How to Choose Between Inkjet and Laser Printers

Inkjet Printers, Laser Printers, and All in One Printers

Picking the right equipment for your office can impact your office productivity and the efficiency of your processes. When your printer doesn’t serve your business, you may find that people work slower or are unable to complete tasks on time. But how do you know what printer to choose when there are so many options?

We will break down two of the major catagories: Inkjet vs. Laser Printers. In the past the difference between inkjet and laser printers were substantial, either because of quality or price. Today, while the playing field is more level, there are still many considerations to make.

Inkjet Printers

Inkjet printers use liquid ink and spray it onto the page in tiny dots. Inkjet printers are generally cheaper than laser printers. For smaller offices and home offices, color inkjet printers are preferred because color laser printers can be expensive and take up more space. Additionally, inkjet printers produce a better gradient than lasers, making inkjet the preferred choice for color printing.

Laser Printers

Laser printers use powder-filled toner cartridges and fuse the powder to the page using heat. Laser printing is great for black and white copies, given that laser printers are much faster thank inkjet printers. Laser printers are great for offices that make a lot of copies/prints and would benefit from the speed and output.
