Warm up time vs Print Speed

Not every copier is the right fit for every business. A large law firm does not have the same needs as a small, family business. It’s not always obvious what will best fit your business. One thing many people are concerned about is the print speed of their new machine. While print speed can be critical in making your business run smoothly and quickly, it is not always the most important thing to consider. That’s why we made this little guide to helping you understand warm up time vs print speed.

Print Speed is just what it sounds like—the speed that copier can put out prints. This is more commonly regarded as the only factor to look at when thinking about efficiency. Print speeds can vary greatly depending on the complexity of the copier. Obviously print speed is extremely important, especially when your business does a high output of copies.

Warm up time is the time it takes for your copier to prepare itself for the job. This is the thing many people don’t think about when buying a copier. They think that if print speed is faster, then the job will be done sooner anyway. However, this is not always the case. Warm up time can greatly affect the efficiency of your business.

Warm up time is more important for businesses that do print jobs throughout the day. If your printer runs non-stop for the entire day, then warm-up time will go backseat to the print speed. But if your business does a few print jobs throughout the day, then you can end up spending a lot of wasted time waiting for the copier to be ready.
