Xerox Copier Supplies


From a Xerox Copier Supplies Company, you can buy many different types of copier hardware and software items to make your office work function better.  Before buying a copier, do a little research on what activities are carried out in your office or department.  This way you'll know your office and copier needs.  After this, schedule a visit to your local office supplies store with a list of the needed items.


To buy all of the copier supplies on your list, verify from the internet that all of the various supplies on your list are available and the different prices for these many items.  You will also be able to identify the genuine Xerox supplies from those less expensive reproductions that are also available.
You can also buy your Xerox Copier supplies online.  If you choose to select the various supplies in person, look at the many promotional offers that you might find in these stores.  Sometimes you will be able to find coupons on the internet for the supplies with which you will find great bargains that will save you some money.  Some of these supplies could be a little difficult to locate, and as such, just  ask the store personnel who have been trained to find various items that are useful in offices for help.

With a well-written list, you can buy many copier supplies first and know what the total price is for each of these supplies, you can then see about choosing the other office supplies that you may need when you reach the office supply store.   Once there, you should hunt for the supplies that you need very carefully.  This way you can be sure that you will have all the correct supplies needed, that will promote efficient work and make your various documents look great.

How to Buy the Right Copier

Definitions
Business class copiers-Not sold in office club stores.  Sold by knowledgeable and reputable dealers. Designed for higher volumes and dependability.


Office club copiers & personal copiers -Sold in office club stores i.e. Office Depot, Office Max and Costco... For personal and low volume customers.

Cost of Equipment
The cost of a copier can be quite expensive.  Just shopping for price and buying one on cost alone can be misleading and can end up being more expensive in the long run.  This is especially true if you make thousands of copies per month.  You could be paying three times the amount of the price of the copier in toner and supply costs.  It doesn't matter if you are buying one for a business or for personal use.  The first thing you should do is research the cost per copy.

Volume and Cost per Copy
When purchasing a copier you must first research your monthly copy volume.  This is the first step in choosing which copier is right for you.  One easy way to determine this is to think of how many reams of paper you use per month.  Each ream is 500 sheets of paper.  Just multiply that by the amount of reams that you use and you have a fairly accurate assessment of your "copies per month."  The reason you must know this is because it helps you determine you're "cost per copy."  This is how much it will cost you every time you press the copy button.  Now, you take the price of the toner and divide that into the estimated yield and you have your cost per copy.  Example: The toner cost is $100.00 and the yield is 10,000 copies.  Your cost per copy is.01 cents per copy.  Office club type copier supplies are almost always more expensive than a business class type copier.

Service and Repair, Service contracts
Most copier service companies, (not affiliated with office clubs) will not provide you an onsite service contract on an office club copier.  This is because they don't sell them.  Office club stores will normally offer extended warranties but coverage may not be complete.  For example, they might not cover the toner or they won't cover on-site service.  I have had customers call me and tell me that they had to ship the machine off to have it repaired and that they didn't even get the same machine back afterwards. They received a replacement machine.

Many times a business class copier service contract that covers parts, service, and toner and supplies (everything except paper) is less expensive than the toner costs on a personal copier.

Automatic Document Feeder and Feed Systems

Document Feeders
An automatic document feeder is the feeder that automatically feeds your original documents one at a time, so you don't have to stand there and lift the lid each time you have a stack of originals to be copied.  Not all document feeders are created equally.  There are many different mechanisms that feed, separate and eject the originals on all of the makes and models of copiers.  Business type copiers have much better mechanisms than personal type copiers.  When you are in business and you make lots of copies and sets of copies it is frustrating when you can not count on this feature to work dependably.

The most common problems are multi-feeding and jamming problems.  Multi-feeding is when the feeder pulls in more than one original at a time.  Most of the time the copier will not let you know this happened.  It will not show a jam and you may not realize it did this, until you are in the middle of your very important meeting and you have some missing pages.  Paper jamming is another problem where it doesn't pull the paper through correctly and jams.  This is also very frustrating.

Feed Systems
Feed systems are the rollers and mechanisms that pull in your copy paper to make copies.  Paper jams are the most frustrating thing that a person can have with a copier.  Office club type copiers have inferior systems that feed the paper in and as you make larger copier runs the dependability is much less than a business type copier.  I am speaking of my experience of over thirty years in the industry with copiers on both document feeders and feed systems, but there are exceptions and some personal copiers work just fine.

Quality and Longevity
Quality of the copies being made has really improved over the years especially since the digital evolution.  There really is not much difference in copy quality.  I have seen personal copiers that have just as good resolution and copy quality as a very expensive business copier.  That said, when it comes to the quality of manufacturing, sturdiness and just plain quality of the equipment you can see a big difference.

