Comments about Datacard SP25+ Rewrite ID Card Printer Single-Sided - Configurable:

After about a year of mild service, we started to see repetitive damage to print ribbons...even when new ones were used. Datacard support quickly identified it as a "print head" issue and sent us a new part overnight under their warranty coverage. Excellent customer service!
