Buying an ID Card Printer

When it comes to buying an ID Card Printer there are a lot of aspects to consider. Purchasing a card printer is an investment in the organisation that supports it.  The Australian ID Card Printer market is different from the rest of the world. In other countries, such as the UK and the US, the manufacturer often provides direct support to the customers. This is not always the case in Australia, and if a vendor does offer support, it may be just a warranty repair service, where you can expect to wait weeks for your printer to be returned. At PPC we take a very different attitude, which is why we have put our brand on our printers.  Find out more about choosing a card printer and the important factors involved by clicking on the Read More button.
