Before purchasing a personal copier for your Charlotte area small business, check the manufacturer’s recommended copy volume. Many smaller machines may not have the capacity that you require. You should also determine the size of the paper feed trays. Select a model that holds at least 250 sheets. This will minimize the amount of time you spend refilling the trays. In addition to making copies from the glass bed, the copier should be equipped with an automatic document feeder capable of holding at least 25 sheets. Evaluate other features that you may need such as duplex printing, collating and sorting.
You may have to purchase a larger machine than anticipated. A possible way to save money is purchasing a multifunction business machine that combines copying, printing, scanning and email functions. Acquiring one machine that meets your needs, rather than several, may reduce your overall costs. If you need help evaluating the various machines that are available, give us a call.
