We ended up not getting the piece repaired due to the cost but support was great about getting back to me which I appreciate.

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

The response was much faster this time and got it fixed within 1 1/2 weeks! They fixed the problem and answered the questions I had! Also, great that there was a warranty to help with the price!

Alan M was a fab help! Quick to help and even called me back when we were cut off due to a power cut on my end! Called him back the following week and he remembered me and the problem i was having. Thanks Alan!!

Printer model: Pronto

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!
