I can relate completely to your situation. I was at a point where I outgrew my position. Unfortunately for me, I was let go at the end of September. Even my boss admitted that I outgrew the position....
What to use for full color, 11x17, on 60lb-80lb paper?
I'm new to the printing world, and I am looking for something very project specific here...
I need to print:
Full color...but depth doesn't matter much. Realistic photo quality is not that important... 600dpi or a litttle less would be fine I think.
11x17 on 60lb-80lb paper. If it weren't for this all important requirement, I would probably just go with one of those new Xerox solid-ink phasers
High Volume / fast? a high monthly duty cycle would be nice. I'm going to need to print about 50,000 of these 11x17 pages per month - 100k if you count that I need to print both sides. Decent cPPM for 11x17 would be nice.
low cost per page.. the toner or ink or whatever should be very reasonable & parts should be readily available.
low budget?... I'm trying to stay well under $5k for the printer if possible.
I would like to go with some kind of digitial option if possible....
