Starting a new business is risky, especially with the current economy. Regardless of the nature of the business, it is important to search for the most economical options on every avenue. Having a high-end printer is ideal if the office has fast-paced, high-volume daily demands. An inkjet printer would be a good match for small offices that print more graphics than black-and-white text documents, but not on a regular basis. But there is a machine that is geared more towards advertising companies, or companies that want to do their own advertising.
Large format printers are built to hold giant rolls of paper that have the width of a banner or poster but with much more length. These printers deliver high-quality text and graphics design and print at a decent speed depending on the complexity of the job. Large format printers always come on a stand and are a rectangular shape, thus a small office area may not prefer the amount of space one of these machines could take up. However, if this sort of advertising is needed, a wide format printer will be much more economical than paying someone to do it.
Another type of company that large format printers are designed for are architecture-related businesses. Printing blue prints and CAD graphics are easy tasks for these devices. An automatic cutter is usually included so when the print job is completed, the printed document is mechanical severed from the role. There are often trays or slots for standard size media as well. Depending on the model, you may have to hand-feed small media types through a single-sheet slot, but just having the option to do that makes a large format printer far more versatile than what meets the eye, doubling, if not tripling its overall value. Sure, the upfront cost is high, but the money that can be saved will have your large format printer paying for itself.
