    Wow, thanks for the response that was really helpful, as far as what kinda of work I could get, it will be mostly binders with tabs and a mix of color and B/W. I've been researching used machines and either way its going to be a huge outlay of cash. As a result outsourcing is the only way Im...

    Ive looked online for used printers, namely xerox machines and I am having a hard time finding any. Does anyone know where on the web to look for used machines like a 41xx series b/w or a dc 5000?

    What are those? What are those? As for actual printing, use a gang printer like 4Over or Growl, a lot cheaper than anything you can make with a copier and a lot better quality. Jose Barrios ColorBox Printing Hey Jose, what's a gang printer "40ver or growl"?

    Oh so that explains the "per click" metrics, more clicks equals more consumption. The light is slowly getting brighter:D. I went to American printers website and started some more data mining its helping me sort out the differences between inks, toners and oil and their applications. Thanks...

    ok keith, great info, you mentioned renting your first printers for 50$ each and paying .15/.01 cents per click. Is the service contract included in those fees or is that another fee altogether?

    Ketih, thank you for the reply. Office printers huh... sounds good, you mentioned toshiba and sharp who else would be considered best bang for buck? If you had to do it all over again what would you have done differently? By this, I mean which machines/mfgs would you have used for...

    thank you all thank you all Thanks X33, ive been reading different posts on this webiste (digital printing discussion) and xerox 700 isnt as favored as the 252. As far as the 41xx series it seems to be a favorite in the b/w arena. Milo wilson mentioned getting a used machine with a...

    In regards to fedexkinkos as a threat or a leviathan that cannot be destroyed, it is not my intention to do so however it is no secret that fedex bought kinkos for their store locations and NOT for their print business. Being a tradesman who has completed an apprenticeship I wholly recognize...

    I was thinking on a monthly basis of 50k to 100k of volume of color and b/w. Obviously that might be optimistic but id rather have the equipment that could scale the demand should it ramp up. I love the feedback but does any one have preferences as far as printer mfgs are concerned?
