What printers are suitable for small print shops

For a print shop, buying a multi-functional printer is more cost-effective than buying multiple single-function devices. If you are planning to open a small print shop, I would like to give you some advice:

1. It’s better to choose multifunctional printer

A multifunctional printer is often much cheaper than buying a copy machine, a scanner and a printer alone, and it saves you more space.

Multifunctional printers are not expensive at present. Prices range from $500 – $2000, depending on the printer’s function, printing speed, brand and so on. In addition, to open a printing shop, you should choose a color printer, instead of a black and white printer.

Generally speaking, inkjet printers print color photos better, but the printing speed is slower, while laser printers are suitable for printing general documents, and the color reductivity is slightly worse than inkjet printers. But laser printers are fast. If your print shop is located near the school, laser printers are more suitable.

2. Choose a ink or toner cartridge that are easy to find

Find a ink or toner cartridge easy to find and low cost. Because ink and toner cartridges are the most expensive part of printers. If you buy a new printer, only the original toner cartridges can be selected, and you will find that the new ink or toner cartridges are generally expensive and difficult to find. I suggest you buy a printer, which is mature and having more choose with compatible ink or toner cartridge, it will save you more money.

3. In addition, you should consider some additional conditions

For example, it is better for a printer to print on both sides than on one side. It is better for a printer to print multiple sizes of paper than to print only one size of paper.

In conclusion, I recommend HP M476 series printer. Although the printer is expensive, it is a set of Print, fax, scan, copy printer. In addition, if you buy compatible HP 312X toner cartridges in V4ink, only $17.99 for black and $49.99 for full 4 color set. It is a cost-effective printing device. It will save you a lot of money in the long run.

How many pages can I print per cartridge using an HP Laser printer?

Today, I receive a questions in the quora.com which ask How many pages can I print per cartridge using an HP Laser printer? I think this is a topic worth sharing with you.

As a long-term laser printer user, you will know that different printers use different toner cartridges, so the page yield of different toner cartridges will naturally be different. But not all printer users understand this point, especially those who have just touched the laser printer, may think that the toner cartridge used by the printer has a fixed amount of printing. Today, V4ink is here to discuss this topic with you.

Is the page yield of toner cartridge the same?

Obviously no! Different toner cartridge have different page yield, even they are both compatible with the same printer equipment, but the page yield of them may have some difference.
For example, the HP CF410A and CF410X, which compatible with the same printer equipment but have different page yield.

HP CF410A(K), which page yield is 2,300 pages per cartridge(Showing on the following picture).

HP CF410X(K), which page yield is 6,500 pages per cartridge(Showing on the following picture). The page yield of the CF410X is double of the CF410A.

Because the HP CF410A is low yield which suitable for users who with small print volumes and the HP CF410X is high yield which suitable for users who with high print volumes. That’s why they have such difference.

Will the number of pages I actually print be the same as the pages yield display on the web page?

Not always! The page yield on the web page is only a reference value. How many pages you actually print depends on how much coverage you print. The page yield displayed on the web page is the national standard of 5% coverage (Letter/A4).

If your average print coverage per page exceeds the 5% coverage standard, the actual number of pages you print will be lower than the page yield displayed on the web page. If your average print coverage per page is less than the 5% coverage standard, then the actual number of pages you print may be higher than the page yield displayed on the web page.

How to distinguish a toner cartridge is good or bad?

Nowadays, with the increasing reform of laser printing technology, the price of expensive laser printers has gradually become cheaper and cheaper. Because laser printers do not have a series of shortcomings such as easy plugging and slow printing speed of inkjet printers, more and more families and units adopt laser printers. Canon, HP and Lenovo have launched desktop laser printers, which further enhance the popularity of laser printers.

When it comes to laser printers, it is essential to mention the key consumables of laser printers – toner cartridges. As we all know, compared with inkjet printer cartridge and continuous supply, the development ability of laser printer comes entirely from toner cartridges. It can be said that the quality of the toner cartridge directly restricts the printing effect. Therefore, buying a high-quality toner cartridge for your printer not only plays an important role in protecting the printer and prolonging the printer’s life, but also ensures the accurate development and clarity of printed documents.

So how can it be regarded as a good toner cartridge? What qualifications should a qualified toner cartridge meet?

Compared with the high “price” of the original consumables, the general consumables launched by many domestic manufacturers appear to be cheaper. It only needs less than one fifth of the cost of original consumables, but it can achieve printing effect no less than that of original consumables. Who would refuse this cheap and good thing?

However, because of the low threshold of printing consumables industry, the laser consumables products on the market are also mixed. Even if it’s a general consumable for the same printer, the cheap toner cartridge on the Internet costs less than $10, even hundreds of over $300. Why is the price so different for the same printer? How to distinguish the good and bad of toner cartridge when choosing and purchasing?

