Wide Format Printers: To Upgrade or Not to Upgrade?


If you have wide format printers in your workplace, you already know how much these machines are capable of. However, the truth is that there are even more benefits waiting for you--all you have to do is know when to upgrade. Here's a closer look!

Benefits of Upgrading Your Wide Format Printers

Wide format printers are a significant investment, but they more than make up for their initial cost by saving time, money, and energy on some big (and impressive!) projects. However, just like other machines, your wide format printers will slow down over time. The benefits they once provided will start to taper off--and soon, you might feel like you can't rely on your printers at all.

But is an upgrade really worth it? Let's take a look at a few benefits that might just convince you the answer is yes:

  • Newer machines are faster.

Although wide format printers are, in many ways, the workhorses of the business world, they aren't invincible. An older machine takes more time to get the job done--and as it ages, it'll get even slower. For many companies, that's reason enough to upgrade: You don't have time to wait around for an ancient machine to finish one print job at a time.

  • You'll save money in the long run.

Buying a new machine always seems like a big investment--but consider how much you're spending on those old wide format printers. Downtime, repairs, maintenance, ruined print jobs--it can all add up, and the worst part is that you might not even realize it's happening until you've already wasted a good chunk of your print budget. Naturally, upgraded wide format printers won't have these problems (or these costs).

  • There are new features and functions available.

Wide format printers are impressive, but new wide format printers have even more to offer. If you don't want to miss out on the latest and greatest in wide format functionality, it might be time to consider an upgrade.

In conclusion, wide format printers are trustworthy and hardworking--but not even these machines will last forever. Keep an eye on your fleet as it starts to age, and remember, there are all kinds of benefits associated with upgrading.
