I have an IT friend who names the printers on his client's networks after the Seven Dwarfs. If he runs out of dwarfs he uses other Disney characters. I always know when I'm in one of his client's offices.

We just found out that the C730DN LED Color A3 Printer has been pulled from the market. They won't tell us why. We have had no problems with the ones we have out. Anyone out there have any additional information about this?

Finally got a response from Ricoh regarding the SP C730DN: The product has been suspended. There were reports of poor image quality and failure of the PCUs to reach published yield in other regions so RCL decided to suspend shipments. There is a fix planned but we were not happy with the schedule. We want to minimize the disruption to our end-users and to our business. We have been working with Service, Supply Chain and Finance to manage the issue. Service is contacting Dealers who purchased...

I wasn't selling Ricoh 25 years ago, bit you're right the 1224 was a pig, but guess they had nothing else to replace it that's why they did not pull the unit.

Re: HP Launches Instant Ink Subscription Program

dimaxusa ·
Some time ago I read that HP loses around 40% on every inkjet device they sell. Razor and blades I guess. How much can it cost to make a low end printer that works for a couple years or whatever? Lets hope that HP doesn't figure out how to totally destory the supplies and service business for the rest of us. If it wasn't for super high OEM supply costs would the MPS biz be worth it? I hope they don't figure out a good way to lock out vendors with supply discounts and easy blended device costs.

I'm really bummed that no one can find the time to chime in. I'll start it off with something Adrian gave me via email. Eye-catching graphic. Dan Kennedy is using the “Top Secret” graphic to catch his prospect’s attention. My personal favourite is to use an envelope printed with my company logo in colour. This gives some branding art to my envelope to differentiate it from other pieces of mail they might have.

Re: Printerpoint Expands Large Format Printer Management with New KIP, Océ and Ricoh Models

At 5 bucks a month and no minimums that seems to be a good offer if you only want to monitor a few wide formats, right? But if you have a fleet of 500? That's $2,500 per month. I understand that not every client will want the monitoring. I'm out in the street every day, and probably the biggest complaint I get from clients is that they can't have more than one toner of each color on hand, I hear this from net new prospects also. This is a good fit for wide format market place, and I can see...

I heard that the difference between the 340 and 360 is something like a chip or firmware update that needs to be purchased from OCE. Thus you are buying a 4 page per system and the chip or firmware increases the speed to 6ppm. Is this correct>

Re: Ricoh Adds New Color Envelope Printer

jlsquared20125 ·
Art, When you get the chance take a look at the iQueue software that comes with this system. It is a very complete package which includes the ability to automatically recognize Spot colors, and allows you to manipulate them. This software will output to just about any device you can load a print driver for. I tested it on a Fiery driven device with excellent results.

I spoke to Epson while at the BTA show on Orlando about this system. The System ships will all of that ink!! I did not even ask what the cost of the replacement cartridges were, I should have. Interesting to see if this system will pan out. Note the "buns" that are on each side of the system. On each side there are two huge bags of ink. Kinda reminds me of Princess Leia hair style!

Re: Epson launches $8000 colour printer

ty for this. Doing the math, black is .00865 and color is .005493 correct. Or are we adding 649 + 1,236 for a total of 1,885 and the dividing by 75,000 to get the cost per page. In that case the cpc would be .0251. tkern, have you sold any of these yet? Thoughts on the product?

Re: Epson launches $8000 colour printer

We are not a reseller for Epson at this time. We are merely testing the equipment and have been for some time. All they gave me is the "list price" for each bag of toner which is what I posted. I would assume CPC would be calculated the same way as a toner based machine. Based on my evaluation we would not be a reseller of the current machine and would wait until a page-wide array machine would come out to consider. The 24ppm is not accurate when printing high quality documents.

Yes, this is the OKI 5-color LED printer. The difference is that Intech has a custom Fiery front-end & has tricked up the engine to run up to 450 gsm. They have a retro-fitted Lexmark CMYK printer that runs up to 400 gsm as well.

Re: 3D Printers & Copy Machines "is there a common thread"?

Czech ·
Hey Art, We just got a desktop 3D Printer in our showroom. I expect it will do great at getting IT folks in for demos. The technology really is cool! But that's about it. From what I've seen, 3D printers have 0 practicality in an office or business environment. Perhaps the occasional school will purchase one. A lot of dealerships sell telecom services on top of copiers. It's a very similar industry: - 5 year contracts - upfront hardware revenue that can be purchased or leased - reoccurring...

Czech Thanx for the response, 3D printing is here to stay. However, it's not about now, it's about positioning your dealership as a technology leader and innovator. 3D printing sales will grow. I look at the 3D industry and am comparing it to the copier industry in the early 70's.

Personally, I think you're right on with your ideas about 3D. I don't know if it will ever have the acceptance copiers had in their heyday, but right now, it's a product looking for a market. I saw something intersting on TV involving a 3D printing application. The company (which was not involved in any medical field) found it could use it's 3D printer to produce a prosthesis specifically designed for children. Children grow and therefore quickly outgrow their artificial limbs. This 3D...
