Printers and publishers use high tech equipment, caustic chemicals, and large machinery like printing presses, packaging equipment, and forklifts that can expose your business to specific and unique risks.

When you own a printing or copying business, you depend on your equipment and your customers. You need both to run a profitable shop, but what happens if something goes wrong? A damaged machine can prevent you from earning revenue. If a customer falls at your shop, you may have to pay for their medical expenses.

If you don’t want those unexpected accidents to hurt your bottom line, it’s smart to invest in printers insurance. Let’s see how print shop insurance can address your most common risks.

General Liability Insurance

General Liability Insurance covers your print shop when a third party (i.e., non-employee) sues you over:

  • Bodily injuries that happened at your shop.
  • Property damage you caused.
  • Libel, slander, or copyright infringement.

For example, let’s say it’s a rainy day and you’ve already mopped up your storefront once. But after a series of customers come in, the floor starts to get slippery. Before you have time to notice, a new customer walks in, slips, and breaks their arm.
