The type of printing solution a funeral home should choose will depend on the number of calls the funeral home typically manages in a month’s time. If the funeral home handles more than one hundred calls a month, it probably makes sense to go towards the copier solution. If the home takes less than one hundred calls, a printer solution is best. Either solution will have a duplex unit that will allow the funeral home to print both sides automatically. The copier has a higher monthly fixed cost, therefore, the funeral home would need to be doing some volume to make up for the higher fixed cost; however, since the cost per page is cheaper, it can pay for itself quickly.
