Margicard Rio 2e Printer Details

The Magicard Rio 2e single-sided printer is a secure, easy-to-use printer that is designed to handle various volumes of card production. Plus, its UltraCoverPlus warranty includes three years of full printhead coverage and loaner printer service.

  • Operate and maintain your printer with ease
    The Magicard Rio 2e single-sided card printer is easy to set up and use, featuring plug-and-play Microsoft Windows drivers and an intuitive LCD control panel. Plus, USB, Ethernet, and parallel interfaces are included with the Rio 2e single-sided printer.

  • Create secure ID badges with built-in HoloKote
    The Magicard Rio 2e printer includes built-in card security with Magicard's exclusive HoloKote card watermarking feature. Unlike expensive holographic laminates, there is no additional cost to add Magicard HoloKote watermarking to your cards. Instead, the HoloKote feature allows you to print a watermark using the O panel of a standard color ribbon. Plus, enabling HoloKote right in the printer driver makes the choice of adding a watermark to your cards easy!

    There are four HoloKote designs to choose from with the Rio 2e, including globes, interlocking squares, keys and waves. You'll also have the choice of printing your watermark repeatedly across your cards, or use the HoloKote FLEX option to select a single location.

    When higher security is needed, you can print custom text or graphics using the HoloKote Custom Key or HoloKote Custom FLEX Key. Learn more about Magicard's HoloKote technology and see a sample of how your watermark will look on you card with the Custom HoloKote Tool.

    Using HoloKote along with Magicard HoloPatch cards, which include a gold 'foil' patch, turns one area of the watermark into a highly-visible security seal that is similar in appearance to an expensive holographic patch, without the expense.

Customize your printer to your needs with:

  • Input hopper lock - Optional
    The optional input hopper lock protects your card stock.

  • Card encoding - Optional
    Use your cards for more than just a photo ID! The Rio 2e printer can be ordered with magnetic stripe encoding capabilities and smart card personalization.

  • Extended warranty and printer loaner plans - Optional
    ID Zone offers extended warranty plans with satisfaction-guaranteed service handled by our in-house, knowledgeable technical support team. Our extended warranty plan include support via a toll-free number or live chat, total parts replacement plus labor, and fast turn-around on printer repairs. In the event your printer needs to be sent to use for repair, our loaner plans help ensure your card printing can continue. With printer loaner coverage, we'll send you a loaner printer while yours is in for repair.
