Money and Space With a Printer Scanner Copier Fax Save

Technology is truly a wonderful thing.  Especially when it makes life easier.  Before, getting lengthy paperwork done on time, meant running continuously from place to place looking for a separate printer, scanner, copier and fax machine.  I am sure, most small business owners felt like they ran the Boston marathon each and every day.


Thankfully, they can finally take their running shoes off; because the solution has arrived in the form of the all-in-one printer scanner copier fax.  This multi-function device allows the small business owner to run a more efficient business by making his small/home office self sufficient.
I have numerous associates who use a printer scanner copier fax.  All of whom are pretty happy with the performance of their multi-function device.  The time and costs saved due to this device make it a boon for most small businesses which are growing fast.

As wonderful as this device sounds, it does have its own fair share of drawbacks.  Although this device is capable of multiple functions, trying to get the device to perform more than one of the functions at the same time is near impossible.  Also most stores retail this multi-function device without an automated document feeder.  This means, manually feeding documents to the device all day long.  This is undoubtedly a monumental waste of time.

Having said this, being clear about your office needs and being reasonable in your expectations, would most certainly help you get your hands on an efficient printer scanner copier fax for your office.  The task of choosing the right multi-function device is extremely hard, because manufacturers have thrown out a large variety of this multi-function device into the market.  This is mainly because users range right from the individual home user to the multiple users of a large office.

Determine your use and only then go ahead with the purchasea printer scanner copier fax.  Make sure that it has the adequate capacity to serve your office.  Ask for a concrete after sales service plan.  Inquire in great detail about the speed, resolution and memory of the device.  Shy away from multi-function devices which do not have an expandable memory.  Like a computer, the multi-function device too functions better with more memory.  This important feature would come in handy, whenever you desire a more efficient all-in-one printer.


The functionality of the all-in-one printer is a boon to small business owners.  The self sufficiency offered by this multi-function device is what sets it apart from the other devices for office use.  The mountains of documents which inevitably stack up in each small/home office are taken care of quite easily by the all-in-one printer.  Equip your office with this multi-function device and think of technology as a partner, who will help your business scale greater heights.

Digital Copiers - Everything You Need to Know About Buying a Digital Copier

All About Digital Copiers

Exactly What Is a Digital Copier?
Technology is truly something to behold.  Gone are the days when analog copiers reign supreme in the business world.  Thanks to the continuous search for the better and best, digital copiers are now the trend... and rightfully so.


One of the advantages of digital-copiers over their analog counterpart is that they have the ability to store documents into memory.  To put simply, the information is imprinted on the drum through a laser, the document gets printed, and the image of the document is saved in the copier's memory.

This leads to two benefits:
First, you can have a document copied just from the memory.  Say you forgot the document in your cubicle.  You can save yourself from a trip back, if the document has already been copied and stored in memory.

Second, since the document is already in memory, you can send it electronically to other devices provided that they can receive the information.  Examples of which are computers, fax machines, and even some phones.  This saves time, not to mention paper.  You do not have to wait on documents from the main office to be sent through FedEx.

Another aspect of digital-copiers is that they can generate more than one set of copy with just one scan. You do not have to run the original document ten times to have ten copies.  If you only need two copies of a document, this is not much of a benefit.  On the other hand, if you are in the business where hundreds to thousands of copies are needed almost every day, then you better invest on a digital-copier or two.  You can leave it all to the digital copier, to do other pending tasks, and comeback for the copies later.

Next, digital copiers produce copies of unsurpassed quality.  Digital-copiers produce high quality copies that more often than not, are hard to tell the original from the copy.  Compared to other copiers, digital copiers are preferred by majority for this feature alone.


Best of all, maintenance cost is relatively cheaper.  The ink or toner used by digital copiers create more copies than the cartridges normally used by analog copiers.  While buying a digital copier, it will cost you more than other copiers, in the end, you are really saving money.

If you are looking for a digital copier, HP, Xerox, Toshiba and Canon are some of the brands known for their digital technology, copiers included.

