Believe it or not, ID Card Printers require some due-diligence to maintain a proper working order. In order to prevent future printing problems, it’s important that you have the necessary knowledge and tools to keep your printer in working order. In the long term, buying a $20-$30 cleaning kit could quite literally save you hundreds, possibly thousands of dollars in repairs and printer costs.
- You should clean your ID card printer every time you switch out a printer ribbon. Often times manufacturers recommend cleaning around 700-1000 prints, but to be safe you should certainly perform a cleaning more often.
What’s the big deal? What if I don’t clean my ID card printer?
- If you decide to forgo cleaning, get ready for some awful prints! You’re risking having some ugly ID cards, but on top of that, you may also cause some internal damage that could require bringing your printer in for repair. Before you say “oh, well it’s under warranty by the manufacturer, who cares!”, by being neglectful you may have even voided the warranty, and end up having to pay hundreds or thousands to get back to printing ID cards.
Okay, you’ve convinced me. What should I do now?
