I would suggest finding a local printing firm that care, as we have a great deal.
I have found that not many of our members require a printer at all. In fact, the facility is used on average by 5 members per month out of the 35 we have here. We have a reconditioned printer fit for a school, that was given to us for free by our local printing company. We pay them x amount per print (they can record this remotely), and we, of course, charge members for the luxury. This amount per print includes all of the toner, and when it is running low they send out the next toner.
Their aim is to get your future printing business as you grow your space, and they are putting an asset to use that has no value to them (the reconditioned printer). We have an old laptop that runs ezeep that links to our Nexudus account and auto bills everyone ontop of their monthly price plans.
Hope our case study helps.

I purchased a Brother MFC printer for my members about half a year ago but we have now reached a membership level where the Brother printer isn’t cutting it. I am looking to purchase a larger industrial grade printer and have reached out to a few printer salespeople.
Does anyone have any good experience with this and can recommend me a large workgroup printer that is reliable and robust in features?
On this note - does anyone reccomend any software for member printing management? I have looked at PrintWithMe and Ezeep and am not sure what solution I am going to end up using.
