09 Jul Choosing a Production Printer or Copier
Production printers have many different applications and they’re a vital part of several industries. The range of production equipment is quite varied, and this can make it tricky to figure out which kinds are suitable for which types of production if you’re not an expert.
If you are unsure as to which type of production printer you require, here are some thoughts to keep in mind when selecting:
First off, perhaps the most important consideration is: what are you printing? The medium used and the purpose, as well as the desired output, will greatly affect the type you need. For example, if you need to print large items, such as banners, wide-format printers are ideal, however, if you’re printing A4 brochures, this would be unsuitable.
Secondly, you need to consider your budget. This should not only take into account the original once-off cost of the printer, but consumables and peripherals for future as well. Think about how much ink, paper and other consumables you will require, and how much they will cost you.
Thirdly, you will need to balance this with the specific printing you require. You do not want to sacrifice much quality and speed to save money, as this will likely cost you more in the long-run, and you’ll have inferior production too. It is best to select from a name that is trustworthy and has a long history of manufacturing quality printers and copiers.
There are a few reasons for this: firstly, you can rely on a brand like Xerox to deliver on their promise of quality, and secondly, as they are firmly entrenched in the printing business, they have professional suppliers of their office equipment all over the world.
