What customers say about our support...

Contacted MagiCard for advice and support, got great friendly service, very helpful , much appreciated

Printer model:

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:

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.

Printer model: Magicard 600

Prompt response to issue. Instructions provided resolved issue immediately.

Printer model: Department of Health Magicard 300

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..
