Swap out warranty
Swap out warranty

Why not add the “swap out” warranty cover for 3 years support on your printer. If you have an issue and it needs to come back to the manufacturer, they will advance send a replacement machine while yours goes back for repair. This will minimise downtime and keep you printing!
