Magicard Prima 4 Re-Transfer Printer

The Prima 4 uses reverse-transfer printing technology. Images are printed onto a thin retransfer film in a "reverse image" and heat transferred onto the card. The quality of the finished card is comparable to off-set litho printing, but with the advantage that every card can be different.

Please note printers are not supplied with a ribbon so don’t forget to add one to your cart.
