Enabling a range of print sizes and media types

Increase the range of projects your business can manage

Challenge

Many printing projects require much more than your typical 8.5 x 11-inch sheet of paper. Large photos, graphic projects, maps, architectural plans and more require much larger printing equipment. However, outsourcing these large projects can be costly, and you may not receive a finished product with the quality you desire.

Solution

Large format printers are professional pieces of printing equipment that can handle large, time-intensive projects. These devices can print hundreds of square feet in less than an hour; they use specialist ink to create a crisp image and can print on a variety of media types including adhesives, fabric, film, banners and more.

Outsourcing vs Own Print Room Section

Outsourcing vs Own Print Room

Printing in-house is easier than you think

Printing in-house increases your flexibility and also saves costs

Challenge:

Outsourcing your print could be more expensive and time consuming than you think and even at relatively low levels of printing businesses are often surprised at the cost savings they could make printing in-house.

Outsourcing your printing often leads to an increased level of wastage as you have to estimate the required level of stock required, often printing more than necessary.

Outsourcing offers less flexibility, longer timescales and doesn’t enable you to create dynamic, personalised marketing campaigns. 

Solution:

We can help you analyse your true print costs to see whether you would benefit from creating your own professional print room. Your own professional print room will provide organisations with the ability to produce high quality and high print volume output to your own unique specifications.

The ability to print your own materials will help improve your marketing campaigns, enabling high higher quality printed materials, with consistent brand quality and allowing short-runs with dynamic personalised materials.

Your print room can usually be managed by existing team members and we offer training, specialist equipment, account management, project management and set-up assistance to get your print room up and running quickly.

"We chose EBC Group to help create our own print room. What we’ve been able to consolidate into a relatively small space has been so beneficial. EBC Group are able to advise us on new technology, and different ways we can improve our print."

Energy Consumption Section

Energy Consumption

Lower your energy consumption and costs

Use less power, reducing your consumption, carbon footprint and costs

Challenge

As the office environment rapidly evolves, so does the equipment needed to keep up with working demands. With printers often in continuous use, older models fail to meet with the new ‘green’ standards. Aside from the frequent maintenance required, the devices often lack any energy saving functionality, draining business of power and resources.

Solution

In light of these issues, devices that are equipped and designed to save energy, whilst still maximising on efficiency and productivity. Our print devices actively save power where possible, with features such as stand by modes, helping comply with energy standards and reducing your business' carbon footprint.
