Print Duo (Both Sides)

Return to printer solutions | Driver settings
Written By Chris Pellegrino

If your Magicard Printer Model is ‘Duo Enabled’ you will be able to select Both Sides from within Printing Preferences.

Control Panel > View Devices and Printers > Right click your printers icon > Printing Preferences

In the ‘Printer’ Tab of the driver preferences:

  • A print Duo enabled printer will allow you to select both sides.
  • If your printer is Not Duo enabled the duplex printing option will be greyed out as per the screenshot below:


Print Duo (Both Sides)

How do I know if my printer is ‘Print Duo Enabled’?

Power the printer on and when it has initialised the Display will contain the word: DUO

You can also confirm this on the printers manufacturer label on its base.

My printer is Duo but the duplex option is greyed out in Printing Preferences?

This could be a sign that the driver has lost communication to the printer and could be the result of a number of causes.

If you are connected to the printer via USB.

  1. Power off the printer.
  2. Go to control panel> devices and printers and remove all Magicard icons.
  3. Then reboot the pc.
  4. Once back up power on the printer.
  5. Wait a couple of minutes and in Devices and printers should be a new Magicard icon.
  6. Right click that icon and select Printing preferences. On the printer tab set it to both sides ( this should not be greyed out anymore)
  7. Then set your color formats on the card front tab and card back tab.

If your printer is not “Print Duo” enabled, you may be able to upgrade your printer please register or sign in to create an upgrade

What customers say about our support...

Thank you so much! The ID printer is working great and we really appreciate the honesty of your technicians! We could have easily been billed for repairs that weren't done, as our printer is no longer under warranty, but you didn\'t charge us at all. The technician superstar told me that it was a simple loose wire, which he reattached, and they shipped it back at no charge. Thank you!
