For our easy-to-follow guide to buying a new office printer, have a read of this.

What are your needs?

The first thing to do is ask yourself what your printer needs are – it is important to be clear about what you will use the new printer for. If you are unsure about what you will be using your printer for, it is easy to become overwhelmed by all the different printers on offer.

When you are buying a printer for your office, there are a few important things to consider. How fast do you need the printer to print – is speed crucial in your office? Do you need high-quality prints? How expensive is the printer to run – is money a problem? These are all important things to consider when investing in a new office printer.

Think about leasing a printer instead of buying

If you want a printer that has all the newest technology, you may have to spend a lot of money to buy it. But, if you choose to lease a printer instead, you can get a modern model without overspending.

Choosing to hire a printer can make an incredibly expensive printer more affordable. However, it is important to think about other charges. Will you be charged for maintenance? What are the costs for any damage? Do you have to cover the cost of repairs? These are all important things to find out.

If you choose a lease your new printer, make sure to opt for a company that is affordable.

Consider buying a refurbished printer

If money is tight, and you don’t feel like spending your entire budget on a new printer, consider buying a refurbished one. Ricoh in London offer a wide selection of refurbished printers, as well as an excellent range of new printers. To find out more, have a look online.

Refurbished printers are not only cheaper to buy, but they also allow you to get a high-quality product for a low price. Which is ideal if you want a good quality printer without the high price.

What about outsourcing?

If you find that you need to do some high-quality printing, you could consider outsourcing your printing instead of buying a printer. While you will save money on buying a printer, outsourcing your printing can be expensive.

However, by outsourcing your printing to a professional company, you will get a higher quality of printing. Just make sure to choose a reliable and experienced printing company. Otherwise, you may pay a high price for something you could have printed yourself.
