Is my machine capable of using magnetic stripe cards?

Written By john.fieldsend

Check your printers LCD screen.

If you see your printer name followed by an ‘M”  or a “Mag”  then it has Magnetic encoding capability.

If not then please be aware that magnetic encoding capability, a magnetic encoder module, cannot be retro-fitted after a printer has been manufactured.

It can can only be included at the time of manufacture.

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

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!

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.
