Canon imagePROGRAF 8100

RGBuk, the Wokingham based reseller has announced today the launch of a brand new trade-in programme to run until 23rd Dec 09.  The promotion offers customers the chance to upgrade to a new Canon 12 colour 44” Image PROGRAF iPF8100.  The printer is priced at £3495 for customers wishing to trade an existing HP, Epson or any other large format inkjet printer,  24” or bigger.

Wokingham based RGBuk, has launched a unique trade-in offer for customers interested in upgrading their existing large format printer to a cost effective Canon iPF8100.  The promotion provides customers with an excellent opportunity to upgrade an old printer for £500 off the price of the already heavily discounted Canon iPF8100.  The printer was promoted on Canon’s “Star Buy” scheme in October this year. The iPF8100 originally priced at £5495 including a stand, was discounted along with the iPF8000s to attract customers to move to the 44” printers.  The RGBuk trade-in offer allows customers an additional £2000 saving per printer.  The original price is expected to be re-instated once the ‘Star Buy’ promotions finishes this December.

Ben Randall, MD, RGBuk; said “The trade-in programme comes at a time when print costs have been higher in the past 6 months than ever before.  Epson has suffered with increased ink cost, as have HP subjected to the variable Euro exchange rate. So whilst in house printing is on the increase the cost of the average print job, has in many cases, also increased.  The Canon 12 colour print technology has an overall cost advantage compared to the competitors and has been independently proven by BLI to use 31% less ink than Epson.”

The RGBuk offer is expected to run until 23rd  December 09, or whilst stocks last.
