What are the business benefits of A3 printers?

When it comes to technology these days, it seems like the smaller your gadget is, the better. But when it comes to business printing, at Printerland we believe that bigger is better.

But why should you switch from your trusty A4 printer to a new larger model? In this blog post, we’re going outline some of the business benefits of upgrading your machine to an A3 printer, whether that’s a laser printer or an inkjet printer.

The size capabilities

One of the more obvious benefits of purchasing an A3 printer is the freedom it brings to businesses in terms of size. If you’re looking to print out a client 12-month plan, rather than printing on two A4 pages and sticking them together, you’re able to print the entire plan and view it in a neat and professional way.

A3 printers can also support businesses with marketing and communications. You’re able to print out large posters or banners, allowing you to make your designs as eye catching as possible, while still getting the highest quality of print. Models such as our OKI C9655n offer an ‘auto media’ detection feature, allowing you to print a wide range of media materials without manually re-setting the print area when changing the type of print job.

Increasing productivity and decreasing spending

Investing in an A3 printer will also allow your business to cut down on external costs by bringing marketing activities in house. Rather than outsourcing the marketing resources you need to print to another company, waiting until your prints are ready and then risking receiving a low quality job, you can print your promotional materials yourself and avoid compromising on quality.

Some A3 models, like our Lexmark c925de model, offer users the chance to review their print job before clicking ‘print’. The colour touch screen, which measures almost 5 inches, gives you the option to preview your print job, giving you the time to adjust your settings. This is great news for businesses looking to increase their productivity and decrease office down-time.

Improved power

As A3 printers are bigger than the standard A4 size, they tend to have bigger ‘engines’ and therefore more horsepower than regular machines. This means you can speed through your printing jobs in half the time, again improving your office productivity.

They can also handle a bigger workload than A4 printers, and because A3 printers use bigger toner cartridges with a greater capacity, you don’t have to change the toner quite so often.
Finally, A3 printer models, such as our Xerox Phaser 7100DN, also support A4 printing. This means that you can print the same amount of A4 sized documents as before in a fraction of the time.

So those are just some of the many benefits of upgrading from a normal A4 machine to an A3 printer.
