Commercial Print Services Procurement Intelligence

In this commercial print services procurement intelligence report, we have estimated the pricing of the key cost components. Printing equipment, toner & supplies, and paper form the largest cost component of the commercial printing businesses. Together, they account for more than 70-75% of the total cost. The cost also depends on the type of printing method deployed and the scale of printing operations. 

For instance, consider an organization prints 4,000 pages each month, 30% of which are in color, and run the printer for 2 years. Then, they will print 96,000 pages. On an average, a printer yields 7,000 black prints per cartridge and 5,000 color prints per cartridge. Thus, the organization will need 14 black and 18 color cartridges during a printer’s lifetime. Hence the cost of black and color cartridges will be around USD 630 and USD 1,080 respectively. Generally, a case of 8 reams of paper containing 4,000 sheets cost USD 50. So, the total amount spent on papers would be around USD 1,200. As a result, the monthly print costs bared by the organization would amount to USD 143.75.
