Capitalizing on the demand for quality photo printing
To take advantage of consumers’ and brands’ need for digitally printed materials, print service providers (PSP) must have the right technology in place. For PSPs that already have high-quality, high productivity digital printers and short-run finishing equipment, increasing revenue streams will be dependent on offering customers an easy-to-use web interface that makes placing orders a cinch.
PSPs who have yet to invest in the right equipment will find that once they do, they will see a high return on investment (ROI) as they can immediately start to offer new services and build lucrative relationships by delivering better than expected materials in a fraction of the time. However, choosing the right machines is critical to finding success with this new business model.
Even the most challenging printing jobs can be completed under tight deadlines with Canon’s Océ VarioPrint 6160Ultra+ Line. It offers offset-like quality with near-perfect registration and produces 314 A4 images per minute without sacrificing quality. Improved paper input modules increase the size and weight flexibility of usable media, and the line runs non-stop production for up to four hours.
Another printer option to consider is Canon’s imagePRESS C850 series which offers impressive productivity within its space saving design. Supporting a wide range of media including duplex banner printing, this line delivers high resolution 2400X2400 dpi with 256 gradations and a print speed of 85ppm.
