Submitted by Mary Shamburger on Fri, 10/07/2022 - 10:00

Did you know that some printers/copiers can range from $1,000-$100,000? 

That makes it all the more significant that you get the right office machine in place for your company the first time around. Because wasting money on an insufficient machine can be significantly costly and frustrating.  

The number one thing you can do to make sure you get the right printer in place for your company is to educate yourself on all you need to consider before purchasing a new machine. 

We’ve accumulated a vast amount of knowledge during our almost 40 years in the printer/copier industry, and thus, have become intimately familiar with all that goes into finding the perfect printer.
