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, 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.

Call 847-398-5212, Advantage of Sharp Copiers

Sharp copier is one of the most reliable copiers around.  It is recommendable for its ability to do a multiplicity of printing, coping, scanning, & faxing tasks, yet giving you consistent results each time out, unless you tamper with the settings.



They come in many different varieties and it is up to you to go for the one that is suitable for the kind and amount of work that you have to accomplish and also one that is pocket friendly to you.
Many factors come into place, once you consider buying a copier.  One, you will have to consider the size of the machine depending on how much space you have in the office.

Secondly, you may want to know the features that are within the copier so that you do not miss out on a feature that your kind of work may really need and demand. On the other hand you do not want one that is too complicated for simple use.



Thirdly, with the ever changing technological advances, you may feel that it may be expensive to replace your sharp copier, every time there is an advanced model of the same, in the market.  You may therefore want to consider renting one from the rental shops.  However, this option will require you to know how much the rental stores charge per month and the policy they have in regard to maintenance and repairs.

More information regarding the sharp copier may be obtained from the Internet.  You can then verify this information from the sharp copier office stores or from their authorized dealers.  If you want, you may also consider an Independent Reseller and possibly get a savings on certain new and refurbished models anywhere from 25%-75% of MSRP.  Once you have all the details on your finger tips, all that remains is for you to select the copier you want, pay for it and transfer it to your office.

Call 847-398-5212, Office Laminating Supplies - The Key to Versatility

Different manufacturers offer laminating supplies for all your laminating needs.  However, if you are not a professional laminator, it may be difficult on your part to choose the correct materials you will need.  All you want is the best lamination materials, for all your lamination projects, so you need to get the best supplies from the right manufacturers.  If you are new to lamination, here are the laminating supplies you will need to purchase to have the versatility in your work.

Laminating Machine
The most important laminating supplies are the laminating machines themselves.  The machine is the most expensive part of the whole lamination process; therefore, it is important that you choose the best one of them for your needs.  The machine comes in all different sizes.  It can accommodate any size - from the largest poster to the smallest piece of paper.  Before you purchase the laminating supplies, determine the need for your office.  If you laminate only small materials, an average-sized machine is more practical, as it is far less costly than the larger ones.  Another choice for laminators is the hot and cold types.  The two differences are in the temperature requirement.  The hot laminating machine uses mainly heat to laminate materials.  Of the two, this is the most common type because it allows permanent lamination of most materials.

Laminating Pouches
Laminating pouches are plastic lamination supplies that hold the material for lamination.  All you need to do is, just insert the document inside the pouch and feed it into the laminator.  Once it passes thru the hot laminator and pressure rollers, the layers of the pouches adhere together and seal the document.  You can trim the excess parts of the pouch using scissors or cutters.  Laminating pouches come in different sizes and thicknesses.  Although you would expect to pay a higher price for the thicker laminating supplies, the price is reasonable for the amount of protection they provide.

Laminating Films
Laminating films are an alternative to lamination supplies for the pouches.  Like the laminating pouches, you just have to insert the document in between the film and feed it into the laminator.  These films come in varying sizes and thicknesses. You will need to determine your preference before buying your laminating supplies.  Generally, the thicker and bigger the film, the higher the price will be.


Self-Laminating Sheets
Self-laminating sheets are lamination supplies for people on the go.  If you find you are constantly laminating things while you are out in the field, you can bring with you self-laminating sheets.  With these types of laminating supplies, you do not need a laminator to protect your documents.  All you need is to insert the document and the self-adhesive will keep the document safe.


ID Card Supplies
The most common type of ID cards today is of the laminated type.  There are many types of laminating supplies that will fit your ID cards.  They include the hologram type ID cards, magnetic type strips and barcode types.  Other materials are the attachable pins, clips, badge reels, luggage straps and protective carriers.  Using all these laminating type supplies, you can keep all your cards protected.



The knowledge of the different kind of laminating materials, and their uses, as well as, your alternative options; helps you make wiser decisions in purchasing your specific equipment type needs.  With the right laminating materials, you can protect all your documents for a longer period of time.

Call 847-398-5212, How a Heated Roller Laminator Saves Money

Every school has one. Teachers and scrap bookers say it is one of their favorite tools.  Yet, in these tough economic times, the laminator is often one of the first pieces of equipment to remain idle.  This does not have to be so.  With a heated roller laminator, you can reduce your laminating costs without sacrificing quality.
First, let me provide a quick lesson on laminators. Roll laminators come in a multitude of sizes, configurations, and costs.  Laminators generally operate in two ways.  A heat shoe laminator consists of curved pieces of coated metal that surround the laminating rollers.  This metal is heated up and the laminating film is pulled across the shoes to melt the adhesive on the laminating film.  The rollers simply provide the pressure to stick the film to the item you are laminating.  The second type of laminator is a heated roller laminator.   Just as it sounds, the rollers in a heated roller laminator, which are normally made of silicon, are heated and thus melt the adhesive and provide the pressure for laminating at the same time.

So how can a heated roller laminator save you money?  It boils down to two factors: heat and waste. Let's look at each of these in more detail.

Heat Shoe Laminator
In order to melt the adhesive on laminating film, heat must be applied.  A standard 1.5 mil laminating film that is commonly used in schools generally melts around 275 degrees.  Now, with a heat shoe laminator, there is a small gap in between the heat shoe, where the heat is applied, and the rollers, where the pressure is applied. Now because there is no heating occurring in this gap, the laminating film cools down in between the heat shoe and the roller.  This often requires the laminator to be heated to a temperature much higher than 275 degrees, using more electricity and increasing the wear on the laminator's internal heating element.  A heated roller laminator does not require the laminator to be heated over the operating temperature of the laminating film because the film is constantly in contact with the heat source as pressure is applied to the item being laminated.  Lower heat equals less electricity used and less wear.  Not only is this good for your pocketbook, but good for the environment as well.

