to CR80 (credit card sized) cards only. As the printer is available in both a single and dual-sided model, printing on both sides of the card is no problem at all.
As this printer meets the needs of both single batch printing and large print runs we have broken the speed down into two sections.
To print one single full-colour card, it will take the printer around 36 seconds, whereas printing 100 full-colour cards, will take you just under one hour.
USB rev 1.1, USB 2.O, and Ethernet connections all come as standard with this printer.
Ethernet connection means you can easily connect to your organisation's network allowing you to print cards directly from multiple desktops.
The Enduro3e is both Windows and MAC OS X compliant.
This printer fits nicely on to a workspace or office desk without taking over. Please note that the dimensions of both the single and dual machine are the same, these are lenght: 45cm, width 20cm and height 23cm.
One element of the Enuro3e that we love is that although this desktop card printer has been on the market since 2008, it's very compact and has a more modern style. The LCD screen and silver trim also give it a professional look and feel.
When looking at purchasing a card printer, it's important to factor in card design software. With the Enduro3e we recommend choosing EasyBadge Professional. With an easy-to-use dashboard and pre-loaded design templates, it’s the most advanced card design software on the market.

Our rating of the Magicard Enduro3E ID printer is 4.5 stars out of 5.
We love the built-in HoloKote security feature that offers four standard designs at no extra cost, alongsiode the ability to run both single and large batch print runs.
On-going consumable costs are low and the UltraCover warranty is a big plus.
What we don’t love, is the 30 card output hopper, if this could be increased to 100, which would match the input hopper, then printing could be more efficient and save time when printing new cards.
