Hey all,

A friend pointed out today that Xerox has a free color printer give away program.

It is totally legit. He has done it for two years and loves it.

I am looking into it. I am not sure my volume of printing would justify it now, but I need to think about it carefully.

Here is the basic deal. Xerox will give your small business (or organization) a free color laser printer (not the low end one either) if you commit to:

1. Printing a certain volume of pages each month

2. Buying your ink refills from them.

Just from my quick review of the program it looks good.

For any printer you have to buy ink, which is usually the most expensive part in the long run. No ink is cheap, at least that I have found. So, why not take the free printer and buy ink from Xerox?

Here is what I am thinking, and let me know if I am off...

The program requires a committment to print so many pages a month. From this, of course, you have to buy ink. Even if you do not use all the ink each month, would it be reasonable to store it for later use?

After three years Xerox gives your organization the printer. So, the extra ink, if any, could be used then.

I know the ink usage cannot be too low or you will end up with two-year-old ink in your closet. However, if the volume is just below the threshold to use all the ink in a month, would it work to put it back for a few months--always replacing the cartridges with the oldest set?

Also, I am thinking about adding a service/product that would require additional printing...in color of course...so it may be a win-win. Get a free color laser printer and increase revenue!

Anyway, just thought I'd share this with everyone.
