Choosing a new photocopier can be a daunting task, especially if you’re replacing an existing machine. There are so many features and options from which to choose.
That’s why we’ve put together this guide to help you choose the best photocopier for your office.
Before you begin looking at the different features on offer, it’s worth spending some time thinking about what you really need from your photocopier. This will help narrow down your options and mean you can focus on the machines that are likely to be a good match for your needs.
How much do you want to spend?
The first step in choosing a new photocopier is deciding how much you want to spend. This will help narrow down your options considerably, as there are plenty of different price brackets within the market.
If budget is no concern, then you may want to look at some of the premium machines on offer, such as those from Xerox or Konica Minolta (formerly Kyocera). These high-end models come with a wide range of advanced features including touchscreen control panels, automatic duplexing and more. However, for most businesses the cost of these machines will be prohibitively expensive – especially when compared with cheaper models that offer similar functionality and quality printing results.
If your budget is limited then it makes sense to look at cheaper models that deliver excellent value for money without compromising on quality too much.
How many people use the printer? If it’s just one person or a small group of people who use the machine regularly, then it makes sense to buy something small and compact so that it doesn’t take up too much space in the office. However, if there are several people using the photocopier regularly then you might want something bigger with more features.
What kind of print jobs do you have? If all you ever use your photocopier for is printing out letters or memos then maybe all you need is something simple that can print quickly without fussing around with different settings or options.
Another factor to consider is how fast do you need your copies? If you’re looking for something quick and easy, then there are plenty of models available that can produce high-quality black & white copies in seconds. However, if colour printing is important to your business then there are lots of options available here too – from simple single-colour printers up to full colour machines that offer amazing quality output at speeds of up to 60 pages per minute!