Stop Going to the Copy Store, Be Your Own Printer - Benefits of the Multifunction Copier

In today's business there is always more than enough work and never enough time.  There is constant running to the printers for meeting documents, advertising flyers. With just a regular copy machine, trying to make copies yourself will have you spending hours standing by the copy machine.  Investing in a multifunction printer can eliminate all of that time-wasting and then some.  It is your copier, printing service, fax machine, scanner and binder all in one.


The Features
Multifunction copiers have many features so it's best to know what all your needs are.  If you already have faxing set up in your business or home business you would not need a multifunction copier that had a fax machine on it, but you may need one that had a scanner feature on it, or that deals with colored copies so on and so forth.

Most multifunction copiers feature:
·         Faxing
·         Printing
·         Copying
·         Scanning
·         Stapling/Sorting
·         Color and black and white printing

What to Look For Before Buying
It is advised to look out for certain things before you just go jump in and buy a multi copier.  Your multifunctional copier is about to eliminate the high cost of outsource printing.  Review the type of document handling you do most and buy accordingly.  Business cards a regular necessity and your chosen copier should have this feature.  No more placing high volume orders for business cards you don't need.  Remember to consider brand names.  This is one case where they do matter.  Top Arlington Heights copier brands include Kyocera, Copystar, Konica-Minolta, Sharp, Ricoh, Toshiba and Xerox.

Speed - Standing in front of the copier waiting for it to slowly work creates hidden costs in valuable time.  The higher the speed of the multifunction copier, the more it is going to cost you, but do you not save money in the long run when the workload flows more efficiently?  Speed is good so you want to get the fastest model you can afford.  Over 20 pages per minute is highly recommended.

Memory - Same thing goes for memory, the more memory the higher the cost.  If you are using your multifunction copier for a home office or small business the standard 8MB will probably be okay.   If you are dealing with larger documents, then a higher memory such as 64MB may be in order.

Automatic document feeder - Gone are the days of having to self feed the paper into the printer because if you lay down too big a pile of paper on the printer, you'll end up with a paper jam.  With the self automated feature you do not have to worry about that, simply load in 30-50 sheets and let it go.

You'll wonder how you ever functioned the old way.  Isn't it time you did your business a favor and treated it to first-class products and service with Las Vegas Copier?  More importantly - can you afford not to?  Come by our website today so that we can set you up with the Kyocera, Copystar, Konica-Minolta, Sharp, Ricoh, Toshiba, or Xerox multifunction copier which is right for you.

Businesses Do Still Use Printers and Copiers

Yes, we are moving into the modern age but certain realities still remain constant. One of those realities is that businesses do still rely on printers and copiers. As a result there are many options available such as new, used, or refurbished printers and copiers to suit your budget.


Most businesses use printers and copiers for a number of reasons which include keeping track of important documentation such as invoices. Although many of them have an online invoicing system they still require a paper trail for the accountants. Usually accountants will keep a file with all the invoices for a particular financial year. Allocating printed invoices in a file is the ideal way to keep track of important financial records on an annual basis. 

While on the point of invoicing, a customer may require a copy of the invoice for their own financial records, so the business would require a copier for this purpose. Keeping accounting records is a very important reason why most companies require the use of printers and copiers.


Training and development is another reason why printers and copiers are necessary. In medium to large companies, training and development of employees is an integral part of the growth of the business. Training manuals that are developed by Human Resources need to be printed for each employee, and once training is completed a record of the training completed is kept in their development file. Throughout the year, various assessment and performance records are printed and added to the development file. These documents need to be readily available when it is performance appraisal time.

Keeping track of orders is essential in any business. It is a general requirement that an order is placed in writing. In this day and age, an order sent via email is acceptable. The sales person receiving the email order will then print the order so that it can be passed through the departments as part of the order processing system. With the original printed order readily available for each staff member it is easier for them to get the order processed correctly. This minimises errors when processing the orders.

Printers and copiers are still quite popular in businesses whether they are large or small enterprises. Keeping a paper trail is still preferred by many people within an organisation. It is then up to the relevant department to decide whether they require a new, used or refurbished printer and copier.

