Production printing can be an amazing solution for your business. It opens up new marketing opportunities, allows you to print everything in-house, and allows you to be just as creative as you want–but all of this is only possible with the perfect production printer for your needs. Let’s find out how to choose that perfect printer!
Where to Begin
When it comes to production printing, there are a few things you need to know. First, production printers are fast, reliable, and efficient, allowing you to print just about everything–and they’re cost efficient for businesses of all shapes and sizes. However, there are all kinds of makes and models available, so it can be difficult to know exactly which production printer will help you achieve all those things.
Start by asking these questions:
What do we print?
Your needs should absolutely be driving your decisions when it comes to production printers. Ask yourself what volumes you print in, what speed you print at, and what sizes you print in–as well as what material you’d like to print on (because production printers can handle a lot).
What is our budget?
Although production printing is a bit more expensive than you could expect from standard or multifunction machines, you’re also getting a lot more bang for your buck. Remember that the total cost of ownership includes ink, paper, maintenance, and repairs over time.
What does the “perfect balance” look like?
You don’t want to choose a production printer with more functions than you’ll ever use, but you also don’t want production printing to be a letdown. Try to strike a balance between functionality and cost, factoring in your needs and budget.
