What customers say about our support...

The issue I had with the printer was resolved with speed and professionalism.

Printer model: Magicard 300

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

It was strange what my problem was but support was quick to isolate it with a few pics sent to them. Very happy with the support.

Printer model: Magicard 600

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.

Customer service were very patient and helpful when communicating with me to figure out the problem with the machine! Thank you for the repair, printer works again! It did take a little longer than expected to get it back, about three weeks instead of two.

Printer model: Enduro3e