Printer and Copier Repair Can Be Frustrating

It usually happens when you need to print out or copy important papers when your printer or copier breaks down and leaves you surprised and frustrated.  It doesn't matter what is the brand: Lexmark, Canon, Dell, HP, Brother, Ricoh, Toshiba, Konica Minolta, Kyocera, Panasonic or Xerox - it happens to every brand sooner or later.  Since copiers and printers are made of an extensive array of parts (the most problematic parts being plotters, toners, belts, carriage belts, trailing belts and, it will be an arduous job to find a solution and put your printer or copier back into a working condition.  


You should think about calling professionals instead of trying to come up with a solution by yourself.  Sometimes, printers jam; the copiers and papers stop copying for no apparent reason, but as in everything else, there is a reason that is not so obvious for an untrained mind.  Usually, the repair firms charge unimaginable prices for their services and often, you will be better off if you buy a brand-new printer or copier which will usually cost you much less than paying for those repair services, unless you call an independent copier repair service.

It's not surprising for repair firms to charge the high prices for the services as there are myriads of details in the printer and copier which require years of work experience for the specialist to be able to get through all the details and eventually, to find a problem and fix it.  On the other side, those who don't wish to cover the repair invoice will have to buy a new machine.  Buying a new printer or copier is associated with different set of problems that are obvious for someone who has been working in this industry for decades.  

The problem is that if you choose to buy a new printer or copier the cost of which is lower than the price for its repair then you will face the same tech problems which you faced before buying this machine: in other words, low-priced printers and copiers are made of low-quality materials and usually, they have comparatively shorter life-time than its high-end counterparts.


Those who choose to ask the repair companies for help and don't want to buy another low-quality printer or copier are the ones who make  a wiser choice.  Besides the fact that repair services will remove the stress that usually comes along with an unexpected machine breakdown, they will give you professional suggestions to keep your printer or copier in a desirable working condition.  They will provide you with the tips that you won't find on the internet.   In addition, repair services will also handle the printer/copier resources like sheets and ink cartridges etc.

Why Copier Fax Machines Are An Essential Addition To Any Home Office

If you are considering the purchase of a copier fax machine in the near future, check online to find out what users have to say about the brand of copier fax machines that are available.  The copier fax machines are an essential addition to any home or business.  Even if you never use it your kids will need it for reports, you can copy important documents to put in a safe.


If you have a small business that you run from your home office having access to a copier fax machine is mandatory.  There are so many choices that most people just opt for the least expensive.
When the combination fax, copier, scanning and printer machines first were produced, they were major problems with these products.  Today the technology has advanced.  The machines for the most part are reliable and deliver all of the separate functions well.  The combination copier fax machine is a bargain because it eliminates the need for additional space.  If you can get the total combination of printer, fax copier, scanner and typist, you have a real winner.

Some of the newest copier fax machines have some features that rival more expensive office machines. Before you spend any money on any type of office product do a Google search to see what people are saying about the product.  You can save your self some valuable research time and money by checking the Internet to get the facts behind the fax copier machine that you want to purchase.
Amazon has some great reviews on products that will make you either change your mind about the brand you selected or push you to purchase a particular copier fax machine.

Some of the reviews are funny.  Some of the reviews regarding certain product manufacturers is enlightening.  You realize that it wasn't your fault that the ink ended up all over the floor it was a product defect.  When you decide to buy new equipment whether it is second hand or new, just do a search on the Internet for review of the model and type of copier fax that you are considering.  Be careful purchasing any type of buyers guides that cost from $29.00 for copier fax machines.  These guides are a waste of money.  You can get reviews of these products for free from several websites.


After you do your due diligence on copier fax machines check eBay, but be very careful that you're dealing with someone reputable, cause there are a lot of scammers claiming fantastic prices, for not so good equipment. I saw a copier fax machines starting as low as $20.00 to a high of $425.00, just beware, if it sounds to good to be true it probably isn't.  You can purchase a brand new copier fax machine or choose from several other vendors on line  rather than eBay that offer used copier fax machines as used machines.  You can purchase a name brand machine from any of the brand name manufactures.   I caution you though, do a search for the machine and read what users have to say about the performance and reliability of the copier fax machines before you spend your hard earned money.

5 Things They Don't Tell You When You Buy A New Copier

The copier industry is all about introducing new copiers.  Oftentimes, a copier might even be updated or replaced in a manufacturer's product line more than once a year, bypassing the hundreds of thousands of used copiers such as used Xerox or Canon copiers freely available on the open market.  Why does the copier industry do this, pushing new models when there are plenty of service able used copiers?  We'll address why these manufacturers of monochrome and color copiers do this in the remainder of this article below.


