Whether your Sonoma-based business is an established family winery, a cool specialty store, a multi-physician medical practice, a construction company, or an automotive shop, there are many reasons why you need an on-site, state-of-the-art, user-friendly business copier machine.
Business Copy Machines Save Time
While you may not have to run copies of invoices, documents, flyers, or booklets daily, when you do need to run copies and don’t have an in-house copier, you’ll either have to send an employee to the local print shop (or worse — you’ll have to go yourself) or you’ll have to outsource the project to a printing company. Both of those options take (and waste) time. If you send an employee to run the copies, do you want the worker to stay there and wait for the copies? How long will that take? Or, do you want the employee to drive to the local print shop, drop off the projects, and then return to your business only to deal with the traffic again when going back to pick up the completed print jobs? If you decide to outsource your sales booklet or company newsletter, it will take time shopping around for the best printing company that can get your project done when you need it and at a price you want to pay. In addition, you’ll have to make sure that whatever you email over to that printing company is p-e-r-f-e-c-t and 100 percent error-free because once they print it for you – it’s printed!
No outsourced printing company is going to “understand” that you meant to write the word “sales” and not “slaws” in the heading. They’ll happily rerun the project for you – for an additional fee. You won’t have any of those challenges when you have your own business copy machines right in-house. You’ll simply have an employee run some copies (a short walk over to the copier) and you can run a few copies of your bigger project and then proofread it before you take the time to run the 100 copies of it!
Business Copy Machines Inspire Creativity
Having a 21st century, user-friendly copy machine that prints in color, staples, folds, and collates in your shop will inspire you to design and produce countless marketing and promotional pieces. From creating newsletters for your employees and/or for your customers, to printing flyers and updating the day’s specials, you have the freedom to create whatever you want every day of the week! If you had to drive to your local print shop or outsource your latest idea to an online printing company, you wouldn’t be inspired to write that business plan, create that sales brag book, post a new daily menu, or produce that monthly flyer. And who would? The more print projects you can experiment with and produce in-house, the more you can help to promote your products, services, and employees!
Business Copy Machines Increase Productivity
From creating “Top Employee of the Month” flyers or feature pieces in a new company newsletter, to designing tri-fold brochures and full-color proposals for your potential customers, having an in-house business copier gives you the ability to increase sales. Walk-in customers can read the details of a new special you are offering for the season while waiting for their meal, vehicle, or appointment at your place. Employees can look forward to seeing their name, photo, and sales records in the latest employee newsletter. Companies without an in-house printer have to rely on taking the time to verbally explain seasonal specials or new services to their walk-in clients and sending emails to employees that may or not be opened and read.
