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