Business type copiers are built to last.  It really depends on your copy volume as to how long each machine will last.  Business copiers are built to last the monthly duty cycles that the manufacturer has designated.  Though sometimes, I feel that they over estimate these amounts.  There are applications where a personal copier will need to be replaced in only one year next to a business type copier that will last seven to ten years, really!

Conclusion
Buying a copier can be expensive, but buying the wrong copier can be a waste of money.  By doing your research ahead of time you can save money and use your copier for many years with fewer problems. Finding a dependable company to service your machine is just as important as buying the right machine.

Guide to Buying a New printer

One of the more perplexing decisions when faced with choosing a new printer is which print technology is going to suit you the best.  At the moment there are two main printing systems: the laser technology, using toner cartridges and a transfer drum assembly; and ink jets using ink tank cartridges and fine-spray nozzles.  The method that will suit you best will depend largely on what you plan to print on your new printer, and cost factors that affect the costs of running it.  Laser printers are possibly better for high-volume printing, with lower 'per page' costs and they have better black intensity text, than most ink jets. Laser printers tend to have a faster page rate but ink jets still offer the important advantages in affordable color printing.


For home use, you'll probably want to print out digital photos or graphics, which makes color a must. The traditional differentiation between lasers and ink jets has been office versus home use; however, color offers obvious presentation advantages for business use as well.  Fortunately, prices for both categories of printers have come down enough to make it practical to purchase both a laser and an ink jet if you absolutely need both color and high-quality text.

The work you do
There are a number of different printer configurations available today, many of them are quite specialized in the applications.  There are specialized photo printers, direct disc CD printers, Multi-function printers, desktop ink jets and high-speed lasers.

If you want a printer that is specifically designed for printing photographs, you will most likely look for a color ink-jet system that is a photo printer, allowing very high quality color output and capable of printing all the way to the edge of the page.  Recent releases by major brands now include all-in-one Multi-function devices that include scanning and printing capabilities.  Many smaller units that are designed purely as a photo-printer to plug directly into your digital camera are also available.  Much the same can be said for CD or DVD printing, with specialized printers available for printing directly onto discs, saving label application.

On the other hand if you are a small home-office worker, then your requirements may be more general, in which case you need to make a printer decision based on the types of documents you produce and how many.  In general terms, ink-jet printers offer high quality color outputs, at a low hardware cost, but high consumable cost.  Lasers offer significantly higher speeds but at a much higher hardware cost. High volume usage however, reduces the cost per page considerably.

Multi-function printers (MFP) are often ideal for home office or student needs because they combine multiple functions into one unit, usually a scanner, printer, copier fax machine, doing a little bit of everything, and saving considerable desk and office space in the bargain.  Generally ink-jet style printers, some MFP's may trade-off performance for price and convenience (e.g. lower resolution, slower print speed) than if you were to buy a printer and scanner individually.

You can buy Multi-functional printers specially configured for printing photographs, with some machines providing the ability to scan directly from 35mm slides and store digital files and print them, which is ideal for archiving old photo libraries.  However, the scanned images may not exhibit the same clarity and brightness of digitally capture photographs, or as the kind of quality that you can obtain from a dedicated scanner. 

Dealing with Technical Talk
One of the specifications that you will be faced with, is that of resolution.  Up to a point, a printer's resolution determines aspects of its print quality.  Images are made up of tiny dots of ink or toner that is applied to the page, and resolution is the term given to the number of dots per inch-quoted as dpi.  This usually is represented in a two-dimensional matrix (eg: 600 x 300 dpi).  Most printers today support a basic 600 x 600 dpi resolution that produces adequate quality in most instances.  Many ink jets, however, especially photo printers and high-end plotters, offer higher resolutions and more dots in the vertical plane than the horizontal.

Resolution ratings are not the whole story however.  Many printer manufacturers now incorporate smoothing and enhancing features through software algorithms.  This means that some output from printers with a lower dpi looks just as good as that from a higher dpi unit.  And, although some printers have very high resolutions, you're not likely to notice any difference in quality with common print jobs once you go above 600 x 600 dpi resolution.  What you will notice however, is much higher consumption of inks or toner.  It is noteworthy, and perhaps obvious to some, that the higher resolution you are printing at, the higher will be your consumable consumption, and this is the most expensive part of your printer.

Speed is another important consideration.  Vary rarely will you find that your printer performs at the 'pages-per-minute' rate (ppm) that is advertised or cited in the specification.  There are a number of reasons for this including the size of the file being printed, the amount of ink coverage on the page, the proportion of black to other colors, the weight of the paper stock and possibly even the constancy of the power supply of electricity to your premises.  This is not today, that the manufacturers, under laboratory conditions are not able to make the machine perform at spec, just not to rely on the claim as a gospel figure.  However, you can use the speed ratings to make some judgment of performance differences, between brands and models.  If speed is an important consideration, then you can short-list printers that claim to perform above a certain rate and then compare other factors. 

