Matching Work Load When Choosing A Printer

It has to be good news for the environment and business cost efficiency to be able to reduce use of copier paper, laser toner or ink cartridges. Despite ofthe increasing tendency to view and store data on computer only, there are still a great number of businesses, especially SME and home workers where physical printing of pages is necessary and essential to their services.
Obviously, it's important to realistically check off the key needs that a business will simply require every day from a printer, and also look carefully for replacement costs of items like drums and compatible ink cartridges. Today, there is a bewildering range of different types of printers, each offering their own multi-function applications.
It's important to firstly know the difference between a machine produced for high volume printing at speed and another designed for brochure-quality graphics. Will the mainstay of daily work involve simple and quick black and white A4 sheets or require more complicated, long length business documents? Many compact desktop and all-in-one copiers will not be able to so easily handle large documents. Copiers installed with inkjet cartridges are better for photo-quality graphics, while  copiers using laser toner cartridges provide
cost efficient speed for larger volume text copying.
If meeting last minute deadlines is to be a daily occurrence, then speed is crucial to completing printing documents. Fast warm ups of ten seconds or less from machine switch on should be the machine to look out for rather than having to feed individual sheets of a long document into the copier feeder! It's going to be simply inefficient and time consuming.
Businesses with a daily document volume requirement in excess of say, 4 to 10 pages at a time, will be best served by a copier with a paper capacity of at least a minimum of 250 sheets and can handle at least 30 sheets via its automatic document feeder. There are even copiers that can also fold, staple, and arrange papers in a set order as they're being copied. This is important to saving time and be extremely useful if large numbers of complex documents need to be regularly printed and collated in a set order.
Working space, whether within a small office or at home, is always a prime consideration, and needs to be tied in with the number of functions required. Today's desktop copiers can occupy only a small amount of space yet are designed to still handle at extensive business volume copying tasks. Increasingly, machines are manufactured to be multi-purpose, offering printer, fax machine and scanner.  They also will take up much less space if bought as an all-in-one machine which can supply relatively high volume documents with good photo and document quality.
A laser copier designed for high speed volume will likely cost more as an initial purchase, but the longterm saving on regular toner can be less, while inkjet printers for daily low volume page text or image usage are always more cost efficient when using compatible or OEM inkjet cartridges.
