For users looking to print beyond the limits of A3, an SRA3 printer can deliver outstanding results.
Often overlooked, an SRA3 printer opens a world of new possibilities for your printing capabilities.
What is SRA3?
SRA stands for ‘supplementary raw format A’ and is a range of paper sizes which are slightly larger than their A series equivalents.
Whereas a sheet of A3 paper measures 420mm x 297mm, an SRA3 sheet is 450mm x 320mm.
Although it may not sound like much of a size difference, the added real estate that SRA3 provides, offers a unique feature that conventional A3 printers lack.
Due to the constraints of the laser printing process, when printing full-sized A3 documents, traditional A3 laser printers require a blank border around the page.
This is due to a critical component of laser printing technology known as the fuser requiring a margin at the edge of print outs when operating.
This means that traditional A3 laser printers cannot achieve full edge-to-edge A3 printing also known as “full-bleed” printing.
This 100% coverage is essential for producing commercial grade, A3 printed materials and makes an SRA3 laser printer an invaluable addition to any professional work environment.
An SRA3 printer creates a full coverage A3 print with a trimmable border which can be easily removed with a guillotine.
Widely used in the world of commercial printing, SRA3 printers are a used for a variety of professional grade marketing and promotional materials.
From A5 flyers to A3 posters, SRA3 printers are designed to produce eye-catching prints for use in a range of commercial settings.
How Can SRA3 Printing Benefit You?
An SRA3 printer can aid your workplace in several ways, here are just some of the potential benefits of owning and SRA3 printer.
Reduce your Printing Costs with an SRA3 Printer
Owning an SRA3 printer can allow users to significantly reduce their printing costs. Whereas professional grade promotional printing was previously the domain of wide format printers, an SRA3 laser printer allows users to achieve the same high-quality results at drastically lower prices.
With significantly lower initial hardware costs than wide format counterparts, SRA3 laser printers can help users reduce their printing costs without compromising on performance.
Overall running costs can be further reduced with the use of optional high-capacity toner cartridges. Delivering considerably higher page yields, high-capacity toners enable users to print for longer between refills whilst lowering total cost-per-page prices.
Produce Professional Quality Prints In-House
A major benefit of owning an SRA3 laser printer is the added autonomy they offer. Instead of farming out print jobs to expensive third parties, users can produce professional quality marketing materials in-house with complete control over the creative and production processes.
What Size Prints Can You Print On SRA3 Paper?
The benefits of owning an SRA3 printer are not only confined to producing full coverage A3 print jobs. SRA3 printers can also produce a wide range of printed materials on a range of media types.
For instance, SRA3 printers can also produce SRA4 and SRA5 sized prints with the same edge-to-edge print results of SRA3 sizes.
These alternative SRA capabilities mean users can produce a range of printed materials which conform to industry standards and can be trimmed using a guillotine to produce materials with 100% coverage.
SRA3 printers are also capable of producing A3, A4 and 4 x A5 prints on a single sheet which can be easily trimmed for producing flyers. In addition, SRA3 printers are also capable of printing a range of custom sizes.
