Selling Points For a Copier

Copier sales might be seeing a slight decrease because a lot of businesses today are opting to not buy a copier and to simply purchase copies from a store whenever they need them, but is this really the more efficient option?  For businesses that need to make lots of quality copies on a daily basis, it's a wiser choice to purchase a quality copier for themselves.

Owning your own copier will save you time and time is money.  Sometimes you need a copy in 5 minutes, and don't have the time to send somebody to a store.  The person has to drive to the store, wait for service, wait to have copies made, carry the copies to their car, and drive back.  By owning your own copier, you could reduce this process to a 30 second walk to and from the copier, and copies that are made immediately.  You can save your employees a lot of time that can be spent efficiently rather than wasted.

Owning a copier for your business will also save you money.  Sure, buying a copier is a lot more money than making copies a few times, but you're likely making copies more than a few times a day, week, or month.  A copier is an investment that will pay for itself over time.  Every copy you make on your new copier represents money that you're saving to merit your purchase.  Not to mention the gas money you won't have to spend driving to and from the printing services store.

Printing service stores are great for individuals who make a few copies a year, but copier sales should still be strong among companies who require copiers daily, or even weekly.

Copier Sales - Choosing the Right Product

When it comes to copier sales, the most important decision that you are going to make involves which type of machine you are interested in purchasing.  Because of its function inside of the office, you want to make sure that you are getting the right equipment for the right price and are using it to its maximum potential.  If there are extra features, you want to make sure that you are utilizing them.  Before making a purchase, consider what type of machine will work best for you.

What Do You Need?
Before thinking about copier sales, decide what you are planning to do with this office addition.  Will it be used on a daily basis or just for larger projects?  Do you need items in color or just black and white? How often are you going to be stapling or hole punching the papers coming out?  Decide how often you are going to use it, and what features it needs to come equipped with.  Following this decision, you can narrow down the choices.

Research the Options
When it comes to copier sales, you want to be an informed buyer.  Look into specific brands that have durable products with the features that you plan to use the most.  If prices are the same, you want to purchase the machine with a better reputation and possibly a warranty that can give you piece of mind. The more information you have on the different choices available to you, the more likely it will be that you find the right fit for your personal or business needs.

New or Refurbished
When looking into copier sales, one of the best ways to save money is purchasing refurbished items. These usually have a full warranty, a low count, and have been inspected for proper functioning by the manufacturer or reseller.  While they are not new, they still work just as well and sell for a fraction of the price.  Because of the warranty, there is no worry that it won't last or problems will cause it to break prematurely.

Shopping for the Product
Now that you know what you need, it is time to investigate the options.  See what is available and begin to determine what price range you are interested in.  Remember what it will be used for and what you need to accomplish with it.  Don't rush into a decision, because this type of office essential will be used for a long time, you will want to choose wisely.

When choosing a company that specializes in copier sales, don't just look at the merchandise. You also need to look into the procedures for service, what type of solutions are offered in the case of problems, and how you would be able to contact someone in case of an issue.  Also, think about how delivery is going to take place.  Make sure all of your questions are answered before you make the purchase. Things will run more smoothly with the right piece of equipment saving you time and energy in putting together all of the paperwork your office needs.

Which Printer? Right Technology, Right Choice

Whether you are responsible for a small home-based business, or a large company with many departments and workgroups, there are continuous choices to be made on the procurement of office equipment.  Not least amongst these, is the selection of the appropriate printer technology for your business needs?  Here in outline are the various technologies and their appropriate environment.

Personal Ink-Jets
Useful for one individual or a workgroup with a minimal color printing needs, a low-cost personal ink-jet will be the best choice.  Personal inkjet printers offer a low initial cost, plus the flexibility to print on a variety of media, such as promotional materials.

Business Ink-Jets
In a bigger business environment, or one where color output is a major requirement, the workload is likely to be too great for a personal inkjet printer.  Thus a unit designed specifically for business will fit the bill, offering a lower cost per page.  Many business inkjets employ ink-saving technology and modular cartridges, which avoid the need to change the color when you change the black and white cartridges, for example.

Laser Printers
Large companies demand more output of all kinds. Perhaps also the demand for color output on standard-size paper may be addressed with a laser printer

Laser printers have invariably offered monochrome output in the past, but more and more color-capable lasers are coming onto the market. For organizations with a heavy black-only output though, they still offer the lowest cost of monochrome printing, as opposed to ink-jets which offer a lower cost for color output.  Even so, the picture is changing, and there are some surprisingly low-cost color lasers available today.

Large or Wide Format Printers
Design work or over-size documents for displays require a special kind of printer - a large format printer capable of printing on very large paper (or other media) sheets.  Factors to consider here are quality of output, color capability, speed, networking capability and additional functions such as scanning and copying.

Photo Printers
A photo printer is essentially a personal color ink-jet with a higher capability for printing on special photo paper.  Naturally useful in the home, such printers have their use in the business environment - for example when there is a need to include quality photos in presentation packs for marketing purposes, or for use in training materials.

Business Color or Full Color?
For businesses requiring mission-critical exact color reproduction (such as in the preparation of color proofs, for example), then it is important to differentiate between machine which offer Black and Business Color as opposed to the higher quality Full Color specification.

Multifunction Printers or MFPs
The Multifunctional, All-in-One device combines print,copier, scanner and fax capability in a single machine. These systems are surprisingly compact and affordable.  Indeed some MFPs start at prices below $300.  However, in this category of printers, some hefty and powerful machines are available for Print for Pay and major corporate use, with a vast array of bolt-on systems for folding, stapling and collating documents.

Impact Printers
Rarer these days, but it is still possible to buy dot-matrix and even daisywheel devices for specialist impact applications, for example for such as multiple-copy form printing.  Such printers tend to be more expensive, robust and bulky than the ink-jets and laser printers in more common use.  Impact printers by definition are also much noisier in use.

Other factors - Stand-alone or Networked?
If you plan to share the printer in a workgroup on your office network, then network-ready functionality must be specified.

Speed of Operation
Businesses with a heavy output, or with a plan to share the printer among several users, a faster printer is important - and one that will avoid forcing staff to wait for printouts to get through the queue.  Any shared printer is also likely to be networked so the network speed in the office is also a factor

Cost Considerations
In additional to the initial purchase cost, there is of course the cost of consumables such as ink cartridges and toner which also require budgeting.  The twin costs of initial purchase (or lease) plus consumables and maintenance are defined as the Total Cost of Ownership, and requires a careful projection of costs over the life-cycle of the equipment.

Support and Supplier Backup
All printers come with a basic warranty or guarantee that entitles the purchaser up to one year return to base servicing and repairs.  It is wise and useful to arrange additional cover and a service plan to suit the capacity and work-expectations of the printer.

Green Credentials
Protecting the environment is a crucial issue these days, and taking advice whilst looking for the most energy-efficient options makes sound business sense.  Doing this should also save money in terms of running costs at least.
