Why do print shops need insurance?

Your customers expect high-quality results with a quick turnaround. Printers' insurance protects against financial losses when a mistake leads to lawsuit, or when a broken printer puts your business on hold. It gives you peace of mind, and fulfills the requirements of leases, loans, and contracts.
