Determine your office photocopier and printer hire needs

When choosing larger appliances such as printers and photocopiers it is important to do some research before making your choice. Before you shop for a printer or photocopier, sort out who will be using it and for what purpose—and of course, how much you can spend-so you can find the best model for your needs.

Here are several questions you may want to ask and points to bear in mind…

  • What type of device will best suit your needs?
  • Where can I find the product that I want at the cheapest cost?
  • Are there any hidden extras?

What type of device will best suit your needs?

Firstly, take a look at your business needs and decide just what you require before you opt for a printer.  There is little point in buying an all singing, all dancing machine, if you are a really small business who just does the odd bit of photocopying or printing.  However, if your business is a multi-million pound concern and you need an appliance that will be in constant use for printing, copying numerous documents, brochures and legal paraphernalia, then you should go for one that is up to the task.

Printer users generally fall into one of three categories.

a) Home users can be individuals, families, or students. They might not print a great deal, but what they do print may range from anything from a homework projects to photos. This type of user generally looks for versatility and the lower price of a colour inkjet printer.

b) Small office and home office users may print more and are certainly seeking professional-quality output. Some small businesses may think they need a laser printer, but often a similarly priced color inkjet will be just as good and will often have cheaper running costs.

c) Larger business environments will require a printer that can juggle tasks and cope with heavier demand. There are a few supercharged inkjet printers currently on the market, however, laser remains the best printer technology for this group.

Are there any hidden extras?

People sometimes say, 'you get what you pay for', and generally I would agree with this, but sometimes when making larger purchases you may also get more than you bargained for!  Even though something may appear cheaper at the outset, ensure that you also look to see if there are any hidden extras like 'add ons', which will ultimately mean that you pay more in the end.

  • Paragon says
