What is the right type of printer for my business?

brother printerThere are many different types of printer a business can choose. From compact A3 printers to small, inexpensive inkjet printers there are plenty of options available. The reason why this is the case is because they have all been designed to suit different needs. However, while this is a good thing because there are lots of items on offer, finding the right one can be tricky. Here, we will explore more what type of printer you should buy depending on your business.

The normal home business

If you run a small company from home, then a printer is essential, but as you may guess, you do not need to spend a fortune. A home printer is often required to carry out just about every task well without needing to be particularly great. A small home business will benefit from a color inkjet printer with an inbuilt scanner. You can buy a good inkjet printer from a reputable retailer for as little as £60.

A budding photographer

A photographer is only as good as the equipment they own. Even the best photographer in the world can be made to look average if they have the wrong camera and printer. At the same time, especially for amateur photographers, budget is often a concern. If you are a budding photographer who also wants an ‘everyday’ printer, consider an all-in-one printer. However, if you are a professional, take a look at a high quality A3 inkjet printer because this will offer the best results.

A larger business

If there are several computers that all need to link up to the same printer, you need to make sure you put in more research. In any case, for a larger business the printer needs to be quick, have a decent amount of memory and get a good job done without using too much ink. The printer will need to be wireless because you will not be able to physically hardwire several computers into one printer. In this case, a color laser printer is a cost-effective solution for a larger business. Not only are laser printers quick, but they are able to handle multiple instructions.

It is important that you research the right type of printer before buying one for a number of reasons. Therefore, make sure you take the above guide into account when looking for your next printer regardless of what business you run.

  1. I really need a printer! I’ve been so lazy with getting one.

  2. We run our own business from home and we have a nice little printer that’s been a lifesaver many times. It also works as a scanner, which is a great feature to have as we like to have as much as we can stored electornically.
