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.

Have you noticed the Kyocera 'link'? Take a look at the LCT on the right side of this Epson C20590...... it's the Kyocera PF-770 in Epson color.

Marin, you are correct. Was also told that the finisher is also Kyo, but they would not be staying with that finisher. Connect with me via email or PM, there may be some opps for you with Epson

Hey Art have you been seeing this machine out in the field yet? How is it performing if you have. Epson just sent me info on adding their product line, I gotta say I'm intrigued, but don't really see any reviews of the product from anyone I know in the industry.

I haven't seen one in the field yet. There are a few dealers on this site (pretty regular) that took that product on. @Jason H or eddy jones. they might be able to tell you more than I can. I do like the product though!

@printguy @Art Post We have not sold a single one yet. Most people seem to have no interest in ink. I like the product. It is a Kyocera finisher. The problem with the finisher is that it slows the machine down to half speed. So ultimately someone is getting a 50ppm system, not a 100ppm if you have the finisher. Space is an issue if you have the finisher. I talk about the product to everyone but most people revert back to a toner system. I don't think this is going to be a game changer as...

Thanks for the info @Jason H . That's unfortunate, however I get the aversion to ink. Looking at this product it appeared Epson had perfected it. However I don't think I could sell a copier that has a huge paper curl. I never thought it would have a page curl as there is no fuser.

I think the part of the problem is even though the ink is dry, it has a moist feeling to it. When it drops off into the trays there is a hump (see pic) that the paper drops out on. I think that is part of the problem with the curl. The prints look good and once I lay the paper out on a desk it flattens out but in my opinion it just does not demo well with regular paper.

interesting, I know wonder if Epson demonstrated the device with heavier paper at a few of the events I was at. I didn't see any curl. Not saying that it doesn't, but it wouldn't be the first time peeps did a "controlled" demo

Ill try to do a video once the machine gets back to my office. It is on a truck back from one of our branch offices now. I just don't think it demo's well in front of the customer.

Take Aways From MY Recent Trip to InfoFlex 2018

Art Post ·
The next time I go to Indianapolis it's going to be by plane and not by car. It was a last minute decision on whether to make the trip or not. Thus when I looked at the flights and saw that the cost was almost a thousand bucks, I decided the make the drive. On the way out I did two six hour drives and stayed over night in western PA. But, the trip back I had to make in one day. It was fourteen hours from start to finished and I was mentally drained by the time I arrived home in Highlands.

Color Label Press University "Glossary of Terms" Part Eight, Course One

Here's a short story for all. About a month ago my wife asked me to go shopping with her because of a recent snow storm here in the East. I don't like food shopping, but at times I do need to do my part. My wife took me to some new fangled market, and I must admit I was floored with the quality and selection of the foods that were offered. However what intrigued me the most is that 25% of all the products for sale had a custom color label. There were hundreds if not a thousand of these...

Funny, I was hoping to post of these each week for the next 12 weeks or so. It's been a month since I posted the first blog for "Color Label Press University "Glossary of Terms" Part One, Course One". Color Label Presses can be used as seeding devices in larger Print4Pay opportunities, or help that dealer or rep get a conversation going with an account where they have never had any traction with MFP's or IT services. In addition, the competition is ripe for takeover. Let us not forget about...

MFP's, Copiers & The War for Ink vs Toner Devices

Be Prepared. Is the motto of the Boy Scouts, and I guess know they are just Scouts BSA. In any case, someone one asked Based Powell, 'be prepared for what?" Baden responded with, "why, for any old thing." The imaging industry is changing again. There's a new war on the horizon for A3 & A4 MFP's, and it's not A3 vs A4 anymore. It's the war for "toner vs ink". Recent events both press releases, forum gossip and Linkedin posts shows that dealers have started to embrace A3 ink MFP's. Those...

Yes, Since Summer is winding down, I thought I'd get back in the groove with the glossary of terms for Color Label Presses. It was a few months ago when I went cold calling in South Jersey. I was on the lookout for copiers but also wanted to keep my eyes open for companies that could benefit from a label press or a corrugated press. If you're not familiar with a corrugated press that device will allow a user print graphics for use on card board boxes. I was able to find three companies that...

I Had an Awesome Day and Didn't Sell A Copier aka Print Device

I'm thinking it was 2006 when I first met Dave. Dave had this really cool setup for printing color envelopes on one of the first Oki color A3 laser print engines. At that time Dave definitely had one printer running and If I remember correctly had a few more that were primed for back ups. Back in 2006 it was quite uncommon to see a color laser printer that would feed envelopes without wrinkling them. Could have also been because I only carried the Ricoh brand and back in 2006 they were not...

From what I remember I do not think I would want to hand out brochures from a ComColor device. Were they not more for communication than presentation? I know it has been awhile for me so perhaps they have evolved. Just sayin'.

I am not sure what you are talking about since RISO has stacks of brochures that are being handed out everyday. I know a year ago RISO was updating the brochures so maybe the end user was not able to get one in that transition time

Re: MFP's, Copiers & The War for Ink vs Toner Devices

SalesServiceGuy ·
I have not yet competed against an A3 inkjet copier but I work with a dealer who has access to the HP line. He has one in stock but is unable to sell it yet. The last 10 A3 MFPs he sold were all laser. For quality prints, the HP needs premium paper. Customers are also very reluctant to leave toner based MFPs. They seem indifferent to the difference between Laser and LED technology. More than 50% of Xerox's current A3 product line is based upon LED technology.

SSG Thanks for the reply. I've seen the prints on both the Epson, and PageWide devices, they are very good when printing on regular bond. You are correct that the best image is with inkjet paper. It's my belief that once reps start showing samples and asking if color stays in house or leave the premise will dictate whether the rep shows ink or toner based MFP's. In addition Device Billing will come into play. That's where the client pays for the ink and a monthly charge for service with...