Heated Roller Laminator
A heated roller laminator results in much less waste than a heat shoe laminator.  Much like inkjet printers, a large part of the cost of laminating does not stem from the laminator itself, but the consumable supplies used.  Standard laminating film can be as expensive as $50 per roll.  By minimizing even just a few feet of waste per roll, large savings can be made.  A heated roller laminator minimizes waste in two ways.  First, when a heat shoe laminator is warming up, only the portion of the laminating rollers that are closest to the heat shoes are being heated.  The back sides of the laminating rollers remain cool.  This results in a repeating foggy pattern on the first several prints that are laminated because the cooler sides of the laminating rollers lower the temperature of the laminating film below the film's melt temperature before the appropriate amount of pressure can be applied.  Unless the laminator operator rotates the rollers during warm up, the first few feet of laminating film is wasted.



This is not the case with the heated roller laminator because the rollers are uniformly heated. Second, the clarity of laminated prints tends to be better with a heated roller laminator.  The laminating film is pulled across the heat shoes in a heat shoe laminator.  Any dust or burrs on the heat shoe can scratch the laminating film as it is pulled across the heat shoes.


In the past, heated roller laminators have been overly expensive when compared to heat shoe laminators.  GBC manufactures a popular heated roller school laminator; however the price is much higher than standard heat shoe laminators.  However, Banner American Products, a California-based manufacturer, recently introduced a low-priced heated roller laminator called the EasyLam School Budget.  The EasyLam Budget is half the price of existing heated roller laminators and is manufactured in the US. Start saving today with a heated roller laminator.

Call 847-398-5212, Different Types of Laminators

When it comes to preservation of your photos and cards or getting that professional and sheen look for your documents, lamination is the best solution.  It is the process of binding two thin sheets, called laminating film, in which the material is placed between the sheets to seal the film for protection purposes.

Laminators come in two types and a variable lengths; namely hot and cold laminators.  Hot ones require heat with approximately 200-300 degree Fahrenheit depending on the thickness of the film to be laminated.  When feeding the material, make sure to push the closed edge of the film or clue side not the open edge or you might damage the item.  Furthermore, you need to wait for 10 minutes for the laminator to heat up before you can feed the item into the machine. Most photographs are not advised to be laminated on a hot one. On the other hand, cold lamination doesn't require heat to be functional, mainly just pressures.

The laminator uses pressure to bind the film and its more preferred especially in areas with children around since it does not emit heat.  It is used to laminate materials sensitive to heat and it saves up on electricity consumption since it doesn't need to be plugged to make it functional, which makes it handier as compared to hot laminators.



When it comes to costing both types of laminator machines have similar price brackets however cold laminator supplies are a bit costly as compared to the materials used for hot laminators. On the other hand, when looking for the perfect service provider of your laminating needs, Correct-Tek Copier Svc. brand is the answer. It handles variety of sizes for laminating, binding and other similar services. You can access them online for shopping.  The brands serviced are mainly GBC, Seal, Ledco, just to name a few.

Call 847-398-5212, When Does it Make Sense to Get Your Printer Or Copier Repaired Vs Get a New One

This is one of the questions which are always asked in the minds of people who have printers or copiers that are often ceasing to function properly.  How frequently your copier or printer asks for a repair, is how often, it is used, and how is it your handling the use of it?  If you handle it in a respectable, proper manner, the life of the printer or copier gets prolonged in spite of calling for frequent repairs with negligence in the handling of it.



If you need the help of a printer repair service provider,  once or twice in a blue moon, it’s okay, but things seem annoying, when you have to call a printer or copier repair professional even once or twice a month.  During the warranty period it is bearable, but what about after that?  Obviously, you have to bear the charges of his service fees and the parts which get replaced, that can get very expensive sometimes.  This begins to only burn a hole in your pocketbook and create a lot of down time.  Now, you have to make a wise choice between getting your printer or copier replaced or repaired.

Here are a few ways to bail you out from this situation, with some good sound advice.  Keep in mind though, that this advice will only work, if your printer or copier'swarranty period has expired and it keeps asking for frequent and regular on going repairs.



First, calculate the repair costs you have already paid out, for making your printer or copier work again in the last six months.  If the costs are more than 60-75% percent of the cost of the printer (when you bought it), you should seriously think about getting it replaced with a new one.  In this case, you will definitely need to consider recycling your printer or copier.  If you still want to stay with your old printer or copier, then it is for sure you will end up paying more, at the end of the year, than what a new printer or copier would have probably cost you.  If you think, you can't afford to purchase a new printer or copier; then you always have the option of getting it financed.   

This way, you will not only get a new printer or copier with a warranty period, but will also get rid of all the stress which your old printer or copier gave you.   Secondly; if that option doesn’t work for you, then you can go a less expensive route and get a refurbished copier that can sometimes even save you thousands and also can come with a warranty.  You can then take the EMIs as monthly costs of getting your old printer or copier repaired, but at the same cost you can expect reliability, efficiency and you will have a much more dependable product that will probably never let you down.

This way, you can easily judge for yourself if getting your old printer or copier repaired is worth the cost or should you just replace it with a new one to make you feel much more relieved and tension free.
