PRINTERS AND COPIERS UNDERSTANDING COLOR.

Color printers and copiers in the past few years have become very affordable. Not long ago most offices had only black and white printing equipment because color machines were to expensive. Nowadays most offices have at least one color printer. We actually sell very few black and white machines any more. Most of the time our customers are asking for color copiers. Every now and then a client will come to us wanting to get a black and white machine. But after finding out how affordable a color machine is they get the color machine instead.

How Much Do Color Printers and Copiers Cost.

On average a color copier will cost roughly 20% more than an equivalent B&W model.

For example this Sharp MX B402 MFP base model from our Sharp Award Winning Line of Monochrome MFPs would cost $89 a month on a 60 month FMV lease.

SHARP MX-B402 COPIER 300

Black & White 40 PPM Multifunction Printer.

  • 40 Pages Per Minute.
  • Network Print Ready.
  • Network Scan Ready.
  • Super G3 Fax.
  • 50 Page Automatic Document Feeder.
  • Scan to Email.
  • Scan to Network Folder.
  • Automatic Duplexing.

 

Compare that to this Sharp MX C312 base model from our Sharp Award Winning Line of Color MFPs for $108 a month on a 60 month FMV lease.

SHARP MX_C312 MFP

Full Color 31 PPM Multifunction Printer.

  • 31 Pages Per Minute.
  • Network Print Ready.
  • Network Scan Ready.
  • Super G3 Fax.
  • 50 Page Automatic Document Feeder.
  • Scan to Email.
  • Scan to Network Folder.
  • Automatic Duplexing.

Both of these machines are fully featured MFPs that work great in a small office or workgroup.

Only $19 difference between the B&W and Color MFP.

Some people think they will save money by buying a black and white commercial printer, and using an inexpensive desktop to handle their color printing needs. But they actually end up spending more money. Because color printer cartridges for low cost machines are so expensive. How much do you spend on color cartridges for your color printer each month? I bet it’s more than the $19 price difference between the B&W and color machines.

What About Performance.

Commercial level color machines have more powerful processors, more memory, and better user interfaces that make them faster and easier to use. A new customer we picked up this week was telling me about how slow his bargain store printer was. He said his new contracts are 30 pages long. And he feels very unprofessional making his customers wait while his printer struggles to print out the contracts. With his new color multifunction copier he is done in less than a minute.

How Much Do Color Copier Supplies Cost.

The supplies can be included in an all inclusive service agreement. Some people call them maintenance agreements but they are the same thing. Our service agreements start at only $36 a month and can include an allowance for both black and white and color copies. The agreement covers all repairs, maintenance and supplies (paper & staples excluded). So no more getting hit with a $300-$400 bill when it’s time for new color cartridges for your laser printer. In addition if you have any problems with the machine or when it’s time for maintenance, it’s all taken care of for you.

Printers And Copiers Understanding Color Summary.
