Copying and printing have been part of most businesses for a long time. Today, these machines are more sophisticated than ever before. A multifunction printer may be used to combine the functions of these two machines into a single device. In addition to basic printing and copying, multifunction printers offer remote printing and Wi-Fi connectivity, in addition to scanning, copying, and faxing.

You should be aware of the following information before purchasing a multifunction printer (MFP). It is often more affordable to use monochrome printers than colour ones because black cartridges are all that are needed. For a colour printer, however, four cartridges are required: black, cyan, yellow, and magenta. If you purchase cartridges individually rather than in sets, you may save money. In choosing a monochrome printer, you must, however, consider the potential savings against the negative impact on your branding and customers. There are many benefits to colour pictures over monochromatic ones, so you should carefully consider your choices.

Inktank vs. Laser:

It is usually more expensive to buy a laser printer than an inkjet printer, but ink cartridges need to be replaced more frequently than toners. A laser printer’s average cost per page (including color prints) is 15 to 40 Rupees depending on coverage area, while an inktank printer’s average cost per page is 30 to 45 paise.

Ink vs. Toner:

Toner is powdered form in laser printers, while liquid ink is used in inkjet printers. Toner and ink costs should be considered when choosing between two MFPs. Check the number of pages you can expect from each cartridge or batch, as well as the cost of replacement cartridges. Ink refills from third-parties can also be considered, but be sure the ink is compatible; some printers only work with their own proprietary ink.

 Buying vs. Leasing:

Both buying and leasing MFPs have advantages and disadvantages in terms of tax breaks, maintenance, depreciation, and prices. Incase of large volumes Leasing works better. Incase of Low Volumes it is better to Own the Machine.

 Maintenance and service agreements:

Service agreements for digital copiers typically include toner, drums, parts, and maintenance. These agreements are designed to ease office administrators’ and staff’s concerns regarding toner levels and machine performance on a long-term basis. Most manufacturers cover rollers, cleaning blades, and other parts that wear out over time. You should get a complete list of items covered before you buy, as each dealer defines “components” differently.

Hopefully, these tips will help you decide which multifunction printer to buy and where to get it. And if you are in Thane and you have no dealer in mind, D’Horizon Digital Solutions is the best option.
