When you need to print crisp, clear documents for your business, a laser printer is often a better choice than an inkjet printer. Whether a stand-alone printer or a multifunction printer, laser printing is the de facto best standard for use in an office.
And whatever you need, we'll help you get the right product – or mix of products – for your business.
Why is a laser printer generally a better value for business?
Laser Versus Inkjet
Laser printers use a laser to create static electricity on a drum that attracts toner, which is then fused to the paper. An inkjet printer uses ink (of course). There are advantages to toner over ink:
- Ink is one of the most, if not the most, expensive liquids on earth. It's cheaper to operate a laser printer.
- Ink dries out if the printer isn't used for a while, in which case you have to replace the ink cartridge. Toner is a powder and won't dry out.
- When you need color, laser printers are generally cheaper.
- There's a reason inkjet printers are so inexpensive – manufacturers make money on the ink cartridges.
- Crisp printing – ink can smudge, laser printers generally deliver a cleaner, more attractive document
- Reliability – laser printers are more robust and generally have higher-rated monthly duty cycles
For photos and high-quality graphics, ink is superior. For daily office document printing – laser printers are the way to go.
Depending on your requirements, you can opt for a monochrome model or one that prints color.
Especially for high-speed, intensive print needs look for color laser printers that are directly connected to your network with cable. Wireless connectivity is available on many models and easy to deploy, but not as fast.
An underrated cost saver for businesses, many laser printers include this technology today.
Look for Energy Star products. They consume less energy while operating and at rest. Over time, those small savings on your utility bill add up. Look for devices with an economical hibernate function as well.
