Keep It Clean...

If you own an ID card printer, regardless of what brand or manufacturer, it’s important to make sure your printer is being cleaned on a consistent basis. Most ID card printer manufacturers suggest a cleaning every 700-1,000 prints to keep your printer running smoothly. 

Much like getting the oil changed in your car, this routine maintenance on your ID card printer will help keep it running efficiently and will ultimately extend the life of your printer. Using a printer cleaning kit will remove the dust, dirt and lint from the inside of the printer. 

Not cleaning an ID card printer regularly can lead to a buildup of debris on the print head, which may damage it and leave white streaks across your ID cards. The typical cost to replace that print head is around $500. On the other hand, a printer cleaning kit will likely cost less than $50 and it will only take a few minutes of your time to get your printer cleaned, protecting the valuable investment you made in your ID card system

IDville has printer cleaning kits for every major ID card printer manufacturer. In comparing the cost of maintaining your printer through using our printer cleaning kits to the cost of buying an entirely new ID card printer, the solution is obvious. We also feature quantity discounts on our cleaning kits so you can stock up and save. 

If you’ve never cleaned your printer and need some assistance, you can contact our system specialists at 866.438.4553 and they’ll help you protect your investment by walking you through the cleaning process.

Trade shows: my secret to understanding customer needs!

After attending over 40 tradeshows within the past year I have seen my fair share of the country.  What I have really noticed is that almost everyone wears an ID badge!  From the contractors used at the exhibit halls, to my taxi cab drivers,  to the baggage handlers loading luggage onto the plane, everyone is wearing an ID badge!   

The one ID accessory that I see being used the most by women is our new Rhinestone lanyard. These new, sparkly lanyards have made it fun and stylish for woman to wear their IDs.  We recently gave these lanyards away at the SHRM conference in Chicago and our booth was almost overrun by human resource professionals wanting these shiny gems!

The most popular ID badge accessory I see being used by men are our carabiner badge reels.  These badge reels are sturdy and dependable and allow you to wear your ID badge on your belt loop and then clip onto your keys so that you don’t forget the ID the next day.  Make sure to check our carabiner badge reel supply as we also have reels that have a measuring tape and flashlight built into them!

One of the most rewarding things about being on the road promoting IDville is running into current customers who have one of our ID Maker ID systems. It’s great to hear them rave about their ID Maker system being easy to use while allowing them to make a professional badge that no other system can create.  Customers are always quick to flip open their purse or wallet to show me their ID and how they designed it with their logo and artwork.  Many of the customers that I worked with as they chose an ID printer use the custom card design that I originally made for them per their request!

Interested in an ID system and want to see a custom ID card design with your logo?  Fill out your info here and one of our sales reps will contact you ASAP.

I will be at the following shows over the next couple of weeks.  Stop in and say hello!

International Association of Fire Chiefs – Chicago 8/16 & 8/17

Midwest Security & Police Show – Tinley Park 8/20 & 8/21
