Which printer is right for me / my business?

Things to consider when making your purchase:

  • Initial cost - inkjet printers are cheaper to buy than laser printer, but they are far more expensive to run in the longer term.
  • Running costs - Laser printers are cheaper to run and the cost to print a page is approximately 25% that of inkjet.
  • Photo quality - Photo quality printers offer near photo quality, but are very expensive to use.
  • Text and graphics print quality - laser printers offer the most professional text and graphics quality.
  • Speed - Ink jets are extremely slow and are for home users only. Laser printers are recommended for all businesses.
