You may not always find supplies or information about your ID card printer. Chances are that these products have already been discontinued. As technology progresses, manufacturers often replace older ID card printers with new, updated models. Legacy models of PVC card printers were “what you see is what you get.” For instance, if you wanted a dual sided printer or a magnetic encoder in the printer for future use, the original purchase of the printer needed to encompass every function that would be needed throughout the lifetime of the printer. Additionally, most common complaint about Legacy printers is their inability to print. Can you blame certain industries for wanting to discontinue such products?
