Single or Double-Sided, Direct-to-Card Printer

The IDP SMART-31 printer is an entry level printer that packs a lot of different features into a compact design. The compact design allows the printer to fit into most spaces, or at least not take over your entire desktop! 

The SMART-31 has a colour changing LED button that indicates when further intervention is required, whether to just change supplies, or if something is wrong with the printer. The Watchmen tool is included with the printer installation CD, so you will have a written description of the issues as well. 

The SMART-31 printer uses a reusable ribbon cartridge (or tray), that you load the ribbon rolls into before placing in the printer. The SMART-31 has several standard colour ribbons, as well as some specialty monochrome ribbons.

The SMART-31 has a standard three (3) year warranty, that includes parts, labour, and a replacement card printer if needed, ensuring you are never without a printer. So if you need to issue badges on-demand, 24/7, you will always be ready. All printers purchased from E-CARD come with lifetime phone and email support, above and beyond the manufacturer warranty provided with the printer (and supported by E-CARD).
