Choosing the best printer for your business - don’t be blinded by science

Understanding what types of printer are available will help your decision making process. Basically there are three:

  • Inkjet

Really good for colour and high spec documents. With a low initial cost, inkjets are perfect for small businesses that need to print in colour but only at a low volume.  But replacement ink can be expensive, so talk to Cartridge World about their range of lower cost, fully guaranteed alternatives.

  • Laser

For a small business, printing basic documents, a mono-laser is perfect. It’s quieter, faster and will deliver a better finish. The front end cost may be higher than an inkjet, but running costs are cheaper because you’ll get a lot more pages per cartridge. So long-term, a laser can prove to be the more effective option.

  • Multi-function

Offer printing, scanning, photocopying and faxing in one machine. However they can be ‘Jack of all trades; master of none’. So if, for instance, you need high quality scanning, check output carefully before buying.