1. Manufacturers Don't Make Money on Used Copiers
The truth is, manufacturers simply don't make any money on used copiers. They might make money off of toner or ink cartridges for the used machines, but there is no money for manufacturers in the market exchange of used copiers.  This cuts into the manufacturer's bottom line, which is why manufacturers are happy to push newer models as an alternative to used copiers.  Whether HP, Lexmark, Xerox, Brother, or even Canon copiers, these manufacturers don't make money selling used copiers.


2. New Copiers Are Not Better Than Used Copiers
Beware of the myth put forth by manufacturers that new is always better than used.  Oftentimes used copiers have capabilities that closely match newer versions, so don't be tricked into buying new when you can purchase perfectly serviceable used copiers.  Technology moves fast, but not as fast as the manufacturers would lead you to believe.  Has paper and toner really changed that much in the last 15 years?  Do you really need a new copier?

3. Your Supplies Will Likely Cost More Than Your New Copier
It's sort of an industry-wide secret that over time the average business or consumer will probably spend more on their copier supplies than they will for their actual copier.  Your laser color copier for example requires you to replace the drum, the magenta, yellow, cyan, and black toners separately.  In addition, you've got all kinds of moving parts inside the machine, many made of plastic, which simply aren't created to last for hundreds of thousands of duty cycles.
Instead of wasting money buying something new that is essentially a wear item, buy something that costs perhaps half as much, and just maintain what's necessary.  Buying used copiers and maintaining only what is necessary will save you a bundle!

4. The True Cost of a Copier Requires Factoring In Maintenance
Manufacturers don't want you to know that copiers are not made to last forever, simply because they make more money selling new copiers, not by selling parts.  There is simply more competition in this space.  While this seems less than ethical, this is a pretty common practice.

One great rule of thumb is to calculate the replacement cost of your toner or ink cartridges, plus the costs of replacing the drum and any other essential supplies over a two to three year period and compare between manufacturers. There's also maintenance of the internals and wear-items.  You will likely find that some models make more sense to purchase when you factor in the cost of maintenance!

5. New Copiers Lose Value the Moment they're Purchased
Copiers, like cars, lose value the moment they're purchased.  Unless you can return it to the manufacturer or to a store and get your money back, you're going to be stuck with a copier that has depreciated in value by 25% to 50% the moment you use it for the first time.  This is why purchasing used copiers, or opting for copier leasing options makes sense.


Used copiers are already discounted due to their used status, and copier leasing makes sense because you are essentially paying for maintenance and rental of the unit, without the headache of disposing of it or deciding when it's time to push out a large sum of cash to buy a new copier.  Copier leasing helps you have one less thing to worry about!

Office Copiers - A Glimpse Of Evolution And Functionality

With evolution of technology, carbon paper copying has turned in to digital photocopying which is a necessity in every office that uses written documents.  Researcher Chester Carlson, who liked to use his kitchen for his electro photographic experiments, invented office copiers when he found a way to duplicate documents using light and electricity and patented his technology under the name of 'Xerography'.  This technology laid the foundation of the digitally enhanced office copiers we see today.



Analog office copiers
The early electric copiers were slow and inefficient.  In order to make multiple copies, the documents needed to be scanned each time, separately.  Somewhere around 1950 to 1960, color toner became available but they were scarce in quantity and therefore expensive and difficult to find.  In order to make color toner commercial, the dye sublimation process replaced the conventional electrostatic technology, and in 1968, the colored office copiers became commercial and easily available.

Digital office copiers
Laser technology later replaced all of the older ones and copying became more efficient.  Digital copiers today come with scan and save options.  Once the data is scanned and stored in the internal memory, it is available anytime later for printing.



Since 2002, every digital copier in the market comes with a hard drive that stores files of every copy made, scanned, or faxed by the machine, enabling the office manager to keep a record of every employee's documents.  Most office copiers come with a security code as well.  Every employee is assigned a specific code so that if any ethical violation or misconduct occurs, the document can be traced back to the worker via the code.

