Factors to Consider When Buying an Office Printer

Our choices above were made from a long history of experience and user feedback. This may not be your top choice, however. To further narrow your choices down, consider all the factors.


A multifunctional device is the obvious choice in saving money and space, but when considering this option, be sure to assess the level of innovation you need for your office needs. By monitoring current usage of your office equipment, you will start understanding the need for document and workflow management features needed. 


Besides the initial cost of your equipment, it is important to research the machine’s capabilities in terms of consumable replacement costs. Note the number of prints that you will get from a new ink replacement for example, and how available the replacements will be.

Also consider that an outright purchase of new equipment is not always necessary. A refurbished machine is cost effective, reliable, and in our case, completely green. 

Renting your printer is also an option that is flexible and convenient. 

Inkjet or laser?

Simply put, laser printers use toner, making them most suitable for high-volume printing. Inkjet printers use ink and are best for low-volume, higher resolution printing. 

You want professional print quality either way, which is measured by dots per inch, or DPI. While inkjet printer resolutions typically start at 1,200 DPI, laser printer resolutions typically range from 600 to 1,200 DPI.


Printing speed is expressed in pages per minute, or PPM. Although PPM for pictures and text may vary slightly between printers, the measurement will let you choose the option that best suits your company's demands.

Wireless Access

Printers with wireless or Bluetooth connectivity offer the option of printing from user devices like their smart phones. These printers will be able to access a document management system, which simply means that users can access electronically stored files using the printer without needing to transfer the data through a computer.


Carefully considering your printing needs, expectations, budget and technology requirements will help you make the best decision when buying an office printer. contact us on 086 001 8101 or [email protected] to chat with a member of our knowledgeable, committed sales staff for guidance on a cost-effective print solution for your company.
