aficiompc2051When looking at copiers, more and more Jacksonville companies are looking to local Jacksonville copier vendor to provide them a color copier. Most reps are more than happy to oblige because color is more expensive (and more profitable) than black and white prints. However, color is tricky and if you’re not careful, you can have a super expensive color copier making very few prints due to the color quality. I have seen people stuck in a 60-month contract with a Jacksonville copier, paying over $800 a month for a color copier doing just over 1,500 pages a month.
Here are some tips to help you save some cash and have a better Jacksonville copier experience:
• Look at print samples of what you print daily, not sample prints from the copier manufacturer. This will allow you to see the colors of what your print will look like on your future copier.
• If using Tabloid, see if it costs more than letter-sized paper.
• See if there are “Coverage Penalties” … what this looks like is this “Color copy/print prices are based on manufacturer yields of 20% average coverage. Coverage above this can result in pricing to be change in a like ratio” — If there is terminology like this, it basically means if you have 40% coverage, whatever rate you just got quoted will double. JacksonvilleCopier has plans that allow 100% coverage at the same price as 10% coverage. Therefore, we have plans that won’t penalize you for going over 20%, saving you money and frustration.
