    Recent quote on Iridesse?

    So we did consider skipping the booklet maker / square fold but it looks to only be adding roughly $100 / mo. on the lease which is about $6k so we think its worth it.

    Recent quote on Iridesse?

    I had them run a sample business card today with "thermography" and you are correct - it left a lot to be desired. I really am impressed with the silver and gold though - really looks metallic / shimmery. We saw a sample using clear and I wasn't blown away, maybe because it was done on a coated...

    Recent quote on Iridesse?

    I did ask for a fixed click charge and they said basically that, that it will increase the click charge so I plan to ask for a 3% cap instead of 6 and see if that goes anywhere. We are waiting for final numbers later this week after they check credit so we will ask the outright purchase price to...

    That's good to know. We sub out a decent amount of thermo stationery, envelopes, bus cards, announcement cards. The ability to do that in house would be a nice bonus.

    Recent quote on Iridesse?

    My husband and I have been discussing this and I've been saying the same - that we get only CMYK version since we don't have a demand for the specialty colors but he thinks if you are going with that machine then you might as well have the 5th and 6th colors and do your best to sell it and add...

    Actually no, that base is included. Thanks for your response.

    I actually just realized there may be a base service charge ($700ish) in addition to the usage and the lease. I remember that being glazed over so I'm double checking with the sales reps. That would seem high, no?

    Anyone get a recent proposal on a Xerox Iridesse lately?

We are located in...

    Justifying Equipment Purchase... Recession... Financing Options - HELP!

    I totally understand your point. The issues with the 1070 unfortunately are the high click, but also its much slower, has a crappy saddle stitch unit, and can't run anything thicker than 80lb cover duplexed so it does serve a purpose in emergencies, but also isn't the best substitute. I do...

    Justifying Equipment Purchase... Recession... Financing Options - HELP!

    Oh wow - do you have to open the flaps of #10's? What sizes have you attempted?

    Justifying Equipment Purchase... Recession... Financing Options - HELP!

    Sounds like you're able to pump a lot of work out of that machine - I saw your volume is pretty high. I think my opinion is skewed because of how much our 1100 is down it seems like we are always behind but if we had a machine functional 95% of the time I think we'd be able to print a heck of a...

    Justifying Equipment Purchase... Recession... Financing Options - HELP!

    That's terrible! What part of the country are you located? The Xerox reps we've spoken to say the supply issues are easing up and that the Iridesse uses different toner etc.. but I don't trust much I hear from a sales rep!

    Justifying Equipment Purchase... Recession... Financing Options - HELP!

    Oh interesting I didn't think to ask that about the GBC unit - I'll definitely check. I agree I've heard many nightmares about Xerox and supply issues. I also don't love what I'm hearing about Ricoh charging $10 for each service call and toner supply order. The sales rep we spoke to said it was...

    Justifying Equipment Purchase... Recession... Financing Options - HELP!

    Pre-covid around 150k per month. Recently around 80k per month but we are outsourcing all our decent size volume to 4over or others because our machines are always down.

    Justifying Equipment Purchase... Recession... Financing Options - HELP!

    Sorry if I confused you - 5k per month was for the Iridesse! What type of volume are you running on your 9210 and 12000? The 9210 is another machine that we've considered but with the finishing the costs really start to add up.

    Justifying Equipment Purchase... Recession... Financing Options - HELP!

    I have posted before about equipment and here I am again. We need to make a decision sooner than later on what to do with our current equipment and my mind is going in a number of different directions. We have a KM 1250 B/W with 15 million impressions on it, low click charge (around .005) but...

    Question about volume on Ricoh 9200

    THANK YOU! This is basically what we've been thinking. Our b/w press has 13million on it (installed in 2012) and still going strong - thankfully paid cash for it so what a bargain. Our small color press has a click charge so high it makes no sense to even run it and our 6 year old 1100 is down...

    Question about volume on Ricoh 9200

    I thought the same but this is the one he's suggesting: Plockmatic PBM-5035S – Fold, Stitch, Face Trim, Square Bind* up to 20 sheets (20lb bond) Creates standard or landscape booklets Max sheet size – 12.6” x 24.4” Built in cover inserter Can be hand fed collated sets while printer Is running...

    Question about volume on Ricoh 9200

    This is really really helpful. We have a limitation as well with a very narrow, long building and its a retail space so we don't have a ton of room. TBH we would have trouble getting a 9200 through our front door. I'm glad to hear you're happy with the 7210. I feel like my judgment is being...

    Question about volume on Ricoh 9200

    Thank you. In our volume were to stay exactly where it is now, we wouldn't be maxing out the 7200 specs, but we are also outsourcing most all of our longer runs because our KMs are constantly going down.... tough decisions.
