Why Cleaning Your Printer is the Best Way to Increase Printer Lifespan

Category: ID Card Supplies, Tip of the Month

What’s the best way to prevent damage to your ID card printer? Regularly cleaning it! We recommend cleaning your printer every time you replace the ribbon, because dust and debris can build up fast.

ID card printer cleaning kits are specially designed to remove dirt, dust, and other debris from your printer that would otherwise scratch cards, block sensors, and cause other damage. Even in a typical office, your printer will still be exposed to dust and possible spills.

To clean your printer, you’ll only need the supplies that come in the cleaning kit (and most kits contain materials for more than one cleaning cycle!). This includes things like over-sized cards for cleaning rollers, alcohol-soaked cards, cleaning pens, and wipes.
