Choosing a printer for your home office is very different than buying a printer for an office or large organization. The priorities differ in smaller offices and your office equipment should differ accordingly.
What considerations should you make? What type of printer should you look at? What is the best printer for home offices?
While the answers to these questions are not black and white, there are a few points we can make to help you narrow down your search.
What is the main purpose of your printer? Will you be using the printer for home use as well?
Often times, you will end up printing photos or cards from your home printer, while you may not need these capabilities for your home office. You may choose to invest in a printer that is capable of both heavy photo printing and standard black and white document printing.
Traditionally, printers that were great at color printing, weren’t as good at printing black and white documents at 50 pages per minute. Today’s printers are much better at both, so while you may be investing in one specific expertise (image/color printing or black and white document printing) your printer will be perfectly capable to do both.
One consideration to make is the pricing difference between ink and toner for laser vs. inkjet printers. Connect with a print professional to dissect the differences and determine which is more appropriate for your home office.
