If you're stressing out about finding your office's next printer, never fear. We can help simplify the process and boil it down to the essentials.

Today, it can be complicated to find the right printer to meet your needs because there are so many options available. Although it's helpful that you can find exactly the device that your company can use, it can also be daunting to wade through all of the options. Here's how to make the process easier.

1. Choose Color or Black-and-White

The classic question of printing: color or black-and-white? For many companies, the answer is: both. You can lower your overall printing costs by printing in grayscale when you need to and still have color capabilities available. Today's color printers and color ink or toner cartridges aren't as expensive as they used to be, making it easier for companies to afford a color printer.

2. Choose Inkjet or Laser

The biggest difference between typical printers is whether they're inkjet or laser. Laser printers tend to have a higher upfront cost, but the replacement costs of toner are usually lower. For inkjet printers, the inverse is true. Laser printers also tend to be faster, while inkjet printers are a great choice for regular color printing. Ultimately, it comes down to what your company will use most often.

3. Choose Single-Function or Multifunction

Today's printers are more than just machines to create documents. Multifunction printers can pack a productivity punch with the capability to scan, fax, print, and copy all in one machine. Standalone printers can print and copy, and sometimes scan as well. Choose the features that best fit your company's needs.
