It has to be laser and heavy duty like that Ricoh you’re talking about. Brother has inkjet and Sharp has small stuff. They are expanding the department so volumes will go up. So it has to be heavy duty

Re: Printing Envelopes Reliably on MPC300

I think Old Glory means A4. Remember, 4 is less than 3 (it's a metric thing). You should be able to create an "envelope printer" by installing a second instance of the printer with the same IP address. In the PCL 6 driver (not universal), you can go into the printer properties, print preferences, detailed settings and rotate the image 180 degrees. When you say the printer "red lights", what is the error? Is it a paper type mismatch? If so, what is it calling for? How may envelopes are they...

They are going to sell all non inkjet printing and all non-production printing patents and downsize significantly. Good lesson for everyone about reacting to the inconvenient truths before its too late. Kodak made too much money off film to accept the transition to digital and never recovered.

So is this built on the Gels technology that Ricoh tried to introduce as a step between inkjet and laser colour in the MFP market and for 'business" desktop printers? My experience with them was they were a real flop.

A single user license costs $99.00 and there is a 30 day free trial. I am not sure why MFP dealers would be trying to promote printing less pages thereby reducing their click revenues while increasing the % Toner coverage on each printed page. I see value in the product and like how it reformats documents before you print them. You could definitely save on your paper costs. It does take up to an extra two minutes per print job to figure how you want to use the software. Toner Save would not...

There are no laser based wide format color systems out there from the major manufacturers. If there are, they are price prohibitive. What your customer would find would be a couple of systems to meet his or her needs. Oce has a TCS400 system which is a separate scanner, controller and printer. They can scan the color document and direct it to print on the inkjet printer. No doubt an expensive output solution because it is ink based. Probably looking at the $40,000 range for this one.

Re: When selling wide format

Inkjet plotting. Outsourcing is perceived as saving on labor costs, but you have to consider turnaround time, travel time if they have to deliver copies for reproduction. I would also consider the scanning aspect. It would be less expensive in most cases to scan your own drawings to archive or FTP site than pay someone who will charge a premium. Scan charges in our area are between $4.00 and $6.00 per page. It all depends on the account.

Your post brings this system to lite, I do not know much about the product, except it is an inkjet system with a wide format scanner attached. My first thoughts is that the ink is usually around .10 cents a square foot. Best quality is on ink jet wide format paper, plus the print speed for copies is probably very slow. Will keep looking for more infor. Please post any additional information here as you can.

did I miss something or have you had the chance to look at their true costs for this inkjet printer? if they will let you look at the last 12 months invoices for purchases they made for the cartridges you will have real world dollars for a monthly cost for the ink. usually that alone can cost justify even if you have todo a guestimate on the volume that goes on the printer.

When purchasing printers or multifunction copiers for an office, trade-offs are typically made. Is the speed appropriate for a workgroup or a department? Is color or monochrome output sufficient? If color, would ink technology or the faster laser technology be better? Typically, if color output is needed, the user must decide between the photo quality of an ink technology or the slightly more grainy output of a color laser. Of course, the color laser can print much faster than the ink...

The best bet, in order to maximize his return on the investment he made in the system, is to print 2-up on 12 x 18 and cut. If Inkjet quality is acceptable, the Memjet would be a solid & affordable option. It's speed is quite impressive, but based on what I've seen, the print quality still doesn't stack up to laser, regardless of the paper stock.
