The best printers for small businesses

Little machines that deliver big results for small businesses

Sometimes one of the biggest challenges of running a small business is picking the right equipment for your office. You want reliable equipment like an office printer that won't let you down during peak business periods.

Office printers are still an essential tool for producing documents and media. There's a number of key factors to consider before buying printers for small business offices.

Ask yourself the following questions before you invest in a new model:

  • Is the printer compatible with other software and devices in your office?
  • Can the model's print speed keep up with your office's daily demands?
  • Does your office only require mono printing or do you need colour prints too?
  • Do you require photo-quality prints for the documents you're producing?
  • Does the printer have wireless networking capabilities for cloud apps and mobile devices?
  • What's the estimated running cost based on cartridge yield?

Questions like these will help narrow down your selection of printers for small business operations. If you're still not sure where to begin, we've done some of the hard work for you. Check out our top five list of printers for small business offices.
