Over the past decade there have been a number of big changes to the ID card industry. With the rollout of new Microsoft operating systems, all the main card printer manufacturers have used the opportunity to roll out new models to insure compatibility. And with each new generation of printers it is only a matter of time before the manufacturer discontinues support for their previous models.

For you this typically starts as a minor inconvenience; no new versions of drivers or firmware which allows those older machines to be compatible with new operating systems. But eventually replacement parts are halted making it impossible to maintain your discontinued printer beyond basic ribbons or printheads.

AdvantIDge has put together a list of printer models that are discontinued as we regularly get requests for support and ongoing supplies. At AdvantIDge are committed to doing everything we can to support our customers and insure your success. Let us work with you to determine the best options available for your particular model as they don’t always need replacement. If it’s possible to keep your current system working for you, we’ll help make that happen. Sometimes the best recommendation we can make is to make the investment in a new ID card printer. Below each section of the discontinued models you’ll also find a link to the modern equivalent from that manufacturer.
