rchavis001 : Price, Ease Of Use Reliability

David O’Driscoll : Why not an Oreo ice cream sandwich?

Kim Pfeffer [she|her] : Replying to “Why not an Oreo ice …” a ChipWhich is infinitely superior.

Brandon Watkins : Is the console different than the card design console?

Ashlee Coleman- UofAlberta (she/her) : Are you able to use pre-printed cardstock with fargo connect and these printers? Or are you only able to use blank cardstock when printing? Thanks!

David O’Driscoll : Replying to “Are you able to use …” Hi Ashlee. The HFC printers are backwards compatible as well. So you can get an HFC enabled printer prior to moving over to the software.

Todd Bundy (Brock University) : I suspect that the card jams and ribbon break issues may be mitigated by Fargo Connect because I believe it will roll over stalled print jobs to the next available printer (if I am not mistaken).

David O’Driscoll : Replying to “Are you able to use …” To be clear – the Fargo Connect printers should work in your current environment and then you are future ready for when the HFC installation takes place.

Brandon Watkins : If you have already ordered printers and are preparing for the Fargo Connect integration can you still receive the promotions?

Danny Smith : Replying to “If you have already …” Please reach out to your ColorID account manager and we’ll work with you.

Rachel Lawrence – Illinois State : Is there a yearly fee for Fargo Connect?

Jennifer McNeill (UAlberta) : Thanks David!

Bankim Patel : Thank you, David and ColorID.

David O’Driscoll : Great job David! Thanks for the partnership with ColorID and for everyone taking the time to join here today.

Haunani Mees : Thank you David and Color ID
