Cleaning your ID card printer is one of the most important steps you can take to protect your printer from damage – it removes dirt, dust, and debris that could damage the sensitive electronics and moving parts within the printer.

What Comes in a Cleaning Kit?

While the specific supplies and how many of each you get will vary by printer model, in general you will get some combination of these items in a cleaning kit:

  • Printhead cleaning pens
  • Extra-long and/or short cleaning cards
  • Swabs
  • Wipes
  • Cleaning cloths
  • Cleaning rollers

Laminating printers may also have a separate cleaning kit just for the lamination module.
