Schools have to balance high printing outputs with a balanced budget. At the same time, they can’t skimp on quality. Making high quality prints is crucial for art and many other departments. The amount of printing in a school makes technical problems even more disruptive. Like a big business, schools can’t afford to lose the ability to print for days on end. That’s why they need quick and effective service, along with high quality equipment and competitive pricing.
EBS has supplied print solutions to Schools for over two decades. We supply many schools with hundreds of devices throughout East Anglia with a range of print hardware designed for use in a varied environments, from classrooms to reprographic departments.
We provide a diverse offering of printers from renowned manufacturers, including Konica Minolta, Samsung and RISO. Each one has unique benefits to a school’s print applications and can be blended together to provide the best solution for every requirement. These include key features such as:
