Today I am going to switch gears a bit as I wanted to pass on what I use in-house to create fact sheets, postcards and other marketing materials for my agents. I am 500,000 prints into my new Konica Minolta c6500 printer that I acquired Aril 2007, this replaced the Konica Minolta cf5001. I use the paper settings between postcard size to 11x17 up to 100lbs cover stock; I can scan at 600 dpi and it is fast. I have included the website so as to not make this a spec sheet for the printer. http://www.biz.konicaminolta.com/production/c6500/spec.html.
I wanted to give these copiers props, before this one I constantly needed repair almost every Friday, truly if not more often, calibrations and paper jams when it got humid. Now in the 500,000s, I have had nothing but normal maintenance; color stays truer and with this one came a pro calibrator, so I could do it myself. It has been worth the changeover especially for the speed upgrade; I print upward of 3000 cards monthly for some agents and have 60 agents that need fact sheets every weekend, this machine gets the job done.
In a future blog I will get into why I go digital, with Digital vs going Off-set.
