the best quality at every print. Dust and debris on your cards can easily damage your ID
card printer and result in poorly printed cards.
To make sure that you get the best out of your blank PVC
cards, follow these steps:
- Store your packs
of cards in a clean, dust-free environment. Keep your cards in a temperature controlled area to
avoid extreme heat or cold.
- Unpack your cards
only when you are ready to use them. Do not use a sharp object to open the shrink wrapping to avoid scratches
on your cards.

the edges. Do not touch the
card surface as oils from your hands will transfer to the cards and reflect on
the printed cards.

card, throw it away. Trying to clean it might only result in added damage to the card.

regularly: cleaning your
printer, rollers, and printhead will reduce the risk of contamination by dust
and dirt. Follow the cleaning recommendations of your card printer
Remembering these simple tips will help you print high-quality
cards and protect your ID card printer.
