Fixed and working well, would have been easier if could have paid by credit card

Printer model: Prima 4

Thank you so much! The ID printer is working great and we really appreciate the honesty of your technicians! We could have easily been billed for repairs that weren't done, as our printer is no longer under warranty, but you didn\'t charge us at all. The technician superstar told me that it was a simple loose wire, which he reattached, and they shipped it back at no charge. Thank you!

Printer model: Pronto

Alan M was a fab help! Quick to help and even called me back when we were cut off due to a power cut on my end! Called him back the following week and he remembered me and the problem i was having. Thanks Alan!!

Printer model: Pronto

With a couple of email. Got the information I need to resolve my issues. Great work. Great products. Thank you.

Printer model: Magicard 600

The response was much faster this time and got it fixed within 1 1/2 weeks! They fixed the problem and answered the questions I had! Also, great that there was a warranty to help with the price!

Printer model: Enduro3e
