Inkjet printers are a great option for home and office users that print documents with color graphics and photos. They can also print on a wide range of paper sizes and types. Inkjets are an affordable, easy to use choice for quick print jobs, and they don’t need to warm up. Staples® carries a wide selection of inkjet printing machines from leading brands like HP® and Epson®.

Choose Between Regular and All-in-One Inkjet Printers
While a basic inkjet machine can only print documents, an all-in-one model also scans and copies them. That means a 3-in-1 multifunction printer can replace an office scanner and photocopier. There are also 4-in-1 models that add faxing functionality. Although an all-in-one inkjet costs more than a basic unit, its price is lower than the combined costs of the office machines it replaces. This makes it an attractive option for home users and small offices hoping to spend less on equipment. A reduced footprint is another reason to opt for an all-in-one inkjet. Less machines means less space needed, and this machine is only a little bigger than a basic inkjet.

Key Features to Look for When Shopping for Inkjet Printers
These include print speed, tray size, manual feed, and duplexing. Print speed describes the page output of the machine. Measured in pages per minute (ppm), this feature is important for shared printers placed in mid-sized and large offices. Note that black-and-white print speeds are higher than color print speeds. Only choose a model with a print speed of 10 ppm or lower for a home office. Business offices need machines capable of delivering up to 20 black and color pages per minute.

Tray size determines how many sheets you can load into a printer at once. A larger tray means less frequent reloads and less downtime. For an office, look for a unit with a minimum tray capacity of 150 pages. Some printers also include a second tray. These usually offer a manual feed function and allow users to print on specialty paper, letterheads, and envelopes. Automatic duplexing is another desirable paper handling feature. Models with this capability can print on and scan both sides of a page without requiring users to flip the sheets.

What Is a Supertank Printer?
This is an inkjet printer that pulls inks from large refillable reservoirs rather than cartridges. It’s a cost-effective alternative for users with large print volumes. Supertank printers use low-cost ink refill bottles that yield significantly more pages than ink cartridges, some lasting as long as a year, depending on usage.

What Is the Difference Between a Photo Printer and an Inkjet Printer?
Not all photo printers are inkjet machines. Some use dye-sublimation technology to deliver high-quality prints. A dedicated photo printer doesn’t need a computer to print photos. It can connect directly to a digital camera via PictBridge and accept memory cards.

What Is the Monthly Output of an Inkjet Printer?
The number of pages it can print in a month matters so that the machine doesn’t fail. It indicates the durability of the machine. Models meant for home users have the lowest duty cycles, and print less than 10,000 pages per month. For an office, look for a unit with a minimum rated monthly duty cycle of 20,000 pages. High-end models meant for busy offices can output 100,000 pages or more. Choose one with a higher duty cycle than your monthly print volume.
