Epson UK launches ReadyPrint

Epson UK has launched ReadyPrint, its first subscription printing service for its consumer cartridge printer models.

ReadyPrint claims that it will give customers savings of up to 70 percent on print costs with the added convenience of new ink delivered straight to their door. Epson’s cartridge-free EcoTank printers will be also soon be added into the ReadyPrint service.

The outfit is hoping that its service will find a place for those locked in during the Coronavirus and needing printers for home use.

To help ease costs during this challenging time, Epson is offering its monthly subscription service, ReadyPrint Flex, for free for an initial three-month launch period until 31 July 2020.

ReadyPrint Flex is available for Epson WorkForce and Expression Home printers.  There are three price plans to help with a variety of printing needs starting from less than £2 a month.

With ReadyPrint Flex, customers choose a set number of printed pages per month £1.29 for 30 pages, £1.99 for 50 pages or £3.29 for 100 pages and unused pages can be rolled over for two months.

Printers on ReadyPrint Flex monitor when ink begins to run low and replacement supplies are sent directly to the customer’s chosen address automatically, so they never have to worry about running out of ink.

Nico Michaelides, head of consumer sales at Epson UK, said: “The cost of ink and inconvenience of running out just when you need it most should never be an issue for our customers, but even more so during these uncertain times. With ReadyPrint, we want to be closer to our customers, help them save money and give them the peace of mind of having ink delivered straight to their home.”

Later in the year, the ReadyPrint service will be rolled out to a selection of online e-tailers and retailers.
