It depends on how well your current label press is running. How often are you calling in for repairs? Is it meeting all your needs? Did you buy your current label press outright? Most people can afford a new label press through leasing where there is no capital expenditures and no down payment. OnSite Printers and Label MakersUSA firstname.lastname@example.org
That is not true, if I am calling you, I am usually calling to get more information to find out what you need or to set up an appointment per your request. I will never put pressure on anyone to buy a machine.
I am not a high pressure salesman, I would like to think of myself as an expert in my field. When you make a call to me, I will answer all your questions to the best of my ability. I am here to answer your questions about the multi-functional copiers or the label presses that I sell, I will not push you into anything. I realize leasing or buying new equipment is a big decision and that’s why I think it’s so important to talk to someone like me so that when the time comes and you need to replace your office machine, you get fitted with the right one that your company needs.
It’s hard for most company’s to pay 12 or $15,000 on a new multi-functional copier. Most companies however, usually can afford a low monthly payment in terms of a lease. Yes, most companies that need a machine for their business will go with a lease that will also have a maintenance plan and even the consumables wrapped up in the lease where the company will not have to worry about any unforeseen costs.
I am a dealer for Muratec. In my opinion Muratec is the best brand out there. Muratec is a world wide company and the best part of this for the DFW area is that the headquarters for the whole United States is based in Plano, Texas! It’s a thrill for me to be able to take my customers, the ones that are interested and have the time, to take a tour of the company. They also have a great demonstration room where you can see the multi-function copiers and also the label presses, and be able to run them!
Getting a finisher for your label press is a huge deal. It’s like night and day! A finisher allows you to die cut your label where if you didn’t have this feature, you would only get precut label’s. An example would be someone selling a jar of honey, they have a picture of a bee getting nectar from a flower. This looks like a great picture in itself, its on a precut label which is square. Now imagine that same picture only the flower and the bee have had the excess sticker cut off to where now that bee and flower really stick out and makes that whole label, “pop!” That’s what a finisher can do for your label press.
Quality would be a good word in contrasting the differences. An ink label press, when you compare the labels between the two, it has more quality than the toner label press. The ink label press is more expensive also, but well worth it. The label’s are more vibrant and clear.
It really depends on how often you use the copier. I have seen copier’s last 10 or 15 years. Copier companies will usually only carry parts for the machines for 5 to 7 years depending on how popular that model was or how many of them are out there. The other consideration is the technology, that’s why lease’s are so great, because usually after 3 to 5 years, people are ready for the latest model. Another big problem with the older machine’s is that they break down often and become unreliable. The software on the computers are also being constantly updated, while on the copier side, this may not always be the case. This means the copier will take more and more time to process a job the further in the future it goes.
Usually the type of brand of paper you use is not as important as how many pounds it is rated at. With multi-function copier’s, it is recommended that you us 20 pound or 25 pound paper. This is the paper that you should be putting in your cassette trays. Any higher or lower poundage paper will cause paper jams or excessive wear on the pick-up rollers and paper path assembly’s or just strange problems. Resume paper or heavy stock and envelopes should be used with the multi-purpose tray located on the side of the copier.
That depends on the paper size, 8.5″ x 11″ will have 10 reams per case. Paper that is 11″ x 17″ will have 5 reams to a case. Legal, which is 8.5″ by 14″ has 10 reams of paper per case.
