Technology has given business the ability to exercise greater control over many of the processes needed to succeed in today’s economy. The idea of bringing wide format printing back in-house can seem daunting for many companies used to outsourcing this function. The belief is that it’s more cost effective to outsource.

Today, new affordable wide format printers mean that many businesses could actually reap significant benefits by bringing wide format printing back in-house. In fact, a recent survey by Canon Solutions America found that it’s not unusual to save as much as 46% on your wide format printing costs when printing in-house over outsourcing to a third party.

Let’s explore some of the many benefits of in-house wide format printing:

1. Cost Savings – It’s a common misconception that bringing wide format print in house is cost prohibitive. In fact, if your company does a lot of wide format jobs, bringing the process in-house can offer significant savings over time.


2. Save Time – You’ll save time by not leaving the office or waiting for outside sources to print your job. Printing in house means that your job is ready when you need it, not waiting for your printer to schedule it.


3. It’s Affordable – Today’s technology is more affordable than ever before. If you do a large quantity of wide format printing, you can realize significant cost savings.


4. It’s Easy – Today’s wide format printers are extremely user friendly. You won’t spend a ton of time learning a complicated system. With minimal training, you can master wide format and easily complete complex projects.


It’s important to make sure you do your due diligence when choosing your equipment. Make sure any printer you choose is energy efficient to keep operating costs low, can produce high-quality output, is easy to use, provides sufficient throughput to meet your company’s needs, and is future ready with the ability to upgrade operating software.
