What is the best printer for my small business?

If you run a small business, you’re probably looking for a reliable printer that doesn’t cost too much to run, and doesn’t jam or break down every time you need to print something in a hurry. You may be looking for speed over quality, or you may print your own collateral and marketing materials so you need crisp, vibrant colours.


Laser printers are fast and, if you don’t need colour, you can get a relatively cost-effective option using a black-and-white laser printer. Laser printers may seem more expensive to run at first, because toner cartridges are typically more expensive than inkjet cartridges, however you can often get a higher page yield from toner cartridges, making them less expensive over the long term.


If you’re printing high volumes, then you need a printer that won’t break down, as well as one that offers the most cost-effective consumables over the long term.


Laser printers produce far-superior print quality to inkjet printers with longer-lasting outputs – inks that don’t run or fade over time especially important for legal or archival documents.


Multifunction devices (MFD) combine printing, photocopying, scanning, and faxing in one machine. This is ideal for small businesses that don’t need a dedicated machine for these functions and, often, don’t have the space for separate machines. Keeping it all in one machine cuts down on running and maintenance costs while delivering a convenient, versatile solution.


Most printers offer internet connectivity and mobile printing through easy-to-use touchscreens and interfaces. However, if mobile printing is important to your business, then it pays to seek out a printer that offers strong mobile capabilities.
