ZBE Establishes $1 Million for a “Cash for Clunkers” Printer Trade-In Program


Carpinteria, USA – ZBE Inc. announces that it has established a $1 million “Cash for Clunkers” Printer Trade-in program. This will allow imaging labs to trade in their professional photo printers and obtain funds toward the purchase of a brand-new Chromira 5x ProLab printer.  High trade-in values are available for “old inefficient clunker photo printers” from Noritsu, Durst, Oce Lightjet, Fuji, Poli, Kodak, or Agfa.

“This is our version of the economic stimulus program,” said Zac Bogart, President of ZBE Inc.  “Many labs are struggling with their old inefficient printers.  They are paying hefty service agreement fees to keep them running. These printers are guzzling time, energy, and labor.  We want labs to know that there are other options. We can help them obtain a great deal on a ProLab through our “Cash for Clunkers” Printer Trade-in program. This will drastically reduce their overall operating, maintenance and energy costs and provide them with efficiencies to grow their business. Starting on Day 1, the ProLab provides positive dividends in savings and workflow effectiveness.”
