hello mga Sirs!

I'M Rhene. employed po ako sa isang school na less than 500 students ang population. gusto ko po sanang magstart nang printing business. kahit souvenir programs at school paper lang muna ang titirahin ko. ask sana ako kung anong printer ang pwede nyo i-advise sa akin at nasa anong range po ang price noon.

thanks and more power.

Hi Rhene and welcome to the forum.

Since you are new in the printing business, I suggest that you go for digital printing. Digital printing is a lot easier to operate than offset printing. It is also more suitable for short quantity jobs of a few hundreds. You should, however, develop your skills in design and layout, which is the front end of the printing process.

For your equipment requirements, you can contact Copylandia, which has a branch in Davao. You can visit their website for details. They have a wide range of digital presses to cover different requirements from simple 1-color printing to multi-color printing. From the digital process, you can later expand to the more complicated offset process as your market expands.

You can also probably contact PIADI (Printing Industry Association of Davao, Inc) for assistance.

Regards.

Mag kaiba ang digital printer ( multi function ) sa digital press. magkaiba ang toner nila. to test, magpalaminate ka sa plastic at UV. dyan mo malalaman kung press yan or printer lang. Wax base lang kasi ang office equipement at hindi stable or consisten ang office equipment.
Try to inquire Canon Imagepress, Ubix Konica Minolta, Fuji xerox 1450 GA.
Color support ang MAIN concern, kasi dapat consistent. maganda rin na kumuha ka ng wedge, either G7 or Ugra wedge para malaman mo kung talagang maganda talaga.

You can use RISO or DUPLO machines for printing text and simple 1-color graphics on uncoated paper like the inside pages of books; and use color printers like Konica Minolta or Develop Ineo for the colored covers.

There are many brands and models of color printers available. The expensive ones are the ones referred to as color presses. These are high end machines with software control for consistent and accurate color reproduction. As billy said, you should avoid the multi function printers, which are only for office use.

Since you are just starting your business, you will have to balance the cost of your investment with the capability of your production process.
