Although moving to the digital landscape is quite trendy these days, many businesses rely on print to run their business.

If you need to print large volumes of high-quality print documents, a production printer is a smart choice. However, with so many options available, it can be difficult to narrow down the choices and make the best selection.

Here are some tips to help guide your purchase:

  1. Print Volume
    Like all printers, production presses range in speed and the number of pages they can produce per month. Before you commit to a device, it is important to know your print volume to avoid overpaying or underpaying. You want a printer that can keep pace with your need; not sit idle or balk under demand.
  2. Print Media
    The types of documents you’re printing are just as important as how many. Are you printing primarily for an internal or external audience, or perhaps both? Consider what you are mostly printing, such as catalogs, brochures, reports, invoices, marketing materials, or other formats.
  3. Color Needs
    Although production printers can create outstanding color prints, it is not always necessary. That said, when your creations do require color, you want a device that makes color calibration easy. Many models have auto-calibration modes and easy-to-use functionality to simplify the task.
  4. Service and Support
    When making a huge commitment, like a production print device, consider the level of service you want to support that printer. South Florida's only PROS Elite 100 dealer, we ensure that your printers are always running when you need them with unparalleled maintenance and support.
