What to Consider in a Large Format Printer Acquisition

Blue Print Imaging Technologies is an industry leader in placing and maintaining wide format printing systems.  Our expertise goes beyond the sale.  We offer high quality service, supplies, and training to compliment your in-house printing environment.


When considering a wide format printing system acquisition, there are five major points that go into selecting the right system for your work flow.

  • Printer Type:  Printing systems are available in printer engine only, or as multifunctions systems.
  • Monochrome or Color: Color enabled printers let you print color and monochrome all in one.  Or, consider a monochrome device if you do not have a need for color output.
  • Costs: Printing in-house is less expensive than you may think.  It can provide excellent cost reduction opportunities with the right mix of print volumes and applications.
  • Speed and Performance: Look beyond a printer's rated speed and consider other productivity enhancing features.
  • Image Quality: All dpi ratings are not always the same, so look closely at your application requirements and test the printer's output.  Many of our systems are appropriate for CAD output and Graphics output.
