These are legal but personally I would avoind using the single quote or apostrophee. I tried to create a chare with "*" in and it lists:-

/\[]:|<>+=;,?*

as the banned characters. See attached picture.

Agreed. I would avoid those character in the Official naming convention, but put the customer names in the description area so it can be seen when the user selects the printer.

I would try to get the customer to change the convention to:

RCH-NV-P01

Or the like to save you on illegal characters.
