Added visual security at no extra cost

HoloKote, patented by Magicard, is a secure watermark that is printed on to the card surface during the normal print cycle using standard consumables (ribbons and cards).

The HoloKote image is frosted into the clear overcoat application of the standard print process resulting in a watermark like layer that can be visually verified when the card is tilted in the light. With all Magicard direct-to-card printers, the user can select from four standard secure HoloKote designs using the printer driver.

Enhanced visual security 

Completely unique to Magicard, HoloPatch cards have a highly reflective gold ‘super diffuser’ seal. When the HoloKote watermark is printed on to the seal, the watermark becomes clearly visible under all lighting conditions.


HoloKote with HoloPatch has a similar appearance to hologram seals. It provides a distance visible security mark allowing a security guard or colleague to easily verify badge authenticity from a distance of six feet or more.

When creating an ID card, aspects such as colour, design and layout can sometimes take precedence over the most important element, the security. Without a card security feature, anyone with access to any ID card printer could make a convincing copy of your card.

All Magicard ID card printers have a built-in card security feature – HoloKote, which prints a secure watermark on the card’s surface, offering the option of customising this watermark to your organisation’s unique logo or security design, tiled or stretched across the card.
