The Big Decision: Color or Black and White Printers

Picking the perfect printer for your office can be difficult. There are many choices out there to choose from, and going with the wrong printer can seriously hinder productivity within your office. If you need a printer to perform a certain function or have a certain output, you must ensure that the printer you are purchasing can meet these needs. High quality color printing is more affordable than ever and can give your documents a new life.

Here are a few of the things to consider when shopping for a printer:

  • Cost – Color is always more expensive than black and white, though there is not nearly as significant of a divide as there used to be. If you need to print in color, it is an obvious choice. Otherwise, you must decide if it will be cheaper in the long run to invest in a color printer now, or outsource color print jobs to a print company down the road.
  • Functionality – Color printers now offer a variety of functions that were not previously available. These features include duplex printing, varying media types, and finishing options.
  • Performance/Quality – It used to be the case that color printers produced a much lower quality print, at a much slower rate than black and white printers. Now however, you can print in high quality color at speeds that are very comparable to black and white printers.
