Do you know the best way to prevent damage to your ID card printer, allowing it to keep printing for years to come? Remembering to regularly clean your ID card printer!

How Cleaning Helps

Even in the cleanest office environment, your printer is still exposed to dust and other debris that can build up over time (and possibly an accidental coffee spill!). This dust and dirt can block sensors within the printer, damage sensitive electrical parts, and even break the printhead.

By regularly cleaning your card printer (including the rollers and printhead), you can remove this buildup of dirt before it becomes a problem requiring expensive repairs and printer downtime.

How often should you clean your printer? The easiest way to remember is to clean your printer every time you change the ribbon!
