Choosing the Right Photocopier For Your Small Business

Updated on January 16, 2017

If you own a small business then a multi-function printer-copier-scanner-fax is the perfect choice for you. It is an affordable and viable method to scale up your business needs. The right copier will increase your business productivity and reduce unnecessary costs.
Here's a basic guide to find a suitable photocopier option for your small business. There are many services like canon copier tech support where you can get expert advice for choosing the right photocopier.

Budget Restrictions:

The real challenge for a small business or a startup is the restricted cash flow due to which careful choices are to be made while buying office supplies and equipment. So, many small businesses have to make compromises on buying smarter and technologically advanced equipment for the office.

But looking for photocopiers that fit your office and budgetary limits can minimize the compromises.

Speed: The most sought after feature of a copier which affects the price is the speed. If there are less number of persons who require access to the copier then you can choose other features like higher volume or better quality printing resolution over speed.You can also look out for photocopiers in the range £300-£400 with high printing speeds. Canon iR1020 is a black and white laser photocopier which can cater to both printing and scanning needs of your small business. It is a great value for money as it can easily produce 20 pages in a minute at A4 size. The latest digital copiers can print around 22 ppm on the low end up to 100 ppm with higher variants.

Volume: Another important factor which will determine the type of photocopier for your small business is the volume. Basic models are capable of printing 100 sheets in the tray and 250 in the cassette whereas large-scale, multifunction machines can print up to 500 sheets in the tray and more than 2,000 sheets distributed throughout two or more cassettes.

Multifunction devices: Multifunction or production printer models have in-built graphic capabilities like five-color control and high resolution (2,400 x 2,400 dpi standard). These models are quite reliable and can produce high-quality prints for existing physical document or newly produced from compatible software platforms.

Analog or Digital: Analog copier machines can generally be found as backups in offices because of lack of productivity and quality. Most businesses now prefer digital copiers with capabilities like scanning, faxing, distribution, and with built-in storage of around 80 GB. Analog copiers can produce an image with resolution of around 600 x 600 dpi whereas digital models can offer up to 4,800 x 600 dpi with high print quality.
