  • 6. Should i get a black and white or colour machine?

    We believe that if a store hasn't had a copier before the best option is to go with a black and white machine for a smaller outlay on the Pay As You Go Scheme. If the demand for colour becomes apparent then we can change machines at any time to meet this demand.

  • 9. I'm not sure how well a photocopier will do in my store, is it worth it?

    Our Pay As You Go offering is built around giving stores the ability to test how successful a photocopier may or may not be. There is no contract and any unsold copies can be refunded at any time with no cancellation charge or cost. In reality customers of newsagents, Post Offices and off licences see a photocopier as a standard offering. Giving your customers the option drives general footfall and gives you a competitive advantage in your local area and the ability to have more repeat customers providing regular income.

    We are able to provide machines with completely different sizes and capabilities. Our smallest machines are less than half a metre squared and we work with our clients to find a machine that best suits the size and style of the store. We are yet to find a store where a machine cannot fit.
