I’m working with an architectural client who has closed down their office for daily work for the duration. People only go in if they have to be there. Everyone has been set up to work from home.
In house just now they have a 3’ ink jet plotter., several HP B&W letter sized lasers, and a couple of Konica Minolta BizHub units that can handle up to 12x18 color prints/scans/copies.
The KM BizHubs are going off lease. They are looking for an interim solution to 11x17 color printing at a quality good enough for fine line drawings plus proposals on “plain” paper but with color photos embedded.
The point of interim is that the volumes are down to the point that a new lease on a KM BizHub or similar just makes no sense. At least not until the office is re-opened for more normal operations. Dealing with a PDF onscreen from home, while at times is a pain,it beats driving into the office to print a page or few.
We are looking at 1 or 3 letter/legal Brother all in ones for B&W letter printing and copying. Plus it will scan in color, do multi-page scans, and costs under $200.
Any suggestions? for the 12x18 or maybe 11x17.
This is a market I’ve not looked at for a long time as it falls in the middle of what my clients normally want.
