Office Printers

Laser Printers

The laser printer was developed by Xerox in the 1960s when the idea of using a laser to draw images onto a copier drum was first considered. Laser printers are still widely used in large offices as they are traditionally more efficient than inkjet printers.

Advantages:

● More cost effective than inkjet printers
● Increases productivity
● High print speed
● Higher paper capacity
● Often expandable with Paper Trays, finishers etc.
● Grows with your business

Disadvantages:

● May require short ‘warm-up times’
● Larger footprint
● High voltage usage leads to small carbon emissions

Solid Ink Printers

Solid ink printers utilise a unique form of ink technology, designed to save space and money on packaging. The printers melt solid ink sticks during the printing process – a method which can help produce more vibrant tones.

Advantages:

● Environmentally-friendly
● Produces vibrant tones
● Made from non-toxic vegetable oils
● Compact design
● Consumables require less storage

Disadvantages:

● Requires warm-up and cool-down time
● Prints cannot be laminated

LED Printers

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. Due to their fewer moving parts – LED printers are often considered more efficient and reliable than laser printers. Our most popular LED printers are produced by OKI.

Advantages:

● Reliable and efficient
● Cheaper to manufacture than laser printers
● Often include free warranty extensions

Disadvantages:

● None

Business Inkjet Printers


Utilising inkjet technology on a large scale to accommodate the needs of a busy office with heavy reliance on printed output, inkjet printers are enduringly popular due to their reliability and robust nature.

Advantages:

● Capable of producing highly detailed and photo-realistic prints
● Limited warm-up time required
● Small footprint

Disadvantages:

● Higher cost-per-page than most laser printers
● Wet prints
● Can be less reliable than laser printers
