What customers say about our support...

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

In all fairness, as my question was the opposite of what MagiCard would like to achieve I wasn't really expecting a comprehensive answer. Even though I did not get a solution to my question, the answer was well formulated and even offered some alternatives inducing the effect the alternative would have to the print quality.

Printer model:

Detailed instructions given to resolve the issue.

Printer model:

Same day reply and gave all the information I could need to fix the issue I had and it worked first time

Printer model: Rio Pro 360

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
