Peace of Mind: Extend Your Printer Warranty at LexJet

Where to get an extended warranty for wide format inkjet printersIf the warranty on your large format inkjet printer is about to expire, or if you don’t have one currently, you can pick up the peace of mind that comes with one at LexJet. LexJet offers warranties for most Canon, Epson and HP wide format printers, and you can get one even if you didn’t buy the printer from LexJet.

Warranties are insurance against any type of mechanical calamity that might happen with the printer. While it’s hoped you won’t need it, if something does happen, out of warranty fixes, however minor, will almost always add up to more than minimum warranty extension price.

Plus, there’s the scheduling and inevitable waiting for repairs on out-of-warranty printers that always seem to happen at the worst possible time.

Warranties range in price from the low $100s up to around $3,000, depending on the make, model and size of the printer and the length of the warranty. For Canon, Epson and HP printers, the initial factory warranty can be extended at any point within one year from the date of purchase, but can be extended at any point.

If you have any questions, contact a LexJet account specialist at 800-453-9538. Someone is always available between the hours of 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Eastern Time, Monday through Friday. You’ll reach a human being quickly who will do everything they can to help, whether it’s finding the right warranty or troubleshooting a project.

Take advantage of this special pricing on all widths and roll lengths of Extreme AquaVinyl while supplies last. The 36″ x 40′ roll, for instance, was $181, and is now only $139.

Plus, LexJet Extreme AquaVinyl comes with a one-year warranty against fading, peeling, cracking, bleeding and running when using pigmented (UV) inks. The scratch resistant coating eliminates the need to laminate and is waterproof.

Extreme AquaVinyl can be used for a variety of flat surface applications, such as short-term outdoor signage, long-term indoor graphics, window graphics, special event graphics, and other flat panel advertising.

Jon Otteson, who printed the sign project show here on the vinyl, said, “I’ve printed a lot of fine art projects, but this was our first signage project so it was a little nerve-wracking. Fortunately, it worked out very well and we learned a lot along the way. The printer and the material were both perfect, and compared to what we had before the signage is 50 times nicer.”

Tips to Increase Uptime on Your Printer

To increase uptime on your printer it can be helpful to minimize service issues. Here are some important steps you should take that will save you time, hassles, and money down the road:

  1. Have the warranty hotline number and the printer’s serial number accessible: Keep these numbers where they can be easily found.  Write down all details, including the name of the person who helped you.  Document, document, document.
  2. Do I have a manufacturer’s warranty or is my existing warranty through a third party? Surprisingly, you’re likely to get on-site service more quickly through a third party.
  3. How old is my printer, and is it still under warranty? The age of your printer will influence your decision to fix or replace.  If you’ve let your warranty lapse, you may want to spend a little extra on a new piece of technology instead of paying for parts and labor from a service technician.
  4. Are we able to trade in our printer or get a free one somehow? During the course of the year printer manufacturers run regular promotions that give you cash back when you trade in your old printer for a newer model. LexJet is an excellent one-stop source for this information.

These are great alternatives that can help subsidize the cost, keep cash flows in line, and are viable options should your printer suddenly stop working.
