Prospective owners are strongly urged to have samples produced or provided by any of the manufacturers. Interested parties should review actual output on their products and understand the time and steps it takes to produce a sample to their liking. Don’t simply rely on features or statistics of a specific model to tell the entire story of how actual production will go. 

While output quality, print time, and process steps vary by manufacturer, a list of similar capabilities span many of the more popular models. Again, get samples! And don’t be afraid to ask questions. Someone once said that, “Educated customers are the greatest customers.”
