How to Choose a Business Printer

Choosing the right business printer can drastically increase efficiency within your company. The opposite is true, as well! A business printer that cannot handle large jobs or frequent use can hurt your company’s productivity and frustrate employees. While searching for a business printer, consider these elements:

Functions & Features

There are many types of business printers – simple, complex, small, bulky, cheap, expensive… the list goes on. One of the elements to consider while buying your business printer is what functions and features you need it to have. Consider the following:

  • Automatic document feeders
  • Copying
  • Energy star compliance
  • Multipurpose trays
  • Scanning
  • Touch screen controls
  • Two-sided printing

Cost for Ink & Replacement Parts

Buying your business printer will likely be the largest expense when dealing with this machine, but it’s wise to take into consideration the cost for ink and replacement parts (if needed). Knowing what the cost is up front will help you budget and know what to expect when the business printer needs your attention.

Print Speed

If you have to print out several hundred (or more) papers each week, you’ll want to minimize time spent waiting for your printer to complete its job. This allows you to maximize your employee’s efficiency at work and complete other tasks faster.


Conduct research on your business printer! What are other people and companies saying? What kind of reviews has it received? Consistently positive reviews are a good sign that a business printer is high quality. Also, consider the amount of reviews it has.
