What customers say about our support...

4 stars were given because the printer was literally bought a month and a half ago and instead of just swapping it out with a new one, we had to go through the manufacturers warranty process. I will say, from the time I shipped it out to the time I got it back was great. Hardly any time passed.

Printer model:

Fragen wurden beantwortet, auch wen eine Kurzanleitung für das programm weiterhin fehlt

Printer model: Pronto100

Overall a good experience. Seemed quite expensive to repair our printer we sent in for RMA considering we could buy a brand new printer (newer model) for half the price..

Printer model: Enduro3e

We ended up not getting the piece repaired due to the cost but support was great about getting back to me which I appreciate.

Printer model: Prima 4

Continuously followed up with Technical Support for status updates on badge printer. Responses were timely, but could have been elaborated better. Printer did return in excellent condition and overall, issues were resolved.

Printer model: Magicard 600
