Printers for Business
Although we all understand what a printer is, most are likely unaware of the variety offered. Printers are machines for printing text or pictures onto paper, especially one linked to a computer. From personal home printers to large commercial printing devices, they are not one-size-fits-all. This is important to know when deciding what printer is best for your business.
Home Office Printers – Inkjet
The most common printer you will find is the standard home office inkjet printer. These printers have advantages and disadvantages based on your frequency, need, and footprint.
When working with small businesses, you might find it reasonable to have an Inkjet printer in an employee’s office. Low-Cost Inkjet printers work best when printing black and white reports, spreadsheets, and text documents. Their small size tends to be a big advantage. They warm up quickly but print slightly slower. If you find yourself needing to print imagery or lots of color, you could possibly have wet-prints.

Multifunction and All-In-One Inkjet Printers
Much like your standard Home Office Inkjet Printer, these devices have the advantages of being smaller and affordable. The difference between an MFP and a Home Office Printer is a multifunction printer can perform printing, copying, scanning, and faxing. Depending on your company role, an MFP might be a better option.
You will often see Multifunction Printers called All-In-One Printers. These printers have all of the benefits of a Home Office printer, but also have the same disadvantages in high cost per page and wet prints.

The distinction between Laser Printers and Inkjet Printers might seem small to the average business professional. Laser printers draw images onto a copier drum. Laser printers are traditionally more efficient than inkjet printers and used in large office settings.
The major advantage for laser printers is the cost savings per copy. They tend to produce faster prints, thus helping with efficiency. The drawbacks are usually size and warm-up time. Laser printers are also great with black and white prints and great with small images that require detail.

Much like a laser printer, LED Printers offer an efficient printing solution. LED printers are similar to laser printers but use a light emitting diode rather than a laser to create images on the print drum or belt. They are a reliable solution that produces quality prints.
What Printer is Best for Your Business?
MOS Office Systems wants to eliminate the difficult decision and research that goes into making your printer selection. We understand that there is no blanket answer for what is the best printer. The best printer is the device that fits your needs and budget.
There are advantages of having a Home Office Inkjet and also advantages of purchasing a multifunction laser printer.
When deciding on what printer you need, ask the following questions:
Do you need to do more than just Print?
Sometimes we think all printers come with scanning, copying, and faxing capabilities. That is not true. If you want to make copies or scan, you need a Multifunction or All-in-One Printer. Single function printers do exist if you only need to print.
Single function printers are good for individual employees with their own offices. If the location has a central multifunction printer, this could be a great option for their office or cubicle.
Will you need to print in color?
There is a reason why black ink is less expensive than color. If your office is primarily printing documents, laser printers are usually the best way to go. Laser printers are fast and cost less per page. Inkjet printers have a slight advantage when it comes to printing color documents, but you double-down on cost. Inkjets cost more per print and colored ink is more expensive.
Law offices, schools, hospitals, and churches are some of the common business types that can benefit from a laser printer. These businesses often print in bulk and don’t require a ton of colored images.
How many documents will you be printing?
When you are looking to print in bulk, you worry about speed and cost. If you only find yourself printing one or two documents a day, you probably could settle for a lower end printing device. If your office shares a central printer, you might consider a laser printer due to the speed.
Besides being faster, laser printers reduce the overall cost of printing. Laser toner does not dry up if left unused and you tend to get more printed pages out of laser cartridges than inkjet.
Most office settings benefit from having at least one laser printer to handle documents and large quantity prints.
Will you be printing photos or brochures?
Inkjet printers are known for having better quality color images. If you are a creative service or plan on printing all of your marketing materials, inkjet printers will provide you with a higher quality print. This does come with a larger price tag for replacement cartridges, but many creative industries rely on every pixel being clear and defined.
Often creatives utilize a local print shop, but if you are print in bulk it might be more cost efficient to invest in your own business inkjet printer. Graphic designers, advertising agencies, and photographers benefit from having a high-performance inkjet printer.
What size documents will you be printing?
Most individuals and businesses know that 8.5 by 11 is the standard paper size for printing. Law offices, banks, and real estate agents also utilize 8.5 by 14. There are other industries and businesses that also plan on printing on envelopes, business cards, and posters. Not only are there different paper sizes, there are different weights.
Knowing what types of documents you will be printing is important before deciding on a printer for your business. Some printers offer the ability to easily print front and back, collate, and even staple your documents.
Schools, churches, and government offices benefit from having many of these features built into their office printer.
