Does the Prima 4 or Prima 8 printer have a Pass Through mode?

Written By john.fieldsend

The Prima 4 & 8 Printers cannot be used in “Pass Through” mode and move a card directly to the laminating unit without printing. (i.e. cards that have already been printed and need laminating only).

  1. The final movement of the card prior to ejecting is performed by the Retransfer Ribbon which is only used during the printing cycle.
  2. The Prima 4 Laminator does not have a stand alone function, it can only work with the Printer.

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.

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..

This is my 1st interaction w/MagiCard Service, they responded immediately, resolved the issue and stood behind their warranty.
