Choosing a Printer Type
Choosing the right printer type for your needs is one of the most important factors to consider before making your purchase.
For business and office use Printerland’s range of laser printers are perfectly suited to tackling high volume print jobs at high speeds.
Laser printers use high speed lasers combined with microscopic particles of ink called toner which are melted at high temperatures to produce high resolution prints at far higher speeds than inkjet equivalents.

Boasting impressive print quality and low running costs a laser printer provides consistent, reliable results making them a valuable addition to any busy workplace.

With each brand offering their own unique features and attributes and models available to suit all budgets, you can find a laser printer perfectly matched to your needs.
For printers for home users, an inkjet printer offers high quality printing with low initial hardware costs.
Inkjet printers use highly pigmented liquid inks to deliver vibrant, high-resolution prints. Suited to photographic and image-based printing inkjet printers provide a low-cost alternative to laser models.
A3 inkjet printers are also available, geared towards producing professional quality A3 prints perfect for creative and commercial projects.
Due to their lower print speeds and higher long-term running costs compared to laser printers, inkjet printers are well-suited to low volume home printing.
The size of the prints you require is an important factor to be considered before making a purchase.
With most printers capable of printing up to A4, users can produce a varied range of prints on a range of standardised and custom media sizes.
However, for those looking to print beyond the limits of A4, Printerland stocks a wide range A3 and large format printers.
Offering a huge range of commercial, creative, and cost saving benefits, A3 printers allow users to print larger documents quickly and efficiently.

Single Function or Multifunction
Another factor to consider is whether you require a single function printer or a multifunction model.
Work environments that need a central hub for a variety of office tasks can benefit from a multifunction printer with Print/Scan/Copy/Fax capabilities.
For those requiring print functionality only, a single-function printer is a cost-effective choice.
Available in both colour/mono as well as inkjet and laser varieties, our range of single-function printers boast a range of impressive features including double-sided printing, Windows and Mac compatibility and more.
If you require additional functionalities to printing alone, a multifunction printer can provide a range of benefits.
Combining multiple roles into a single device, a multifunction printer includes the same high-quality printing of a single-function machine with added Scan/Copy/Fax capabilities.
Whilst a multifunction printing solution may have a higher initial hardware cost when compared to a single-function printer, the long-term cost-saving benefits can be considerable.
Consolidating the roles of several appliances into a single device, a multifunction printer can drastically reduce the number of resources required.
With lower levels of consumables, media and energy consumption when compared to separate single-function machines, a multifunction printer can significantly reduce overall running costs.
In addition to the economical benefits of owning a multifunction printer, an MFP takes up far less space than individual appliances making a multifunction printer an attractive choice for workplaces where space is at a premium.
Printerland stocks a comprehensive range of multifunction printers from leading manufacturers ensuring you can find an all-in-one solution that meets all for your requirements.
Low Running Costs
Finding a printer with low running costs is imperative for home and business users alike. Whilst a printer may have low initial hardware costs this does not necessarily equate to low overall cost of ownership over the long term.
To ensure you find a printer that delivers the lowest running costs for your needs, you will need to factor in a variety of attributes including cost of supplies, printer technology and the length and terms of the warranty.
