Most customers are familiar with Epson via our line of robust POS printers. Our solutions in the Cruise industry have expanded into Business Ink Jet and Projector Solutions on several global fleets. From itineraries and menus to more complex print jobs like ship schematics, cruise ships print a lot. And while the industry has long been reliant upon laser printers and copiers, the switch to inkjet — and to Epson especially — makes smart business sense for three key reasons: • Whereas laser toner is considered hazardous waste — and must be treated as such by cruise ships whenever they port — Epson’s replaceable ink packs and cartridges are easily recycled. • Compared to laser printers and copiers, Epson inkjet printers offer incredible energy savings — in some cases up to 50 to 80 percent less power vs. laser1 — critical for vessels that must generate their own power. • In contrast to laser printers and copiers, Epson inkjet printers have fewer parts to replace, are easy to maintain, and offer low intervention, a major consideration when ships can be at sea for days, if not weeks, at a time.