Integral parts of a copier
Document Feeder / Platen
This is the glass plate where the document that needs to be copied is fed.  This part requires intensive care and cleaning.  The glass should be saved from scratches of staples or any sort of smudges.  Some manufacturers offer a special cleaning agent for the glass.

Lens or scanner
The digital office copiers today are equipped with a lens or scanner, below the platen, to capture the image of the document.  Analog copiers used a lens and several mirrors for this purpose.

Toner
The ink used in the copier is referred to as the toner.  The toner is in powder form, and is specially designed to carry an electrical charge.  Single toned copiers use only black tone while polychromatic copiers use cyan, yellow, and magenta in combination with black to produce multicolored spectrum.

Paper infix
A drawer or the tray serves as the holder for the paper.  This tray can hold anywhere from one to thousands of sheets of papers or the user will have to go through the trouble of fixing paper at every instant.

Drum
The image captured by the lens or scanner then transfers to the drum, which serves as a photo-receptive device and transfers the image on to the paper.  The drum has an electrostatically charged surface providing an opposite charge as that of the toner as a result of which when the paper passes through the rotating drum the image of the toner is replicated on the paper.

Fuse r
The fuse r comprises two parts: a heat roller and a pressure roller.  After the transfer of the image from the toner to the paper, the paper passes through these two rollers.  The heat and pressure imprint the image on the paper permanently.

Output tray
Like the in-put tray or drawer, the output tray is also used to hold the papers securely.  As the paper comes out of the copier, the ink is hot and can easily destroy the document by smudging if touched, therefore it needs drying, and tray serves as a base.

Office copier brands
Many recognized and well-known companies have invested in this business. The top copier brands include:
• Brother
• Canon
• Copystar
• HP
• Konica Minolta
• Kyocera Mita
• Lanier
• Lexmark
• Savin
• Sharp
• Ricoh
• Toshiba
• Xerox

Purchasing a well-recognized brand guarantees good quality.  And if an unexpected malfunction occurs, you have the manufacturer's warranty to get it fixed without any extra charges.  However, the choice of which brand provides the perfect copier for you depends on your needs and the number of employees using the machine.

Multipurpose copiers
If you are in the market for a new copier, then the latest multipurpose copiers may serve your purpose. This means that in addition to copying, they also are good for printing, scanning, booklet making, punching , stapling and faxing.  These copiers will probably cost more so you may want to assess whether the added cost is justified for your business.

Copier machines are office supplies that hold an important role for running the business.  When you are about to get this machine, you have to be sure that you get the best machine that fits your needs.  This is because this machine does not come in a one-size-fits-all option.


In order to get the best machine that you need, you should make some comparisons among the available copier machines in the market.  There are three main things that you should compare when you are looking for this machine for your needs. They are; the features, the size and the price of the machine.

Call 847-398-5212, Modern Copiers Offer Higher Functionality

Today's printing and copying technology has evolved to the point when documents can be produced almost instantly.  Copy machines can produce hundreds of reproductions within mere minutes, not sacrificing quality and maintaining the look of the original document.  If your business has been using an older model copier, consider upgrading to a new, modern copier that has the ability to work more efficiency and streamline your document printing process.


There are many brands of copying and printing machines, and the competition between them has driven prices down, passing the savings on to the consumer.  Nowadays, copiers offer unprecedented functionality at prices that were unheard of ten years ago.

When choosing a copier for your office or business, consider the many ways your employees will use its functions.  Digital copy machines optically scan the original document and convert it into a digital format before being processed for printing.  Older, analog copiers optically transfer the image from the original paper to the copy paper, via thru several mirrors and a lens.  When it comes to speed and efficiency, both analog and digital copiers can quickly produce a multitude of documents.  However, most new digital copiers can offer multifunction processes, such as faxing, scanning, and printing.  The digital format allows for cross sharing amongst different media and can streamline your office workflow, and digital copies of documents will decrease the amount of paper you use for printing.

Black and white copiers have been a standard and popular choice for high-volume text document copying.  Black toner costs less than color toner, bringing your overall cost-per-copy down.  If you need the impact of vibrancy though, color copiers can help you make a great impression with high-quality, crisp color documents.  Color copiers are essential if your business needs to make a statement with presentations, brochures, signs or flyers.  Graphic color copiers are available for businesses that regularly produce comprehensive graphic documents where the image is an essential part of the print.

