3 Common Printer Purchasing Mistakes

3 Common Printer Purchasing Mistakes

It may seem fairly straight-forward to purchase a new copier, but it can be significantly difficult, in fact. Finding the right printer is an important task, and shouldn't be taken lightly. 

It can be beneficial to learn from mistakes, and even better when you learn from someone else's mistakes before making some of your own. That's why we've compiled a few of the top problems individuals experience when choosing a new copier or printer. 

1. Forgetting the Long-Term Consequences

If you're thinking of the short-term consequences, a lower price-tag and a simpler machine might seem like the way to go. But you want a machine that's in it for the long haul, especially able to accommodate your business as it grows. 

Thinking with longevity in mind includes: 

  • Quality
  • Warranty 
  • Technological features 
  • Monthly volume the machine can handle 

Think with the future in mind and you won't have to replace it earlier. 

2. Under-Buying 

Related to #1, this mistake is often made in the name of saving money. Business professionals are often thinking practically, so they assume that buying a low-end model with simple functions will do the trick and be a good investment. But what they don't realize is that they're shooting their productivity in the foot. The right machine will have the functionality you need to get work done—and it's more than practical to choose a few bells and whistles. 

3. Not Researching

Finally, too many business owners choose printers without researching the brand or dealer they're working with. You should choose a dealer with experience and be sure you can trust their recommendations.
