Datamax On Site Printer
Great little machine
I was reluctant to pay for a machine that just printed name badges- after all I have a small printer. But when I saw that I did not have to worry about running out of ink mid project, that it prints all the things I need in a nice font and that I could get customized tags for my event I was in. Happy I purchased it.

Perfect for events
This printer is everything we wanted in a portable printer. The only draw back is that it is black and white only. But it works like a charm.

Nametags made easy
This printer makes last-minute nametags easy. The printer itself is solid and well-made.
We've been really happy with this product thus far.

This printer works great! It's fast, hooks up fast, integrates with other software and makes us look professional at events with walk-ins that have printed nametags and don't look out of place with something hand written.
Our founding partner showed up to an event last week unexpected and we had a nametag printed for him by the time he got to the registration table, he never knew we hadn't pre-printed one.
We bought the travel case too, great investment - it holds the chords and blank nametags. Easy to carry everything securely.

With the included instructions, this printer was very easy to set up and have running in just a couple of minutes. The badge print quality was great and we look forward to having our meeting registration process run efficiently from now on.

Not A Useful Solution
We purchased this printer in order to print 3"x4" name badges on site at conferences (for those late registrants).
First, the inserts we purchased to go along with it are not in the "roll" setup that we would have liked. Instead, it is a stacked set that feeds in. The way this printer works, it wastes one after every tear. (You tear a name tag, then in order for it to print again, it needs to feed a blank one out first).
Second, it takes a massive amount of configuration to print the way we need (horizontal). We wasted over 20 name tags just trying to get it the way we needed it (with a very technical person running the show). Overall, the feeding system is "fragile" in the sense that it can easily feed in your tags crooked (and subsequently print on them crooked).
Third, we were not expecting high graphic quality, but it can't even text with a common consistency. There are streaks and different shades of black. Ridiculous.

The concept of this product is great
Initially I had problems with the print quality on the badges. Some badges would print out good, but most were faded in one particular area. I tried the fix that was sent to me after I informed customer service of the problem. This fix did not work. You customer service department was very quick to send me out a new printer. The return was also easy. I do like the concept of this printer and hope to see them develop it further with the capability of color. It is a little bulky, but not heavy. I purchased the shipping case which makes it easy to ship to location.