Color copiers are digital and work much like a laser printer, transferring scanned information to a charged drum by laser.  The toner adheres to the charged part of the drum and is heated before being transferred to the paper.   Higher-end color copiers can produce duplications quickly, while the less expensive models need to take multiple passes with the toner to achieve sharp images and colors.


Standard features on color copiers include image centering, border erasing, color balancing and color adjustment.  Higher end copiers offer additional functionality, including colorizing, which allows you to make color copies of black and white original documents by selecting a color for a designated design or area.  However, most users have access to image editing software that can allow them to manipulate the image and reprint it before it is duplicated.  Take into account all the features your employees will need in an office copier before making your purchase.

Call 847-398-5212, Evaluating Copier Features

Experts say to keep the following in mind when buying a copier:

Digital vs. analog: Experts generally recommend digital copiers, because you pay less per copy and get better-quality duplicates.  However, analog copiers are cheaper and more suitable, if you make infrequent copies.



Consider an All-In-Ones instead: Among office equipment, there's been much more product development in multifunction printers than in copiers.  All-In-Ones can print, scan, and fax , -- in addition to copying.  However, many All-in-Ones are slower than a dedicated copier, are usually run at faster speeds and can accommodate the larger paper size.  All-In-Ones also need to be direct connected to a single computer, while copiers can be networked to several computers at once.

If you need duplexing, check the specs: Many copiers advertise duplexing, but unless you love to stop and flip the original page over, look for 'automatic duplexing,' which means no paper-flipping.
The copier features you need depend on the number and types of copies and printouts you plan to make.  Looking at the following options can help you determine which copiers will work in your office.



Following are the various features of copiers:
Size: How much room do you have for a copier in your office?  Look at each copier's dimensions in item listings.  If full-size business copiers seem to be too large for your space, you might want to consider a smaller multifunction ink-jet printer or multifunction color laser printer.

Capacity: How many copies does your business make each month?  How many do you need each copier in the office to handle?  Whether you need 50 copies or upwards of 5,000, make sure every copier you consider has a capacity that meets your needs.   Also look at the manufacturer's approximate "cost per copy." Larger-capacity copiers often have a lower cost per copy, which can save your business money in the long run; whereas the smaller multi-functional inkjet copier/printer will end up costing you a lot in ink supplies.

Paper sources: What type of copies do you need to make in your office?  Copiers typically have one or more fixed-size paper trays and several adjustable paper sources.  Look for paper trays that support the sizes of paper (8.5" x 11", legal, ledger, etc.) and types of paper (such as heavy stock, labels, or transparencies) your business requires.  Also consider a bypass tray if you want to feed special-size paper directly into the copier.

Copier speed: Copier speed is measured in copies per minute (cpm), pages per minute (ppm), or outputs per minute (opm).  If you frequently have large print jobs, look for copiers with faster speeds.  If you plan to mostly make single copies, pay closer attention to first-copy out speed to find out how long the copier will take to warm up and produce your copy.  Also note that more complex copy tasks, such as collating and sorting, typically take longer than printing multiple copies of a single page.

Memory: Digital copiers save documents in memory so they can print multiple copies without re-scanning original documents.  For multifunction network printers, memory is also used to store information about multiple print jobs in a queue as well as multiple pages in a fax.  With more memory, a copier can store more information at once, which can mean faster copying and printing speeds.

Stack less duplexing: Copy two sides of an original document and print double-sided copies.

Automatic document feeder (ADF): Save time copying multiple pages.  Look for an ADF that can feed up to 50 pages in a stack through the copier.

Finishers: Finishers-ranging from automatic staplers and three-hole punches to saddle stitch and folding finishers-are typically considered copier add-ons.

Consumables: Pay attention to the brands of toner, developer, and fuser oil your copier manufacturer recommends and make sure they're readily available.


Security: Many digital copiers allow you to require that users enter a code before they can make copies. This provides a level of security, preventing unauthorized usage and allowing you to analyze current usage patterns by department.  Some machines can also hold faxes or network documents in memory until the correct code is entered then print them.  This prevents confidential documents from being left in the output tray for any passerby to view.

