Office Printer – Desk Top

The office printer is the workhorse of the office. Alongside the kettle, one of the most useful machines at your disposal.

Selecting or upgrading your office printer is not the most exciting thing you can do. They are not chosen for their good looks! A feature-rich, reliable, and efficient machine, however, will certainly improve your working life.

But how do you know which machine is best for your office?

There is a huge range of office printers – from tiny desktop units to high volume printers. Given the variety of features and styles available, it is always a great idea to ask the experts. Our experienced account managers can guide you through the options and help you decide which is the best all in one printer for office use. Wherever you are in the country, one of our sales team is close to you. They will help you understand what device will suit your requirements, what Canon print lease options are available and how our managed print services will increase the efficiency of your office

Office Printer FAQs: 

What is the best office printer for business use? 

Consider your print volume, size and type of paper used and what quality and finishing you may need as this will determine the printer that best suits your requirements. For example, for small workgroups that do moderate scanning and print no more than 10,000 prints per month, we would recommend the desktop imageRUNNER Advance DX C257i multifunctional printer.  

However, a division producing high-quality booklets and brochures and large volumes of reports would be more suited to one of the imageRUNNER Advance DX C5800 series devices with a booklet finisher attached. In short, horses for courses!      

How do I know the office printer I'm buying is a good investment? 

Printers are increasingly seen as a necessary evil as we become more committed to sustainable work practices. We will always need paper-based information but a clever, efficient document process can help reduce the level of paper generation. We uncover your pain points so that the device you invest in not only prints but also enhances your document process. Add to this, increased security, efficiency and flexibility and you will have a certain return on your investment. 

What is the typical cost of an office printer? 

We can supply a small workgroup multifunctional printer for as little as EUR 35.00 per month on a lease agreement, depending on what model and accessories you need. You will pay between EUR 150.00 and EUR 200.00 per month for high volume copying, printing, and scanning requirements where staple finishing and booklet making may be required. To calculate the overall cost of ownership, it is necessary to consider the ongoing cost of service based on the amount of printing the company does. 

What is a good PPM for an office printer? 

A better question to ask is how much printing/copying is done in my office? 

A good guide is how many reams of paper you go through in a week/month? If you only print 100 pages per week, a very fast device with all the extras is not necessary. If, you are producing volumes of pages, booklets, reports etc, then the PPM is a critical consideration. Your account manager will talk you through all the features and their relative benefits.  

How do I choose an office printer for my business? 

You can review our website- the devices are all listed for ease of reference. For guidance on your selection, we recommend you ask our expert account managers. Contact us by phone or email. Your account manager will take you through all the options to determine what is best for your business.  You will be presented with a proposal that clearly describes how the recommended office printer adds value and simplifies the way you work.
