Helpful tips to maintain and protect your ID Card Printer

Card Printer Cleaning KitsCleaning Cycles

Each card printer has the ability to enter into its own cleaning cycle. It will allow you to insert an adhesive cleaning card to remove any dust or debris along the card’s path through the printer. We suggest that you run a cleaning cycle after changing a monochrome or color print ribbon. An alternative schedule is every 3 months. Entering into the cleaning cycle is a simple process, Check out your User’s Guide for detailed instructions.


ID Card Printer Dust CoversDust Covers & Carrying Cases

Dust covers are a great investment if your card printer is only in use for a short while during the course of the year. Covering your card printer while in storage is a great way to prevent damage from dust and debris in the air ensuring that each card printing run produces top quality ID badges or access cards.



Card Printer Firmware and Driver UpdatesFirmware and Printer Drivers

Most manufacturers update their products software over time based on feedback they receive from their customers. Maintaining the current versions of both the firmware and driver software helps to eliminate software bugs, adds new support features, improves functionality, and optimizes performance. This will ensure that the card printer operates correctly with your ID badging or access control programs.
