Card Printer Maintenance – What You Should Know

Non-impact printers today may be classified into inkjet or a laser printer. From where I’m from, the popular type of printer is the inkjet type. I personally use a Canon BJC3000 printer.

Most rental companies take care of maintenance and repairs for the rented printer (s). Some even offer upgrades, when you go for a long term rental plan.

Look after your printer. Keep it clean and cover it when not in use. Use it regularly. The ink is the lubricant that helps maintain the print heads in good condition so regular use is beneficial. Have it professionally cleaned and serviced, at least annually, more often if you use it heavily. Following these few simple steps will prolong the life of your printer and enhance the quality of your prints.

Generally speaking, they’re right. In the case of inkjet printers, especially, companies design printers, inks, and papers to work together to yield the best results. If you use third-party paper with your inkjet printer from a big-name manufacturer, the ink may spread too far into the paper before drying, causing inaccurate colours, lower print resolution, and a dull finish. Plus, it is likely that the prints will fade faster.

Disadvantages: While you are seeking the ink option, bulk-buying computer ink will be the most expensive option for you, but you can still save plenty of money in buying this. They do dry out like the refills when they sit in the packages. But due to higher quality packaging they won’t dry as fast as refills. Shipping is usually higher for these than the same number of refilled cartridges.

Upon completion of the installation process, you are given the choice to print a test page. I recommend you always do this. This is the time to find out if there is a problem, not when you have a report or bank statement you have to print to get to a meeting!

I think that many people make decisions based on price more than on value. But I don’t think this is a good idea. I try to make my decisions based on value.
