11 X 17 Copier Needed?

checklistBoston Copier’s Tip of the Day: Don’t Pay For Unnecessary Tabloid 11″ x 17″ Copying Capability

Boston Copier has discovered an interesting anomaly when it comes to companies choosing whether they want their new copier to be able to perform Tabloid copying vs. 8.5” x 14” copying. Even though most companies scarcely use Tabloid printing in the day-to-day operations of their company, they opt for a copier that is able to make Tabloid copies simply because there is always that “possibility” that this option might be necessary. This is a fatal and extremely expensive mistake. Boston Copier has found that this simple decision can cost your company around $2500 to $5000 in extra expense depending on the copier model chosen.

Boston Copier also found that there are other devices that a company could choose exclusively for their Tabloid printing needs much cheaper than opting for a copier that has this capability. If a company doesn’t absolutely have to have the ability to print Tabloid copies, they should chose a machine that copies in 8.5” x 14”. An 8.5” x 14” machine is an effective and cost-efficient copier with an average cost of $1,499 at Boston Copier, whereas a Tabloid-capable machine’s average cost is around $4000-$8000.
