Choosing the Right Small Business Printer

Studies show that a shocking 8 in 10 small businesses around the world still rely on printers to perform daily operations. When these printers fail, businesses are forced to fill the gaps with reactive purchases, wasting precious time and money. Even in today’s largely digital age, the majority of businesses say that they cannot operate without a printer. Sectors like law and automotive print over 200 pages per day, healthcare over 100, and finance and accounting around 50.


Printed paper has been found to promote and encourage both a longer attention span and a stronger working memory. In fact, 29 of 33 laboratory studies have found that readers learn more from paper than from screens. Despite these benefits, there are still several problems with printers that may deter business from using them regularly. Over 50% of people own printers that break once a month or more, and more than half of all internet-connected printers are unsecured.

There are two main options for small businesses to choose from when purchasing a printer: Ink or laser. Ink by the gallon is more expensive than insulin, and often smudges, dries up, or expires. Laser toner, on the other hand, avoids many of these grievances and may be the key for modern day businesses owners. It is for these reasons that experts advise to never underestimate the power of the printed word even in a world where everyone seems to be going digital.
