The Perfect Printer… Depends on You!

Settling for the latest deal in the box store or online may cost you more in the long run. Take a few seconds to learn the difference between printers and see which is right for you.

In general, if you’re a small business or casual print-at-home consumer printing less than 2 reams of paper a month, ink jet is the way to go. For individuals and companies seeking to print large volumes each month, laser printers are best.
