There are many options that you have if you want to make color copies and which one you choose will depend on your needs. The first thing you should ask yourself when you are thinking about adding a color copier is whether you really need it.
Sometimes a large print job that needs color is better left to a quick copy store or a commercial print shop. When you are shopping around there are several things you should know. There are basically three types of printers that will give you color copies: an inkjet printer, a laser printer, or a solid ink copier. Each one has its own features that will set it apart from the others.
If you are printing brochures with color photographs or reports that need graphics to show details, a color printer could be what you need to make sure you get the best for your money.
The color inkjet printers are good for small jobs that you need once in a while. They generally will print about 14 pages per minute. A laser printer is faster and can serve your needs by printing at least 26 pages per minute. When you really need speed a solid ink printer will do 30 pages per minute.
The print quality on each of the color copiers will be different because of the way that they use ink as they print. You can expect that both the inkjet and the laser printer will produce quality photos.
If you want professional quality materials and you are set on an inkjet color copier, plan on spending a little for better prints. A solid ink printer will produce high quality prints without major expense and is less expensive than the other two choices.
It is not a good idea to buy a color copier unless you try it out first. You can do this in the store for laser and inkjet printers to test out the print quality to see how sharp the text is with the images. For the solid ink color printer you can contact Xerox for a free printer to be brought to your office.
Bottom Line? I help business better understand the printer/copier industry and empower people to make smart buying decisions.
