Small printers for big productivity
Investing in a small printer lets advance business projects even when you’re away from the office.
Small photo printers have been available for years, but traditional stand-alone office printers are now becoming more compact and portable. . A small printer can now fit in the palm of your hand and operate by being pointed at a PDA. Small printers using wireless technology can be taken to trade fairs, exhibitions and conferences and can fit easily in hand luggage, and documents can be automatically reduced in size for rapid printing.
Key features in a small printer
A small footprint will save space in your office and if a printer is compact and lightweight, it can be taken on business; or invest in a mobile printer with Bluetooth which slips into your briefcase
Even a small printer can use laser technology to print, so choose this if you need to print high volume marketing materials
A small printer with power saving mode, Economy colour button or fast warm up speeds saves businesses money
Choose a model with faxing/scanning/copying features
Even a small printer can handle demanding print runs and photo printing, so look for a photo printing feature which can handle different types and weights of paper and high resolution images (eg 4800x1200dpi).
It is a good idea to familiarise yourself with different types of small printers before sourcing quotes, as this will give you a better idea of the type of small printer which might suit your business needs:
