The ID Card Centre Office Expansion

Due to the rapid expansion of our team and the increasing levels of business we found ourselves with an urgent need for more space, so rather than uproot and move, we embarked on a loft conversion! We now have a whole floor dedicated to our card production bureau, a much bigger stock room as well as additional space in the main office.

This has enabled us to expand our bureau offering and add new equipment to our portfolio including the Evolis Avansia, as well as hold more stock to ensure we not only continue to fulfil our orders for next working day delivery but also remain competitive on price with our Price Match Promise.

What's a card bureau?

Our bigger and better bureau is now built but what is a card or name badge bureau service?

Simply put it means we handle the printing and/or encoding of ID cards, access control cards and name badges for you. This may be as simple as a conference name badge or a membership card personalised with a club's logo and details and as soon as a new member joins we print their card and post it out. Or it could be for thousands of personalised photo ID cards with integrated technology for accessing multiple buildings, facilities and services across a site.

Magicard Enduro3E

Another new printer to the market is the Magicard Enduro3E - an upgraded version of the popular Enduro+.

The Enduro3E is great for schools, colleges and medium sized organisations who are looking to print up to 10,000 cards per year, and with a print speed of around 100 cards per hour in full colour and over 500 per hour in monochrome, you'll whiz through those print jobs!

Magicard Enduro 3E

With both full colour printing and rewrite technology this printer offers exceptional flexibility allowing you to print full colour double sided cards and badges but also by utilising the rewrite functionality you can personalise temporary cards for reuse time and time again – making this printer a very economical option.

If security is important to you then the Enduro3E comes with 4 HoloKote® designs - this is a patented technology, exclusive to Magicard, that can print a secure watermark, in a grid pattern across the surface of the card. The printer can also be upgraded to enable magnetic stripe, smart card or combi encoding for additional card security and functionality.

We're currently offering this great little printer as a double sided option for the same price as the single - at a fantastic £699.

A 3 year warranty and free delivery included in this package make it a very cost effective option for owning your own ID card printing system.
