Office Life: Which Printer is Right for You?

From the Printware Blog on Monday 24th August 2015 in Consumer Advice, Resources

Though an office can be a hectic environment, the proper set-up can help to eliminate the little stresses of daily office life. Between all the hustle and bustle of employees rushing to the Oki colour laser printer (click for more) and the high demand for the meeting room, rests an opportunity for success.

In order to streamline your business operations and make office life all the more efficient, you need to start at the roots i.e. creating the optimal office layout. Ideally, you will want to foster productivity with your final design, so consider all aspects, including technology.

Shop Floor

One piece of must-have office technology that has played an integral role throughout the years is, of course, the printer. However, with so many different models on the market, it can be difficult to whittle down the list and make the right choice. So, what do you do? Well, you need to consider all of the different types available.

So in today’s article, we will look at the role different printers play in office life, as well as which printer is right for you.

Inkjet Printers

If you and your employees find yourselves relying on colour printing or photographs day in day out, inkjet printers are a fantastic choice. Whether you find it beneficial to embellish your marketing materials with high-quality colour images, or you prefer to use a variety of hues to brighten up the office with a printout of different processes, these printers are reliable. They also offer outstanding quality, making them a number one choice for offices today.

Fairly cost-effective, inkjet printers are generally available in two settings; single and multifunction. The model you choose will ultimately depend on your office’s needs. For example, if you regularly rely on fax and scanning technology, the multifunction option will be better for your business. On the other hand, if you are looking for a printer solely for the purpose of printing, the single option is ideal.

Colour Laser Printers

If your core focus as a business is speed and a simple text-based format, colour laser printers are ideal. Not only do they typically have a quicker page-per-minute rating, but they have a number of handy features that are useful in an office setting. The former is particularly great if you’re in a rush to get to a meeting and you need a ten-page document quickly.

Despite this speed though, quality is not compromised, and businesses can produce flawless text-based documents at the touch of a button.

3D Printer

Our final printing option is an advancement recently made available to businesses all over the world. 3D printing is just what you need if you regularly outsource services to print basic models. This may even be for products, in which case having your own 3D printer will be much more efficient.

Though the upfront cost may set you back a little, it will save money in the long-run in terms of outsourcing costs. Also, you’ll have everything you need in-house, meaning you can focus less on finding a company to do it for you and more on improving your services or products even further.

So, which printer is best for you?
