About us

Where it all started

We are TheMagicTouch®

In 1989 with the arrival of the first Canon CLC color laser copier, Juergen Hagedorn invented the first patented image textile transfer for electrostatic dry toner copiers. TheMagicTouch was grounded. His invention was the start of today’s personalization. With this invention he managed to create a successful business built on personalized or short run full colour printing onto virtually any substrate. TheMagicTouch was launched worldwide through a network of resellers, in-house training, passionate guidance and transfer of technical knowledge, everyone was able to provide customers with their own language and culture.
