In a world that seems to become more digital by the day, the printer is still an important — and common — piece of equipment in the workplace.
And let’s face it: In this age of data outages, much printing doesn’t require an internet connection — and that can be a good thing when faced with power fluctuations or a natural disaster. Plus, many customers still want hard copies of important information, so a printer is still a necessary piece of office equipment.
But, if you’re a small or medium-sized business, you’ve got a closer eye on the bottom line. You’ll want a small office printer that’s not only a workhorse but can add value to your organization.
That’s why we’ve looked at some of the most critical factors in choosing a small printer for your office and given you some tried-and-true suggestions to meet your needs.
Choosing a Small Office Printer That’s Right for Your Business
There is a multiplicity of reasons you may be considering adding a small office printer to your fleet — or replacing an older, less functional machine. There is an array of printers on the market to choose from, each with their benefits and weaknesses.
We’ve curated some of the best printers for small office use based on a variety of commonly-looked-for factors, such as:
If you’re looking for a great way to bring a wireless printer into your office environment for increased functionality, look no further than the economical Canon TS9120 Wireless All-in-One Printer with Scanner and Copier. At under $100, this printer meets any budget requirements while handling everything from black-and-white documents to rich, full-color photos, with its cutting-edge six-color individual ink system.
The added five-inch LCD Touchscreen makes it easy to add filters on photos and send instructions and the additional connectivity allows printing from most devices using Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, the cloud, or ethernet sources.
If you’re looking for a small office printer with big capabilities, you’ve found it in the Xerox VersaLink C405. As part of the VersaLink family of devices, this little printer is chock-full of features that will skyrocket office productivity. For example, it features the state-of-the-art technology of the Xerox Easy Translator Service app, to easily translate your scanned documents into languages you specify.
A five-inch color touchscreen allows scheduling and print order adjustment in an intuitive way and the optical-character recognition allows you to modify scanned documents for ease of use.
If you have a little more space in your office, you may want to consider the HP LaserJet Pro MFP M227fdw printer for its crisp, reliable, high-quality printing. With a 35-sheet document feeder and the ability to photocopy documents automatically, this quiet printer with the user-friendly touchscreen is perfect for the productive office.
It also features wireless connectivity for multiple users, duplex printing, and a 250 sheet paper capacity.
Cost Per Sheet