Laser printers use powder toner that is electromagnetically attracted to the page by an image temporarily made on a transfer drum through a laser scanning process, and then fused to the page with a heat-setting system.  This toner is supplied in cartridges, usually one for each of a four-color printing system (cyan, magenta, yellow and black).  Manufactures give some estimate of how many pages of a given size each toner cartridge will print, based on a predetermined proportion of coverage (say 10%). As with the speed claims, these estimates are rarely accurate, but can be used to make some judgment between makes and models.  The higher resolution of image you are printing, the more toner will be used in the process.  Ink jet printers use a liquid ink stored in tanks that are sprayed by very fine nozzles onto the page as they are required.  Just as you replace the toner cartridges in the laser system, you replace ink tanks when they're depleted in an ink jet printer.

It is important to understand that even though the printer might be cheap, consumables is where the manufacturers actually make enormous profits, so be sure to consider replacement consumables when doing your cost comparisons.  With ink jet printers, some have color cartridges in one unit, others have separate color units.  In the long run, separate tanks will most likely work out cheaper, because as one color runs out, you replace only that color.  When all colors are housed in the one cartridge unit, you may have a nearly full tank of cyan when the yellow is completely gone, and you have to throw away unused ink.  Not only does this waste your money, it can also be environmentally expensive.

Cost
There are two parts to your cost assessment of a printer.  The first is the purchase price of the printer itself.  This can vary considerably between brands and models, and is usually differentiated through different features being offered.  However, possibly more important is the ongoing cost, often measured in cost per page.  A typical ink jet printer may cost you 40-50 cents per printed page, depending on how much ink you are using on the page, it may even cost more.  By comparison, a color laser may work out to 15-20 cents per page.  These costs don't usually include the paper stock, and are based on consumables and maintenance costs.  Companies like Xerox often supply large color Laser printers for a cost per page fee.

One cost assessment technique is to estimate how much printing you will do in a given period, load your calculations with a percentage of ink coverage (if you are printing all full gloss and high resolution photographs, for example, you might load the cost per page by a factor of 8-10), factor in the machine cost and make a comparison of what you will spend in a year, including the cost of the printer.

Other things you might consider
How paper travels through a printer can affect your whole printer experience.  The closest you can get to a 'straight through' paper path, the more trouble-free your printer will be.  If all your printing is only on plain white bond paper, then paper path will possibly not be a major consideration; but if you're printing on photographic stock, thick paper, envelopes, transparent film or other materials, then be sure the print path is compatible with your requirements.  How you connect to your computer might also be a consideration, especially if you work with large files where connection speed is a consideration.   Most printers today offer relatively high-speed USB interfaces. You might also want to consider wireless connections or networking capabilities.

When choosing a Laser printer, on-board RAM (read only memory) might be a consideration.  A printer with a standard 64 Megabytes of RAM will be slow to print a quantity of documents that are larger in size than the printer's memory.  If large documents are a consideration, make sure you can upgrade the printer's memory.  The printer driver provides the software interface to your printer, offering you on-screen control over copies, page size, orientation, resolution, text smoothing and paper thickness and type.  Many drivers now include advanced features and enable you to create your own custom-setting profiles for quick selection.  Moreover a good driver provides complete printer management from on-screen, including paper jams and job queue management.  Ink-jet drivers often provide graphical indications of remaining ink levels for each color.

How Long Will a Laser Printer, Copier Toner Cartridges Last?


HP, Lexmark, Sharp, Ricoh, Savin, Brother and other manufactures of laser printers and copiers' office equipment all use the same industry standard of how long a toner cartridge will last.  They use the 5% rule.  However, most people print 7%to 12% on the average.


First, we need to define what is the 5% rule toner cartridge usage on your laser printer, digital copier all in one machine.  When HP toner cartridge specifications says 10,000 pages at 5% it means 10,000 pages of text DOUBLE space on a 8.5" by 11" with 1.25" margins (see below for actual sample of 5% text n page).  If you just send simple memos on your laser printer copier then you are set.  However, most companies especially accountant and lawyers use way more toner per page than 5%.  Here is a 5% (between the dotted lines page of toner on HP laser printer, Sharp copier, Canon printer copier or other brand of office equipment:

Start with this, which is 5% page coverage for a hp printer or digital copier.  You will notice its only two paragraphs long.  If this is all you print on the average then the estimated pages per toner cartridge the manufacture specifies will be close.  However, you will notice there are no graphics, company logos or anything else.  If you print graphs or tax returns your rate of usage will be much higher.

