Do you have a need to print or copier pages up to 11 x 17 or 12 x 18  for advertising, newsletters or other business applications?  then a digital color copier or laser printers is the best way to show off you work the best at an economical cost.

Printing color pages from laser printers or color copiers gives you the ability produce hundreds and even thousands of pages at a fraction of the cost of using a ink based machine. Plus the color copiers and color laser printers are faster, more durable and can handle heavy paper stock.

If you just need to print color pages then (not scan or copy) up to 11 x 17 in size then consider the HP printer 5500 or 5550.  The other option is Okidata or Lexmark printers. The main difference between 11 x 17 HP printers and the other brands is the ease of repair and low cost maintenance.   On the high end of cost (toners, repairs and maintenance) are Xerox phaser printers and Minolta printers .

If out need a full bleed color printer up to 12 x 18 then check out the Sharps color printers or color copier printers. They provide full bleed quality prints at a low cost. We have several clients who just love the Sharp Ar-C260p model and even refurbished used Sharp copier printer AR-C320 that not only prints in color, it faxes, copiers, and scans too!  Ricoh copiers are another favorite due to durability and quality of output.

HP printer all in ones that print, copy, fax and scan are great choices too, however, they tend to cost more per page us use than true copier printer based machines from Ricoh, Sharp, and Kyocera.  On the high side of maintenance are the Toshiba, Xerox and Canon brands of copier printers scanners.

The other option is quality low page count  used copier printers with warranty. Check out the Ricoh, Kyocera and Sharp brands which are the more durable brands.
