Cleveland Copier Tip: Avoid The Tabloid (11×17) Capability
One thing most businesses do not need from their copier is the ability to make “tabloid” copies. As the name suggests, this is the rather large 11×17 sized pages commonly associated with newspapers. In the day-to-day business world, such printing is rare. In fact, most business just use standard letter-sized 8×11 for copying and printing. Legal sized printing, 8×14, is also common for certain businesses. Yet, at Cleveland Copier, we find that the 11×17 paper sized is rarely, if ever, used.
Why make a fuss about this? Well, tabloid capability can easily add $2,000-$3,000 to the price of the copier. If a company is looking for ways to reduce costs, this is a smart way, as opposed to skimping on professional set-up or needed features, such as scanning.
As you talk with Cleveland Copier, or your provider of choice, make sure that you are keeping in mind what your day-to-day use is like. Get a copier that meets your normal needs and outsource the rest.
