Commercial Copier Costs
About Commercial Copy Machines and How Much They Cost:
A copy machine makes copies of an original document via one of two methods: digital scanning or analog photography.
The primary difference between a home copy machine and a business copy machine is printing volume, typically measured as maximum pages per month. Commercial copy machines range from 8,000 copies per month on the low end to 40,000+ on the high end. A good home copy machine might cost $120.00 or more; commercial copy machines easily reach prices of $3,000 to $35,000 depending on brand, options, and features. Many businesses choose to rent or lease their copier machine, typically for periods of between three and five years. However, we are seeing a trend of customers wanting shorter lease terms. Rental and lease rates are set based on your expected copying needs, so be sure to determine your current workload before you sign a deal.

What to Look For In an Office Copy Machine:
Ease of use and security are the major differences between digital and analog commercial copy machines. Digital machines allow for “One Scan to Many Copies”—scan once and you can make many copies, even much later, without needing the original document. Analog copy machines require the original document to be present every time a copy is made. Because of their archival nature, though, digital machines can be vulnerable to information theft. Multifunctional copy machines can spare office space and expense, functioning as fax machines, printers, and more, however their complexity should also be considered. Also decide if you need color or black & white (color is more expensive) and whether you want a WiFi-ready machine.
More Buying Tips and Information: Start with the basics such as understanding your day to day needs like scanning, faxing, and will you need a color copier or just black and white copies. Consider what type of connections you will require such as USB, Ethernet, or a wireless connection. Depending on how large your print jobs are you may need a high speed copier that produces 44 pages per minutes, or for smaller offices maybe 10-20 PPM will suffice. Lastly consider how deep the print quality will need to be, such as for reproducing images and photos where as you may require a print resolution between 600 DPI and 1200 DPI.
