Workflows have changed a lot over the years, with more work being produced in-house by employees, thanks to advances in technology that make it possible for people to get more done in less time. And that includes business-class printing. No longer does your company have to outsource printing, because advances in print technology make in-house printing an affordable and desirable option.
So what are the barriers to in-house printing that might be holding your business back?
- Cost: The cost of printing includes the paper, ink and energy it takes to keep the technology running, along with the maintenance of keeping the machine in working order.
- Speed: A slow, lagging printer can kill employee productivity and tie up a printer for other uses, making it a deal killer rather than a reliable in-house printer.
- Quality: Business-quality printing demands bright, vivid colors and crisp blacks that look professional and reflect well on your brand.
- Efficiency: An inefficient printer that eats through ink cartridges and electricity will soon eat into your bottom line, making it a poor alternative to off-site printing.
Alternatives to lasers for print speed
There’s a new class of printer that delivers business-class quality with more affordable consumables for companies that print 6,000 or more sheets per month. It’s the HP PageWide, and it works differently from the often-relied-upon laser printer. Instead of using printheads that move back and forth, it relies on a stationary printhead that runs the width of the paper. As a result, it prints fast – as fast as 75 pages per minute; that’s close to double the speed of the average laser printer. With speed like this, the HP PageWide eliminates wasted time and printers tied up endlessly on large print runs.
Bigger printheads for better performance
The HP PageWide has an integrated printhead and ink delivery system that maximizes ink output in a single pass. Ink storage is kept separate from the printhead, making it possible to include more ink storage capacity, which minimizes the need to change cartridges between print runs. It also includes a secondary ink reservoir that can allow the printer to continue for another 500 pages after the primary ink cartridge has run out. And it uses HP Scalable Printing Technology (SPT), which is a thermal inkjet advancement that applies ink drops with uniform volume, speed and direction for consistent image quality.
