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

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

Printer model: Magicard 600

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

Prompt response to issue. Instructions provided resolved issue immediately.

Printer model: Department of Health Magicard 300

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.
