What To Look For In A Printer
Buying the wrong printer can be costly! An undersized printer may have an attractive price tag, but a right-sized printer will cost hundreds and even thousands less over the life of the printer.
This quick video Will help you determine if a workgroup printer is right for you.
Defining what you need in a printer will make the decision much easier. Here are a few questions that should help decide if a workgroup printer is best for you
How much paper can it hold (150-foot roll, 500-foot roll, cut-sheet) where is the paper loaded, and what is the paper cost per square foot
Ink Tank Size & Availability
Small ink tanks may have smaller price tags, but they cost more per ml. Some printers use more ink than others
Cut & Stack
Mid-size to large workgroup printers cut after printing, and most can neatly stack them to save time and increase efficiency
Print Speed & Quality
How fast does each model print plans in black and white or color. Some models produce more accurate line weights and grayscale better than others
Connectivity & Portability
24" or 36" wide? Does it fit in a tight space, or does it need a dedicated room? Wi-fi, Ethernet, or USB? Just a few things to look for before purchasing
Ease Of Use
What software is included and how easy is it to use? Is it quiet enough to keep from interrupting my phone calls and meetings?

Why Buy A Workgroup Printer
The most common type of printing environment is a workgroup. Mid-size to large workgroup printers can increase productivity in these types of settings by giving staff the ability to print what they want, when they need it, 24/7/365.
Workgroup models typically have faster print speeds and can hold larger supplies than smaller, entry-level models. Larger supplies typically cost less per print and last longer, meaning you’ll get more for your money, and you’ll get it faster!
Easy to use, minimal maintenance required, automatic cutting and stacking are just a few reasons to be excited about our workgroup model printers.
Convenience is king, and time is money. Put time on your side to focus on what really matters, serving your customers, and getting the job done!
Is A Workgroup Printer Right For You
These models are versatile, powerful, and have a budget-friendly price tag. They work best in settings with moderate to high monthly print volume, but can also be a great resource for entry-level settings that can grow into the printer.
Each customer is different and printers, unfortunately, are not one-size-fits-all.
