St. George Utah Preston Office SolutionsLocal Copiers and Local Economy/Environment

Today, it’s no secret that there are many benefits to buying local. Where you decide to shop can make a huge impact on the local economy and the environment. The same goes for buying or leasing local copiers and printers.

Local business actually generates 70% more local economic activity per square foot than big box stores.


There are just a few choices when buying or leasing copiers and printers.

  1. Direct from manufacturer
  2. Local authorized dealer
  3. Big box office supply stores
  4. Online (eBay etc.)

What is the Cost?

Usually the first question that a business owner has is “how much is it going to cost me?” There is always the idea that buying direct from a manufacturer is cheaper. This is just not the case.

Everyone in the business buys at the same wholesale price from the same sources. So local copiers purchased from local dealers actually come with less overhead which means that the cost savings are passed down to you.

But one thing that we all know is that cost is definitely not everything.

Chances are if you talk to anyone who has been in the business for a long time, they will tell you that local dealers provide you with better service.

When it comes to business, time is money. Preston Office Solutions provides fast, local expert service to St. George, Utah and surrounding areas including Cedar City and Mesquite, Nevada.

People tend to think that factory technicians can service a copier/printer better than anyone else. That is simply not true. Service technicians go through the same training/certification programs no matter who they work for.

Factory technicians are not local. Service calls have to be coordinated through a corporate system. This process adds precious time to a routine service call. Quite simply, local is faster, and that equates to money saved.

At Preston Office Solutions, our service technicians go above and beyond to get to know you, and your network. This will expedite the process if repair or maintenance is needed.

What is managed print services? MPS is a “pay as you go” model. This is great for small, medium, and large businesses who want to manage their spending when it comes to office printing.

Businesses only pay for what they use, and service and toner is included. This is a great way to control costs and manage budgets. It also leaves a smaller footprint on the environment and provides greater security.

Your local Preston Office Solutions service technicians provide all of the onsite service and repair, as well as preventive maintenance.

Greetings Readers!

Welcome to the New Year and our new blog. As your local source for office copier/printers we will be posting helpful tips and quips from our industry. For those of you who are new to the Preston brand we thought we would introduce ourselves with an article written by St. George Health and Wellness Magazine.


How Preston Got Started

Preston Family BusinessWhen young Richard Preston hand-delivered fliers to Saint George residents in 1976 to promote his parent’s new business, R & K Bookstore, he never imaged he would be the owner of an expanding and successful business of his own and the central link in a three-generation chain of local businesses. At that time, Richard’s father, Ken, had already instilled in him – by word and example – the secrets to success in business and in life: have integrity; build quality relationships; be fearless; be determined; keep your word; go above and beyond. Using these values as his guide, Richard opened Preston Office Supply in 1983.

The Local Touch

Today, the Preston sales and service team gladly provides what they call “the local touch”: a free evaluation and analysis of any business’s office printing needs and equipment. Using the results, the Preston team works with business owners to decide what options are best. Through this service, they are often able to save clients money and boost their productivity.

We Find Solutions For Every Type of Business

Many local businesses have experienced Preston’s unique customer care. A local pharmacy had, for years, purchased all of their office printers and copiers from large national chains, often online. While their online purchases appeared to be cheaper it turned out that they were not, additionally they had no one to turn to when the equipment broke or malfunctioned: the pharmacy would simply throw the broken equipment away and purchase another. Preston Office Solutions was able to evaluate the pharmacy’s needs, set them up with a new copier/printer on a cost per page plan (Managed Print Services), and save them thousands of dollars a year while providing local service and equipment that worked.

How Preston’s Is Different

According to Richard, this is the difference between a concierge service experience and a “shopping” experience.

Looking back over the years, Richard recognizes that the Preston name has been solidly associated with the Saint George business community for nearly thirty-five years.
