There are pros and cons to both laser and inkjet printers, and determining which is right for you is essential to increased productivity. Both have different approaches and are appropriate for different needs.
Initial Costs Involved: Although laser and inkjet printers cost about the same, it is good to keep in mind that they have different printing capacities. Inkjet models can print color pages and laser only prints black and white pages.
Ongoing Costs Involved: Calculate cents per page printing by dividing the number of pages a cartridge can produce by the price of the cartridge. Then include the cost of paper and how much you print per month and you will have a rough monthly cost estimate.
Speed and Quality: Laser printing is unparalleled when it comes to black and white pages. You can always expect up to 20 pages per minute, while with inkjets printing is a bit slower (rarely printing more than 6 pages per minute). Normal print sizes have about the same quality with both laser and inkjet. However, lasers do better with smaller fonts than inkjets do.
When deciding what kind of printer is best for you, make sure to keep these things in mind. The printer you choose will make an incredible difference in productivity and efficiency. Check out the Segue Systems product catalog for printing options.
