We have all been there: you are stuck standing at your local mall and racking your brain for what your wife, husband, brother, sister, mom, or dad said they wanted for the holidays. Well, we have good news! You don’t have to worry any more, since we’re here to help with picking out a gift that’ll work for everyone this holiday: a new printer! Buying the right printer for a loved one can turn a so-so gift into an amazing gift that they’ll use for years to come. How do you know what to look for? Well, we will show you!
You know your loved one, regardless of whether it’s family, a spouse, or a close friend, better than we do so make sure always take into account their personality and habits. Are they someone who really loves artwork, or someone who does a lot of work at home? Are they a parent who will need to be printing schoolwork, crafts, and school pictures or are they a workaholic who can’t live without the latest company report? Make a mental list of what your loved one would most use a printer for and jot down a few topics – this will help you pick out something that works for their individual lifestyle.
Not many people know this, but printers come with a very wide variety of functions. Certain printers excel at printing artwork, and have specially created cartridges that can produce thousands of colors within minutes. For the artist or photographer in your life, you may want to consider one of these. They’re typically used for the pursuit of the arts, but can of course multitask and help with work or home document printing as well.
For the busy family, going with an eco-friendly option might be a good call. Parents know more than anyone that last minute projects pop up every second, and being able to print a 2-page report for every kid in the class at the drop of a hat makes their lives just that much easier. We’ve talked about how to preserve and get the most out of your ink and toner cartridges before, but having the right equipment means that they will be prepared for anything at any time, making the right printer a gift that they will be grateful for in the years to come.
Of course, there are those people who need to be able to use their printer for a variety of different tasks. Printing display boards for the next client meeting, place cards for a holiday party, or running through paper reams for a college thesis are all things that make having the right equipment crucial. We recommend speaking to one of our specialists to make sure that you get the right printer for your loved one this holiday season – and we guarantee that they will love it!
