Chanhassen, MN (PRWEB) September 27, 2012
As with any piece of technology, ID card printer model discontinuations are inevitable. Manufacturers are continually looking for ways to improve their products and incorporate the latest features and technology available in plastic card printing. Several ID card printer models from Fargo, Evolis,and Zebra, to name a few, have been discontinued in the past few months. How does this affect you? Affects should be minimal initially.
To ensure that an ID card printer is up-to-date, follow these tips:
Most printer manufacturers will continue to offer ribbons and other printer-related supplies for a number of years after the printer itself has been discontinued. However, some of the less-commonly used supplies may be discontinued as well. Check in with a photo ID retailer on supplies availabilityto ensure the items needed will continue to be available.
If a discontinued printer begins to have problems, first make sure that the latest firmware and driver versions are installed. Once a printer has been discontinued, development of firmware and driver improvements also ends.
If the problem with a printer cannot be resolved with a firmware or driver update, look for a reputable manufacturer-authorized reseller who offers technical support.
IDWholesaler.com is a manufacturer-authorized reseller who offers all of the above. A comprehensive listing of discontinued ID card printers can be found on ID Wholesaler´s Discontinued ID Card Printers page. Additionally, they offer hard-to-find supplies for discontinued card printers. “We offer supplies for nearly every card printer model ever made by the brands we carry, including Fargo, Persona, Evolis, Eltron, Magicard, Zebra, Nisca, Datacard, EDIsecure, NBS, and Polaroid printers,” says Jennifer Clancy, marketing manager at ID Wholesaler. “We try to offer all of the resources needed to card printer owners, whether their printer is currently in production or has been discontinued.”
While owning a discontinued ID card printer isn´t typically a problem, Clancy suggests that you receive professional advice before purchasing a new ID card printer: “Before you buy, consult with a trained ID card printer professional to ensure that you are purchasing the latest printer model available so that you can take advantage of the latest technology and avoid potential inconveniences that may arise from owning a discontinued printer.”
