Wide format printers are a great way to grow your business by expanding your printing capabilities. If you find yourself outsourcing large print jobs or products, you can bring that business back under your roof with your own wide format printers. Wide format printers can print larger items and cut down your turnaround times. They can run anywhere from 18 to 100 inches wide which allows you to create large banners, posters, or small items in greater quantities. You can also print on multiple mediums like vinyl and metal with different types of ink.
Incorporating Wide Format Printers
Investing in a wide format printer, or printers, is expensive but can be well worth the payoff. A wide format printer will generally cost anywhere from $1,500 to $10,000 depending on the size and brand. Depending on what type of printer you need, you may need to make some changes to your building to will house your printer. Besides obviously being larger than a regular printer, certain ink types need more ventilation than others so that is something you definitely need to take into consideration.
Reduce Your Costs
There are a few things you can do to protect your investment and reduce your cost of operation. Use an account manager tool to track the cost of a printed product so you can adjust your profit. Also, be sure to get regular maintenance and cleaning done to avoid jams or break downs. It is important that you have your printers set up by a professional since they must be properly aligned for correct printing and cutting. You need to be sure you are using the correct ink and medium that the printer was built for. If not, you will lose money on frequent breakdowns and repairs.
