What customers say about our support...

The support team was very responsive and provided the information needed to address the issue.

Printer model: Rio Pro

In all fairness, as my question was the opposite of what MagiCard would like to achieve I wasn't really expecting a comprehensive answer. Even though I did not get a solution to my question, the answer was well formulated and even offered some alternatives inducing the effect the alternative would have to the print quality.

Printer model:

Support were very helpful but sadly we didn't manage to get the 2010 machine working again and I had to buy a new machine.

Printer model: Pronto

Contacted MagiCard for advice and support, got great friendly service, very helpful , much appreciated

Printer model:

Detailed instructions given to resolve the issue.
