Multifunction, or all-in-one printers can be used at home or at the office and can be either inkjet or laser. The smaller versions of 'printer scanner copier' (also referred to as mfp) are typically associated with home use and bigger, faster verions (such as modern-day photocopiers) easily handle the heavy monthly duty cycle of the busiest of offices.
The advantages of the multi-function printer are obvious. They save money as they are less costly to purchase than if you were shopping for separate machines. They save space by containing everything in one compact machine. And they are convenient: having printer, scanner and photocopier in one saves a lot of hassle in terms of networking and accessing each machine.
Having all machines in one machine also looks tidier and is more suited to a busy but smooth-running office environment. More machines mean more cables, and this can be an eyesore. A multi-function printer with wireless connectivity will look so much better. A powerful, multi-function printer will add class to your workspace.
The workflow of your office will also be enhanced by an all-in-one printer. By giving your workers instant access to the different functions of an all-in-one, you will save time and effort and improve the efficiency of their labours.
These days, multi-function printers are no longer geared only toward home use. They are the pulse of many high-pressure office environments that require a serious monthly duty cycle from their printer.
All-in-one printers can be either laser or inkjet. There are various advantages and disadvantages to either but, suffice it to say, the very best of multi-function printers come in both types. Just check out our range of products and you will see that inkjet and laser printers are at both ends of the spectrum in terms of price and where they are designed to be used.
We have so many products that you are sure to find what you are looking for if you are shopping for a multi-function printer. They come in all shapes and sizes but generally they look great, are compact and tidy, and will be a welcome addition to any office or home environment.
Printers are a necessity for modern business. They straddle the digital and physical worlds, providing an easy means by which a business can provide a paper copy of a document for a customer or client. Most modern printers also include a scanning capability, enabling users to easily copy documents or make an electronic copy.
Colour laser printers are the main go to for businesses, large and small. They produce high quality prints and are capable of printing in colour as well as black and white. They are cheaper to run than inkjet printers as they use toner cartridges which can provide hundreds or even thousands of pages before they need replacing.
A colour laser printer can print efficiently and quickly, churning out pages in next to no time. They are easy to use and require less attention than inkjet models. Their disadvantages include a higher purchase price and bulkier size. They are ideal for bulk printing but the increased speed is offset by noise. A colour laser printer is also not ideal for large amounts of black and white document printing as it must combine different toners to create the colour black.
Inkjet printers are the most common type of printer used today. They work by using an ink cartridge which requires refilling or replacement once finished. Inkjet printers are most commonly found in home settings but they can still be found in offices worldwide.
Inkjet printers are good all rounders, capable of printing photos and documents with equal skill. They have higher running costs which is offset by their cheaper purchase price. A typical inkjet printer is quite small and ideal for a home setting. They become cost inefficient when printing in bulk and take noticeably longer than laser printers when printing documents.
Mono laser printers differ from colour laser printers in that they can only print monochrome (black, white, and grey). In all other respects they are similar to a colour laser printer. They use toner cartridges instead of ink cartridges. The higher cost of the toner is offset by it allowing the user to print far more pages before requiring replacement.
Generally speaking, a mono laser printer is usually guaranteed to be cheaper than a colour laser printer and faster than an inkjet printer. They are bulkier and noisier than smaller home printers but they excel at bulk printing of black and white documents. Any business that requires large amounts of printing every month will find a mono laser printer a worthwhile addition.
