Printing is an essential process for any business, no matter how big or small. Whether you print regularly, or it’s only a couple of times a week, it’s important that your printer can deliver and do the job to a high standard. After all, you might be printing important contracts or documents to impress clients, so avoiding poor ink and paper is a must.

Making sure your office technology is spot on can be the difference between an efficiently-run company, or one that comes up against technical glitches on a daily basis. But where do you start? How do you know which printing system is going to benefit you and accommodate your needs?

For years, there has been an ongoing debate between inkjet and laser printers. Laser printers have often been favoured in an office environment, but the tables have been turned. Thanks to developments in printer technology, you can now implement inkjet printers into your business successfully.


Improvements in inkjet printers

The biggest disadvantage of inkjet printers in the past has been the speed of printing, often not being able to quickly deliver the volume of documents that businesses require. For this reason, many companies would turn to laser printers for their needs, compromising slightly on quality of colour printing in the process.

Now, inkjet printers have undergone a makeover. Many of the major printer manufacturers have developed their product line, to include faster, lower cost printing that uses ink, as opposed to the toner used in laser printers. This has resulted in a resurgence of inkjet printers being used in business environments. However, you still need to be savvy when it comes to choosing the right inkjet printer for your office. Using it wisely can have an impact on your costing and management, so it’s an important decision to make.

In the past Inkjet Printer cartridges were seen as printing fewer pages before they needed replacing that their Laser Printer Cartridges. This resulted in higher printing costs. Times have changed and the new generation of Inkjet Printers print pages at a lower cost than before. By using high yield cartridges the cost of pages printed can be equal to, or even lower, than a Laser Printer.

Choice of inkjet printers

Inkjet printers have increased their efficiency, allowing you to print productively and even helping you to save on your costs in the process. There are a number of options available to you, from some of the top printer brands in the industry.
