A properly maintained printer also ensures your business keeps operating without costly downtime. This proactive approach to maintenance can significantly benefit your organization's productivity and efficiency.

Proper card handling is a critical aspect of overall maintenance that should be acknowledged and practiced by all users. Quality, handling, and storage of the plastic cards you print on are just as important as the printer itself.

Not all plastic cards are created equal. Choosing cards that are compatible with your printer and suited to the type of printing you're doing is vital. We provide specific recommendations on card types and brands that work best with our printers.

Using the right cards reduces wear on the print head and ensures the clarity and durability of your prints.

Our approach to maintenance is flexible and adaptable to the unique demands of your business or organization. We understand that each user's needs are different, and we provide a maintenance schedule that corresponds to your actual usage patterns.

The duty cycle of your printer is an estimate of the number of cards it can print within a certain time frame without compromising quality or longevity. Recognizing this helps in planning a maintenance schedule that suits your specific needs.

It's crucial to balance usage with necessary downtime for cleaning and other maintenance tasks. We'll help you find that perfect equilibrium to maximize your printer's lifespan while fulfilling your printing requirements.

A bit of attention and care can prevent the issues that arise from letting a printer sit idle for too long.