If you are using a color laser printer copier, then you need to be careful; because if the color toner cartridges on your laser printer or digital copier says 5,000 pages then it is not 5,000 each color toner cartridge but a COMBINED total of the cyan, magenta and yellow.  This end of 5% coverage example of text a standard sheet of paper printed on your laser printer, color copier or all in one copier printer scanner device - end of 5 %.

If you are not sure how to get your average page toner cartridge usage, contact us now, to get the information needed to determine your Hp printer all in one, Canon copier printer, Sharp copier, Rich copier scanner or other brand of printing device.  It does not cost you a cent, the information is 100% free for the asking.

Canon Laser Printer: A Review of the Canon D340 Digital Copier Laser Printer


A printer which is designed either for personal, professional, or business use must have excellent quality printing abilities, and a Canon laser printer is my best bet for that.  Specifically as a copier and printer, the Canon D340 Digital Copier Laser Printer is one of the best models that I have ever used.  Let me enlighten you through this review that I have written for that exact purpose.


Design
This model is a nice conventional white printer with buttons which are very easy to use and a small LCD display for essential information.  It looks like any common laser printer and copier, but it's compact enough to be easily set in a room, table, or desk.  The dimensions of the machine are 18'' x 21.4''' x 17.8'' and it has a weight of 35.2 pounds.  It's very bulky and it's not advisable to be used as a portable machine.  It should be settled in a single location which is most convenient for your use.
The LCD display is very small and is only meant for showing important data.  The buttons are intuitive, simple, and very easy to use.  It is not designed for network use so you can only access it through one PC.  The device also has a lot more functions that can definitely help you speed up your work and make better output for an even more productive work pace.

Printing and Other Functions
The device is a printer and a copier in one, so compared to other Canon laser printers, this is much more functional.  The printer can produce output in as fast as 14 seconds per minute, not as speedy as other models but certainly fast enough.  It has a high resolution for enhanced output of up to 1200x600 dpi. The printer also has a toner saver mode which allows you to use less toner for lesser costs.

The copier is the prized feature of this device.  It has a very intelligent copying system which lest you scan once and copy many, so you won't have to keep on scanning a single document to produce multiples copies.  The copy speed is the same as printing, as well as the quality so your copies are just like or even better than the original one.  You can produce 99 copies of a single document in one setting. You can also reduce and enlarge your documents from 5% to 400% and every whole number in between with the zoom feature.  It can automatically collate copies of documents according to the page, so if you're reproducing multiple pages of multiple copies, you won't have to sort every one of them individually.  The 2 on 1 function allows you to print two documents in a single paper so that you can save more paper and help the environment.

Other Features
The 250-sheet tray makes printing multiple pages a lot easier because you don't have to keep on refilling the paper tray.  The automatic document feeder input of the copier makes copying more accessible and less hassling to use, especially if you only need a few copies.  The product is also Energy Star qualified so for environmentalists and nature-lovers, this is a very friendly and safe device.

Conclusion
I don't think anyone would be disappointed in this Canon laser printer.  I have used it for a long while and so far, I have been completely satisfied with its performance.  The Canon D340 Digital Copier Laser Printer is a very remarkable machine and I highly recommend it to all those people who desire to have an excellent laser printer and copier, for whatever purpose it may serve.

More Reasons to Choose a Printer Scanner Copier For Your Personal Use at Home


If you are like so many other people in this day and age, you have found yourself needing the services of a printer, scanner or a copier from time to time recently.  So, you head to the nearest commercial copy service and use one, because you have always thought that you couldn't afford one.


If you had taken the time to recheck what is now available however, you may have been surprised to learn that not only has the price come down considerably, but now you can get all three features in one compact unit that takes of no more space on your desk than a type writer.

Smaller, Lighter and More Compact
That's right! and not only that, but you can also now purchase a machine that also includes fax as well. There is now a wide choice of makes and models from light compact units designed for home use to standing high speed floor models that are capable of handing even the most demanding requirements of a busy office.

Laser and Thermal Printing
They come in three basic types of printing functions, those being laser and thermal printing and what you will be using it for will weigh heavily in your decision as to what type of printer you will need. Thermal printers are capable of printing on a wide variety of media including rough uneven surfaces, as well as a number of types of cloth fabric.

Integrated Memory Function With Memory Stick
Also, the functions that a newer model printer scanner copier will contain in it should also be given close consideration as well.  For instance, the latest printer scanner copiers now come with integrated memory capacity that also uses a memory stick.  With the memory stick, you can easily transfer images and text directly from your computer to your printer, just as you would with any other device that accommodates a memory stick.

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.
