You are sitting at your desk trying to eat that slice of pizza with extra cheese you just bought for lunch. Just as you are thinking that you wish you added pepperoni to your order, someone walks in who needs a few replacement ID cards. You are happy to help. You ask for the names, start your printer and begin printing replacement ID cards. Once the front side prints, you grab the cards and flip them over so you can print the back.

Unfortunately, now you aren’t the only one having extra cheese pizza for lunch, so is your ID printer.

ID Printers are most often times damaged by dirt, dust, debris and, even greasy pizza hands. Those things can damage your machine as well as your print head. If your machine goes down, then you may have to replace it. Of course, you might only have to replace the print head. The problem is that most print heads aren’t covered by manufacturers’ warranties if damaged due to lack of proper care and the cost of most print heads starts at nearly $500 dollars. That is one expensive piece of pizza!

So, to answer the question – Don’t Flip! You need to plan ahead and purchase a printer that does everything you need it to do. Your printer will last longer and you will save money in the long run.
