All the wisdom you require is right before your eyes, so sit back and enjoy 5 minutes of relevant information on how to save your precious time, money and energy when buying a printer.

  • Things to consider when choosing a printer

Multi-function Printers (MFP) or All In One (AIO) printers are packed full of features and bring together all the functionalities of a number of machines into one easy to use device saving lots of time, money and space!

  • Colour and Mono 

Colour printer’s have always been regarded as the more expensive option, but recently technology has improved and reduced the cost, resulting in colour printer prices to sit within the reach of mono printers. Most businesses predominantly print mono, and have the option to print in colour.

  • Quantity/Quality of pages

Generally, if you’re printing up to 1,500 pages per month a laser printer will prove more cost effective, however business inkjets now offer a cost comparable solution and crisper print. Anything less than 1500 pages, then you’re best choosing an inkjet printer.

  • Speed and Location

Near Field Communications (NFC) – the latest smart phones, tablets and some cameras have this technology which allows you to print by simply tapping the devices onto the printer … no need for ‘set-up’ beforehand, again saving time. Google’s cloud print also has new and improved features putting any location issues out, so whether you’re in the same room or on the other side of the world… documents are still transferred to the printer over a web connection (then immediately deleted for security!)

Apple devices use Air print via a Wi-Fi connection meaning you can print quickly, cheaply and wirelessly from all your devices.

HP use ePrinter through cloud technology
