Which Copier is right for my business?

When shopping for a copier or printer there are a few things that you should keep in mind before committing to the first machine that pops up on your search engine.

What kind of machine are you looking for?

Desktop machines are some of the more convenient options. They let you place your machine in the most accessible location and allow you to complete small jobs with less hassle. No waiting in line to use the larger copier at the end of the hall or worrying about being left with a jam that someone else didn’t bother to clear.

On the other hand, desktop machines have their own downfalls. They cost more to operate and don’t have as many options as a larger machine. A larger machine is also able to keep up with those large jobs that smaller machines have trouble keep up with, both in speed and job capacity.

Do you need to print different size paper?

Smaller machines are a good choice for small offices that only use letter and legal size paper. However, if you need your machine to work with larger sizes or thicker mediums such as card stock or labels then a larger machine is the way to go!

Do you need to print in color?

Color options are available in both size machines but quality is also important. If you are printing out every day images for your child’s school project then a small machine would do just fine. If you were hoping to impress your client with a well put together presentation with sharp images then it would be best to work with a larger, more capable machine.

Do you need a machine that can fold and staple your documents for you?

If this is important to you business workflow then you should not be considering any desktop options. Stapling and folding options are only available on large capacity machines with a finisher.
