PLOTTERS, PLOTTERS, PLOTTERS!

PLOTTERS, Plotters, and more Plotters

So here I am, and our theme for the new year seems to be Plotters, HP Designjet Plotters. Plotters, Plotters, and more Plotters, it seems like we are doing all things plotters this season.

I haven’t posted in a very long time, and that is for various reasons. The #1 reason being I had a major computer malfunction and lost everything for the past 6 years, so it took a time to get back up and running. So we will start the New Year with Plotters. The 2nd being I’ve started a new business and that is taking up a lot of my time. Google “The Home Picture Store Canada” and see my work in progress there. https://www.thehomepicturestore.ca/

 

There are plotter belts, carriage assemblies, printheads, service station, formatter boards/hard drives, and new plotters, Epson, HP, and Canons. We can also add in vinyl cutters as they are often considered plotters too.

Since our workspace is a mere 425 square feet and we have currently 2 HP 42″ plotters, and 2 HP 24″ plotters and waiting on a vinyl cutter to arrive we are a bit overwhelmed, to say the least. Honestly, I have got to say Anounce Printer Works is loving the work and challenge.

If you are interested in purchasing a new plotter, we love the HP DesignJet series so visit our Amazon Store and check out what is available.

Happy New Year to all things Plotters, whether it is an HP Designjet or an Epson or a Canon. We even service Roland Plotters!!

I have fielded calls more regarding HP Design Jet Plotters than I ever have in the past 20 years. Since this, I thought I’d just write a bit about them, considering I have customers on a wait list for them.

The HP Design Jet Plotters seem to be the industry standard, although both Canon and Epson have excellent plotters available also.

The issue we seem to see regarding plotters is the lack of servicing.  If a plotter is serviced and maintained  over the course of its life it will last longer. So I guess what I am trying to say is preventative maintenance does work. Cleaning a plotter on a yearly basis will give more life to the belt and other moving parts. We offer this service and for a fee of approximately $140.00 (this includes taxes) your plotter can be inspected/serviced and cleaned.  Most clients tend to wait until they have an error code on the plotter and it quits in the middle of a job to call and have it repaired. For Tips and Tricks to keep your plotter running smoothly call one of our technicians at 250-474-1901.

We are located in the beautiful city of Victoria and offer plotter repair service for all of Vancouver Island.

  • When should a Plotter be serviced?

Anounce Printer works recommends that  your potter is serviced at least once a year.  Call and book your plotter cleaning at 250-474-1901.

Printer & Plotter Repair in Victoria BC

Printer & Plotter Repair in Victoria BC

Printer Repair & Plotter Repair in Victoria BC, is there really such a market anymore? Today I heard that my main printer parts supplier is closing their distribution centre on the west coast of Canada. I am saddened by the fact that I now have to talk to someone in a different time zone, and that the cost of my parts has just increased because of the added cost to ship printer parts across the country.

Repair Printers?

So here is my thought or question of the day. Does anyone repair their printers? If printers are being repaired why is my west coast distribution centre closing? Oh, this isn’t the first of my suppliers to pull out of the west coast. We here on the west coast are the most environmentally friendly in Canada, so why am I going to Ontario or Quebec for my parts? Oh, that being said that begs another question, are we really the most environmentally friendly, or do we just talk about being environmentally conscious?

The thing is, printers are inexpensive to purchase. All printers will not work on all operating systems. If the printer is broken, you replace, and if you update your computer, you replace your printer. So yes we are really an environmentally conscious province. Are we really trying to ‘save the planet’? Or are we just intended to “recycle” our electronics because you know the saying ‘out of sight, out of mind’?  I know everyone recycles electronics…but that bodes the question, where do the recyclers really take the electronics (another topic, another day)

What To Do

At the end of the day, it is back to PRINTER REPAIRS. Is it worth the cost and that is up to you the consumer and to me the technician?

I had someone call me for a part for an HP DesignJet, and yes I can purchase the part but the ETA is anywhere from 10 days to 60 days. If you have a production plotter like this you cannot have downtime of 60 days, as work just doesn’t work that way. So it is difficult to get parts, and difficult to have a client willing to wait up to 60 days for parts, so they go purchase new.

So as my printer parts suppliers all close on the west coast, I can still go to Ontario, Quebec, and China to purchase supplies, and pay to have an item shipped across the country or the globe, so yes Anounce still tries to repairs printers in Victoria BC.
