When it comes to printers, you've got a lot of options to choose from. Inkjet, laser, multifunction--there's so much to know, and it can be difficult to figure out which is perfect for your needs. Multifunction printers are one of the most popular choices, but are they the best for you? Let's find out.

Multifunction printers combine print, fax, copy, and scan functions, and they boast high-quality and high-volume capabilities--but they're not the only choice. You could also go for a laser or inkjet printer, both of which have their own unique benefits. Each type of printer is best for a specific workflow and job type, so how do you choose which one is best for you? Simple: you do a little homework!

  • Inkjet printers are cost-efficient and simple.

If you're looking for a machine with a great initial price and a user-friendly design, then an inkjet printer might be right for you--unless you need high-volume prints or have multiple people trying to rely on the same machine. Inkjet printers are ideal for one person at a time, and, while they are efficient, ink costs can make high-volume prints too expensive.

  • Laser printers are cheaper overall and boast impressive speed.

Laser printers are faster than their inkjet cousins and can print more quickly--but that comes at a price: sometimes, image quality is sacrificed. However, the lifetime cost of a laser printer is less than that of an inkjet printer, although it is still limited by being too small for multiple people to share.

  • Multifunction printers are fast, high-quality, and reliable.

If both the laser printer and the inkjet printer made you hesitate, then the multifunction printer is probably what you need. By cutting down on energy and consumables costs without sacrificing speed or image quality, these machines save you time, money, and stress--and the best part is that they fit into any workflow, no matter how many people are present.
