1. The Color Printing Forum Marketplace Forums can be useful for members who know one another well from forum discussions and offline communications and wish to post presses, equipment, or parts they either want or have for sale or trade. However, caution and good judgement should always be used. Especially when considering any business with anyone not already well known to you and trusted, due diligence must be used to confirm details and identity and be sure the transaction is safe before any money or property changes hands. Always use good judgement and perform due dilligence and follow these guidelines.

    hello all I am about to start a printing press but I am at lost on what I need and wanted to get advice. I know buying a printer is one thing but completing printing contracts is another thing with keep maintained costs in mind. I found a local shop that seems to have some legit deals but I need help. So to be completely honest with the contracts that I have right now range from 500 to 6000 in total around 86000 prints in a span of 5 months. My budget is around 30k ish for this start-up but dont speicfally know would best heres what I have in mind

    Xerox Versant 80 (good production like but I dont know what maintained costs looks like)

    or just buy like 4 of these Konica Minolta Bizhub Pro C6501 (the idea being if one of them breaks down there 3 more)

    honestly do any of you have recommendations ?
