Printing Systems: Which One, Which One

Printing Systems

"Which one?"

It's a question that must be asked by every business person in charge of an office: what type of printer should we buy? It isn't nearly enough to stop at that simple, broad question because there's much more to it.

Let's go over some initial questions you should ask yourself:

  • What is your budget?
  • Do you want one printing system or multiples?
  • What type of functionality must each system possess?

Once you've answered these questions, you can start delving deeper into questions like:

  • How much money can you spend on things like ink, toner, and repairs?
  • How high of quality are you looking for?
  • Black and white, or color?

Some Options to Consider

Some of the business world's most common printing system choice are:

  • Multifunction Systems
  • Printers
  • Digital Duplicators
  • Large Format
  • Scanners
  • Fax Machines

Some of these choices may seem redundant, but remember, we're trying to help you pick the right system for your needs- not too big, and not too small.

Down to Specifics

Now, consider your multifunction systems. They allow you to print, copy, scan and fax all from the same machine! But, if you have specific sections of the office that only need one of those functions, you may consider buying a printer, scanner, and a fax machine.

Thinking further about your printing needs, perhaps you need to print large batches very quickly. A digital duplicator might be just the ticket for your office.

A wide format printer could also be just the fit for your business. What exactly are you hoping to print? If you answered large, colorful posters which will catch the eye of passers-by, check out our large format printers.

Along with the systems above mentioned, there are many more details to consider, such as speed, cost, and size. If the task of choosing a printer seems a bit daunting, just give us a call. We'd love to help you through the decision process.
