Types of printers
When it comes to high quality printing, there are a number of popular products available on the market. With your business’s budget and requirements in mind, you should choose high-performance printers that best suit your needs.
The type of printer you require will vary depending on the volume of documents you print, turnaround times, and the type of documents you need to produce.
Multi-functional photocopiers are a popular choice for medium to large-sized businesses. These devices can print large volumes of documents quickly, making them perfect for large-scale document printing needs.

Inkjet printers are ideal for exhibition materials, stationery, roller banners, social distancing signage and promotional items. They are reliable and cost-effective, with a high-quality finish that is sure to impress.
If you need to print large volumes of documents quickly, then laser printers provide fast printing speeds and excellent output quality.
For smaller printing jobs, then an all-in-one inkjet printer is a perfect choice. These are easy to use and cost-effective, making them ideal for the home or office.
Whichever type of printer you choose, it’s important to make sure that your print partner provides the necessary support and training services to make sure you get the most out of your investment.
Laser printers are perfect for large-scale printing needs, offering a faster print speed than inkjet printers. They produce perfectly sharp images, making them ideal for producing text documents and illustrations of high quality. Laser printers also have the ability to print on thicker paper stock or cardstock.
When it comes to laser printers, you’ll need to make sure you pick one that is energy efficient and has a range of features tailored to your business needs. If you are looking for a cost-effective option with good performance, then a mono laser printer could be the perfect solution for your business.

What to consider when purchasing a printer
(E.g. types of popular print products: roller banners, letterheads, posters, leaflets, brochures, large format prints, etc.)
When it comes to purchasing a printer, there are a few factors that you’ll need to consider. You’ll want to think about the type of documents you will be printing and what features the printer has to offer.
Image quality is an important factor to consider when purchasing a printer. You’ll need to make sure that your printer can produce clear, professional-looking documents with sharp image graphics and text that look fantastic.
If this is of high importance to you, then you may want to consider investing in a higher-end printer that can produce high-quality images and documents. It is imperative you work with your chosen print partner to research and compare different models to determine which would be best suited for your business needs. When you combine this with the support and maintenance services provided by your print partner, you can ensure that your printing needs are taken care of.
Size & Speed
The size and speed of the printer are also something you’ll need to consider. If you will be printing large volumes of documents in a short space of time, then a laser printer would be your best option as it offers faster print speeds than an inkjet printer.
You may also want to compare the size of printers – some are designed to take up minimal space, while others are more suitable for larger printing jobs.
Multi-functional photocopiers are also an option if you need to scan, copy and print documents in one machine. They can be quite large, so you’ll need to consider your space requirements before making a purchase.
Ease of Use
Ease of use should be at the top of your list when choosing a printer. It’s important to make sure that you purchase a model that is user-friendly and comes with features such as pop up menus, auto-correct options and clear instructions on how to respond to error messages.
Your print partner should also be able to provide deal and training services to ensure that you get the most out of your investment. They can provide advice on how to maintain your printer, troubleshoot any issues, and offer support for any additional requirements you may have.
Overall, choosing a printer is a major decision that requires careful consideration of your needs and budget. By researching different models and consulting with your print partner, you can make sure that you find the right printer for your business.
You’ll also want to consider the media handling capabilities of your printer. This includes things such as paper size and type, duplex printing and borderless printing. If you need to print items such as postcards or envelopes, look for a model that can handle various sizes and types of media with ease and delight.
You should also consider the additional features your printer offers, such as wireless capabilities, mobile printing, and cloud connectivity. Many of these features can help you to increase productivity and reduce overall printing costs.
By taking the time to research and compare different models, you can ensure that you find a printer that meets your needs and provides years of reliable service. Your print partner can provide additional support and maintenance services, so don’t forget to factor this in when making your decision.
You should also make sure you check the warranty offered with your printer. Most manufacturers will provide a limited warranty for their products, but it’s always best to double-check the details of any extended warranties before making a purchase.
This will give you peace of mind that your printer is covered should any technical problems arise. It’s also a good idea to keep all your purchase paperwork safe and accessible in case you need to make a warranty claim.
Last but not least, we’ll need to consider the price of your printer. As with any purchase, you should make sure that you compare prices from different vendors before making a decision.
It’s important to note that cheaper models may require more frequent maintenance and can offer poorer-quality prints compared to higher-priced models. The rule of thumb is to pay a little more upfront for a printer that will save you money in the long run.
Leasing your new printer can also be a cost-effective option, allowing you to spread the cost of your purchase over an extended period. This can be beneficial if you need to upgrade your business technology but don’t have the budget for a large one-off purchase. Contact us to find out more about our leasing and finance options.

What is the most economical way to print?
Economical printing depends on the type of printer you are using, as well as how often you print. Generally, laser printers tend to be more economical than inkjet printers due to their lower cost per page when printing in bulk.
Additionally, choosing a printer with higher-yield cartridges and a duplex function can help reduce your overall printing costs.
Multi-functional photocopiers are also an efficient way to print, allowing you to print, copy and scan in one unit. They are often more cost-effective than multiple single-function printers when used for larger volumes of printing.
Which printing technology is best?
It depends on each individual clients needs. Inkjet printers are best for small volumes of printing, with a low cost per page and excellent print quality. Laser printers are better suited to larger volumes of printing, offering higher-speed output and lower running costs over inkjet models. Multi-functional photocopiers offer the most versatility as they allow you to print, copy and scan in one unit.
Ultimately, the best printing technology will depend on your individual needs and budget. We recommend speaking with a specialist who can help you choose the most suitable printer for your business.
Bonus tip: Think about long-term savings and cost efficiency before making a purchase decision. Consider how well the printer will fit into your business’s current environment, as well as how future upgrades and expansions might affect it. By doing this you can ensure that you invest in technology that is both up-to-date and cost-effective.
What is the highest quality print?
The highest quality print will depend on the printer you are using and its capabilities. Generally, laser printers offer good-quality prints with high resolutions, while inkjet printers are better suited to photo printing.
Multi-functional photocopiers also provide high-quality prints at a low cost per page. However, they require a large upfront investment, so it’s important to consider the long-term costs before investing in one.
For the highest quality prints, consider investing in a professional printing service with mail order options. This way you can be sure that your prints will look their best and arrive in time for any important events.
