Using the machine for 800+ employees and found it to be reliable and of great quality. We have recieved numerous compliments on the badges and their look, which has helped in the roll out of this new policy. I expect to purchase others as the program expands.

It is a great printer for someone who is just printing a few cards at a time. High quality edge to edge printing, with good picture printing.\r\n\r\nMy only bad experience is that it is not made to mass produce cards, or to be used all day. a few at the time is great.

This product overall is great. In the past I had the Pebble 3 the only bad thing with that is the print head goes out right around 1 year and this printer has a 3 year warranty. I have only had it a month but it works great and we have had less errors in the printing when we print bar codes.

This application makes creating professional ID cards easy and quick. you can set up templates to make data entry consistant and fast. The simple photo import proccess allows for instant croping and the ability to adjust the quality of the photo. Great product for the novice or small company.

I've been using this card for about a year now and they work great. I use them with the Evolis Peb3le and I don't have any problems. They are not the sturdiest of cards, but they hold up through most everyday activities. I would highly recommend this card to anyone looking for a affordable good everyday use card.

Need to replace my old Fargo with a lamination dual printer. Tom was super and assisted me thru the process! Only draw back was my machine had Vista and there are no drivers available. Need XP Professional, so I had to dump Vista (No Big Deal Really). Setup was simple and has been working quite well since!!! Thanks Tom!!

This printer just plain works. It's not great for printing cards that use fonts smaller than about 10pt, but for most basic ID cards, it works great and just keeps going and going. Color reproduction is very good, card handling is straightforward and print quality is good. Well worth the money compared to an outside service if you will print more than 100 cards.

Prints cards right every time!! The colors are sometimes not quite what the computer monitor shows (mostly teal, greens and blues), but once i learned to compensate, the cards look great! Ribbons have lasted longer than advertised for the solid full color background we use. Occasionally it will not pull the cards in automatically and i have to jiggle the hopper, but then it works fine. I would recommend this printer!

If you are looking for cards that are printable and pre-programmed, these are your best bet. These cards work great in our Zebra P110i printer and we protect them with clear badge holders to help extend their lives. They are not the most robust badges and of the 100 we've implemented so far we've had 3 or 4 that stopped working for no visible reason, which is the only reason I am only rating at 4 stars. However, overall I would strongly recommend these cards for their value and performance.

This printer doesn't have a lot of bells and whistles, but gets the job done at a pretty reasonable price point. When my unit refused to print I contact Zebra customer service and shipped it back for repairs. Since it's return it's been just fine with no issues at all. I would recommend this printer to anyone looking to get into badge printing at a low cost and doesn't mind manually printing every card. You can manually duplex with this printer, but I would suggest investing a little more to get a printer that duplexes automatically so you don't have to re-feed every badge you want to print a back on.

We purchased this machine - not for name badges - but for promotional cards we give away at our motorcycle dealership (for example: Poker Walk Cards; Referral Cards; Donations... you name it, the skies the limit). It is fun creating different types of cards! \r\n\r\nMy only draw back is when you copy a card template, you have to enter alot of the information again as it doesn't keep everything when you copy.\r\n\r\nThe only other thing is, I wish it were easier to import pictures to the card.\r\n\r\nBut other than that... another motorcycle dealer saw what we were doing and purchased one of the machines for his dealership!

We like the ID badges produced by the Badgy and for the most part the Assure ID software lets you design with freedom. We ran into some problems and this software needs additional testing and debugging of its subroutines. Novice users are able to do things that the program shouldn't allow them to do. For example: we wanted to change a data field type from alpha to numeric which at first it refused to do but with the right sequence through the menus we were able to change it. Unfortunately, we had entered a sample data record before the change and the program refused to save the template with the changed field type. We also could not exit to the data entry mode to delete the record. Finally we deleted the field altogether and then it also allowed us to erase the data connected to that field.\r\nThe second problem is the fact that the program does not show the file name box when you are saving a new template. You have to select one of your existing templates and then rename it. This is a dangerous process in that you could easily delete an older template that you want to retain. \r\nIt is also irritating that you cannot batch print multiple cards but must print them one by one in this version of the software. For the price paid you should at least be able to automate the printing or reprinting of a batch of cards. Presently you must print each card individually. This is a time consuming and repetitive task, exactly the type of thing that computers were invented to do for us!\r\nWe now of course know some of the pitfalls to avoid so things run smoothly most of the time. The program does crash and shut down at inopportune times and there may be other traps that we may fall into with continued use. The basic concept and functionality of the program is good but the programmer failed to test this program to the extent of all possible inputs and user foibles.\r\n \r\nConclusion: This program needs extensive testing and debugging before it will run without glitches.

Rajeev P - 08/31/2009
This product is excellent and it gives great print quality on the card. We printer our jewelry along with some color text and it came out great!!!\r\n\r\nThanks to IDWHOLESALER to give this product in such good rate.

I have ordered two of these printers for correctional facilities making ID badges for offenders. This is a great printer and worth every dime spent. The customer service you get from IDWholesaler is second to none!!
Why Trust Verified Reviews?
Verified Reviews are real, authentic reviews collected from actual paying customers, using Shopper Approved's Verified Review Platform. When reviews are Verified by Shopper Approved, you know that you can trust them to make better buying decisions.
Unverified Reviews on the other hand, are reviews collected by Open Review platforms that allow anyone to leave a review, without any validation or proof of purchase. Unfortunately, most reviews you read online are Unverified Reviews, and can't be trusted.
As a consumer, here's how you can tell the difference:
Verified Reviews from Verified Review Platforms like Shopper Approved, have much higher review counts and higher overall Star ratings, because they attempt to collect reviews from every single paying customer.
Unverified Reviews from Open Review Platforms, tend to have much lower review counts and more negative Star ratings, because people with bad experiences are primarily those who leave reviews. This often creates a misleading, inaccurate portrayal of a companies true reputation.
So, when searching for Verified Reviews, look for the name you know you can trust. Shopper Approved.