Call 847-398-5212, How to Save Money on Printer Toner Cartridges

The time to start saving money on printer toner cartridges is before you buy a printer.  It's a good idea to consider how much it's going to cost to print a page.  In some cases, the ink cartridge manufacturer will give an estimate of the number of pages a printer ink toner cartridge will print.  These estimates are highly variable and depend on your particular printing habits.  Graphics printing, for example, will consume more toner than text printing.



Consider Operating Costs in Addition to Price
Resist the temptation to buy that bargain-priced laser printer, even if it's a brand name.  Narrow your choice down to a couple of models and investigate the cost of toner cartridges for each.  It might just turn out to be, that the cost of toner ink cartridges for the inexpensive printer is higher than for the more expensive one.  Here's an example: Black ink toner cartridges for an inexpensive printer may cost $25.00 and yield 200 copies.  That works out to a per-page cost of .125.  For the higher priced printer, ink cartridges might cost $35.00 and yield 1000 copies.  In this case, the per-page cost is .035.  So in the long run, the more expensive printer is actually cheaper to operate.  Also, since you don't need to change the expensive cartridge as often, it's better for the environment.  Finally, the more expensive printer is likely to have superior speed, construction and durability.

Other Ink Conservation Tricks
The software that comes with your printer probably gives you some choices for print quality.  As a general rule, the higher the print quality, the more ink it requires.  For every day printing needs, set your printer software to "economy" or "draft" to make laser printer toner cartridges last longer.  It's a simple matter to reset the printer to a higher print quality when you need to.  Also, give some thought to why you print.  If you need to share information with others, why not send an electronic copy rather than a printed one?  If you need to preserve information, why not back it up electronically using a free online backup service?  This strategy works for low-volume backups.  For higher volume, consider a low-cost service like Carbonite.



Finally, to really help save on ink toner costs simply don't print unless it's necessary.   By implementing some of these simple techniques, you'll cut down on the cost of printer toner cartridges.

Call 847-398-5212, What Kind of Paper Folder Should You Use?

Folding paper by hand is time consuming and takes time away from other more important projects. Many businesses use employees to manually fold paper for mailers, invoices and more.  These are commonly referred to as "folding parties."  The end result is usually a bunch of paper cuts and crookedly folded paper.  What if there was a faster, more accurate and more precise way to fold paper?  There is. It is called a paper folder.



Automated folders, in the past, received a bad reputation due to jams and complicated setup and operation.  Modern paper folders have come a long way.  They are more compact, easier to set up, and the jams are very few and far between.  Looking for the right paper folder may be more daunting than setting one up.

Folding machines are set up into several categories, depending on the volume, the paper and the type of fold.  The two most basic categories are friction feed and air feed folders.  The biggest factor between these two types of folders is the paper being used.  Friction feed paper folders do not handle glossy paper well, but air feed (pneumatic) paper folders do.

Friction-feed paper folders are the most common folding machine used today.  They use rubber rollers to grasp paper and pull it into the machine to be folded.  Most friction style models can handle standard 20lb copy paper.  You will, however, have to check to see if the paper folder you are looking at can handle thicker cardstock.  Many machines can, but you will want to verify this before making a purchase.

Most friction-feed models can do a single fold, a Z fold and a C fold.  Additional folds, such as a gate or French fold, will depend on the machine being used.  The Z and C folds are the most common used, due to the fact that these fold paper for a size 10 envelope.  A Z fold looks like the letter Z and is accordion-like in shape.  A C fold looks like a letter C and opens like a letter (often referred to as a letter fold).

Friction feed folders are typically available in manual setup, semi-automatic and fully automatic designs. The names are self-explanatory.  Manual setup paper folders require the folding plates to be manually adjusted.  Semi-automatic designs require some manual adjustments and a fully automatic paper folder is controlled by a computer with the folds being set automatically.


Air feed machines use an air compressor to suck paper into the machine, rather than use a rubber wheel.  This allows these types of folders to work with glossy, slick paper.  Pneumatic paper folders are commonly used in print shops and generally handle a higher volume of paper than most friction feed models.
