How to Choose Your Desktop Printer or a Labelling Machine

The two biggest decisions to make when it comes to a printer are, do you want an inkjet or laser printer and will you be printing in colour or just black and white.

After those big decisions, the rest are just details. You will be able to choose the correct printer for you by figuring out what functions you are interested in and what price you are willing to pay.

For example, if you need a colour printer, what colour documents will you be printing? Charts and graphs or photos? Photo quality printers are really only for people who plan on printing lots of photographs.

A photo quality printer is not necessary to print typical colour report documents for work and school.

Laser printers are better for printing documents for long retention. Documents printed on inkjet printers do not last as long as laser printed documents.

A wide variety of desktop printers have flooded the market. Amongst all these, there are two major kinds of printers.

Some desktop printers are colour, black/white, and photo printers. These printers can also print by means of a laser jet, a desk jet, or an ink jet system.

As long as the appropriate installation wizards and drivers are available, most printers can function well with any computer. Back when desktop printers first became available to the average consumer in the marketplace, they were often big, heavy, and costly.

Times have changed, however, and modern desktop printers have gotten much smaller. Now, desktop printers are infinitely more portable and, as a result, practical.

Desktop printers have also become quite affordable.

The more things a printer can do, the more it will generally cost. As technology has advanced in recent years, desktop printers have been made that can do much more than simply print documents.

Certain printers can actually print, fax, scan, and copy. These are multifunction printers. So, consider do you want a multifunction printer or a dedicated printer? What do you want to use it for? How much can you spend?
