Do I Really Need a Cleaning Kit?

Shop NBS Cleaning Tape

Dust may be small, but it can cause so much damage to your NBS card printer. Small particles of dust and debris can accumulate inside a printer and cause spots or specks to appear on the printed cards. Worse yet, it can damage the printhead which can cost hundreds of dollars to replace.

So, yes, a cleaning tape is very important! NBS recommends that you clean your printer after each ribbon change. With this, you'll extend the life of your printer, keep your card printing costs down, and protect your printer warranty.

An added bonus, NBS printer cleaning tape is inexpensive! Most are just a couple dollars a cleaning.
