FAQ

All of our printers are on a minimum rental term of 7 days.  There is no maximum rental term.

The printer will be sent securely packaged and with all the required cables and a disc or USB stick containing the printer drivers.  We will also include enough cleaning cards for your requirements.

Yes we include outbound and return shipping in the hire cost. Please note that this only includes one delivery attempt so please ensure that someome is available to accept delivery and that we are given accurate delivery details. If the printer is returned to us due to the courier being unable to deliver then we will charge an additional £10 plus VAT for re-delivery.

Yes.  You will need to follow the cleaning cycle instructions as per the printer.  This varies depending on printer and print job.  Cleaning cards will be provided to enable you to do this very simple job.  Please note that we may need to charge a maintenance/repair fee if cleaning cycles are not completed.

All of our rental printers are put in to ‘quarantine’ on their return.  They then go through a full clean and test, including any required updates prior to being sent out again.

If your job is time sensitive or you don’t have time to set up a badge design in CardExchange then we can supply you with a laptop, already loaded with your card design, so you just need to plug in the printer, load your data and start printing.

 

Using our rental laptop also means you don't have to worry about installing printer drivers and card management software on your own computer or laptop, a process that can be especially time consuming and problematic if you don't have the admin rights on your work machines.

 

We ensure that the laptop is wiped of all data when it is returned to us, in case you forget to do this, so your data remains secure and isn't accidentally passed on to the next user.

 

The laptop comes complete with a tough Peli case for easy and secure transportation.

Depending on the complexity of your print job, it may be advisable to use special card management software to set up the card design and to pull in the data from your database.  We can advise you on the best software for your requirements and operating system.

 

Our 7 Day Rental Licence allows you to benefit from this software without the financial outlay of a full licence.  You can save your card designs on a local machine ready for use with the card management software in the future.  This is ideal if you run the same event year on year and want a similar card design or if you have annual enrolments or reissuance of ID cards.

Our printers are packaged in their original boxes.  If you need a carry case or flight case instead then please let us know.

Yes, but please do advise us first.  If you need help with information for a carnet please let us know in good time so that we can collate this for you.

Our normal hours for support are 8am to 6pm Monday to Friday.  If you need support outside of these hours it’s charged at £25 per hour or part of.

To ensure maximum protection of your data, please securely destroy any used printer ribbons at the end of your hire period and wipe the laptop of any personal data.  However don’t worry if you do forget to so this as we will do this as part of our post hire checks.