Good cartridge VS bad cartridge
1. Does the toner cartridge use high-quality plastic part.
Generally speaking, quality toner cartridge mostly chooses all new materials, each plastic part is purchased from the regular channel, which ensures environmental protection and quality. So the price is naturally high. V4ink compatible toner cartridge(e.g hp 305a) which use high-quality plastic part and through the professional technology, the parts inside the toner cartridge are combined together, and the integrated structure can effectively avoid the leakage of toner.
It can be said that high quality cartridge won’t be deformed because of high temperature deformation and good combination with machine. However, most of the inferior rubber parts are made of recycled materials or inferior raw materials, which are fragile, inelastic and sometimes noisy, seriously affecting the service life of printers.

2. Does the manufacturer have chip development capability.
Many people do not know why compatible consumables can be identified by original printers. In fact, the secret lies in the small IC chip compatible with consumables. Good chips, because of their precise machine recognition and high error correction rate, basically print experience will not be much different from the original consumables. And poor quality chips can cause a lot of trouble, not only printer frequent error, but also may cause a variety of printing problems. Therefore, the chip is also an important difference between big manufacturers and small manufacturers.

3. The quality of drum core is good or bad.
The drum core of toner cartridge is the most important photosensitive part of toner cartridge. High quality toner cartridge can bring good printing effect, especially at the printing level. However, the low-quality toner cartridge has a short life because of its low-cost drum core. Maybe you don’t realize the difference when you start printing, but after hundreds of pages of printing, it often happens that there are deep and shallow prints, and the sharpness of the prints decreases seriously. The high-quality toner cartridge will not have this problem at all, only when the carbon powder is nearly exhausted will the printing blackness decrease.

4. Carbon powder used in drum core
High quality carbon powder particles are uniform, low melting point and firm fixation. Generally speaking, high-quality toner cartridge are made of carbon powder from imported raw materials, which can ensure the stability and clarity of printing. More importantly, they are environmentally friendly and healthy, and contain no harmful substances except carbon black. The biggest problem of inferior carbon powder is that its composition is complex and contains harmful ingredients to a certain extent. Long-term use will inevitably have an impact on health.

Why do printers still suck 2018?

  1. Printers are delicate and complex machines. Printer parts are small and accuracy is very important. Small motors with carefully calibrated configurations require very little room for error when operating. Vibrations, high power, heat/cold, and general misuse will lead to maintenance problems sooner or later. Noise is a major complaint in the industry, many manufacturers have switched to plastic gears to reduce sound.
  2. Printers are designed with narrow specifications. Each printer model is carefully engineered to hit certain criteria and design parameters. Unfortunately most people choose a printer that is not properly designed for their printing needs or environment which leads to many common problems.
  3. Printing as an industry is not robustly profitable. Most of the innovations in printing involve finding ways to become more efficient with existing technologies (Ex. PageWide inkjet arrays, LED Laser, etc). Users generally want to do everything they can to cut down costs wherever they can because printing is a hard dollar cost that everyone can see impacting their pocketbook.
  4. Most people do not properly maintain their printer. Inkjets in particular require consistent maintenance to keep the print heads and cartridges clear from clots. Jams are often not properly handled resulting in worn rollers and gears, which leads to jams and then worn parts…
  5. Many printers are designed to be swapped rather than fixed. This is the nature of the beast. For example if you buy a new printer for under $100.00 then chances are its not worth anyone’s time to fix it. A tech would likely charge more than half of the value of a new printer just to look at it. Parts are generally not available for low end printers so anything beyond a common repair is a lost cause. In essence you tend to get what you pay for.
  6. Users tend to find ways to break printers that developers couldn’t have thought of. More features means more points of failure which will lead to more headaches. Using the printer within the specifications of its design is important to a happy printer relationship. The less your printer is spec’d to do the more budget can be invested in specializing for those features.
  7. Print hardware does not keep up with the software its forced to work with. A great example is an OS upgrade for a printer that currently works perfectly. No drivers means no printing in that situation. At some point a vendor must decide what is worth their time and effort to support and eat any losses associated with that decision.
  8. Printers never break at a convenient time. Users tend to only print right when they are done working or heading out the door. The timing of print errors quickly compounds any existing frustration and typically leads to additional problems or hardware failures.
  9. Print error messages are historically not user friendly. For example PC LOAD LETTER which became immortalized from a scene in the movie Office Space. A less popular but still significant print error would be lp0 on fire. Print error messages have improved significantly with the addition of better control panels, LCD screens, Embedded Web Servers and administration software but previous confrontations with printers remain fresh in many users minds.
  10. There are many elements to any printer problem. The output that you see in the paper tray is a result of a series of events including but not limited to the print application, print driver, print spooling service, print server, physical connection, firmware and finally the physical printer components themselves. It takes a while to learn proper isolation techniques so you can quickly and efficiently fix printer problems which most people don’t have the time or interest in doing.
  11. New cartridges are coming out all the time. This means that older ink/toner becomes harder to find and more expensive. Newer machines won’t accept the old ink you have from your last printer. Manufacturers are also working to develop even the smallest improvements in ink or toner cartridge formulas to give them an edge in quality over the competition. Advances in cartridge technology temporarily set back 3rd party cartridge manufacturers who cut into the printer manufacturer’s profit.

What Needs to be Considered when Buying New Printers?

Buying a printer is not like buying clothes. You need to think about it in advance. Because printers are relatively expensive, they need to use a lot of consumables later on, which is a lot of money, so before you find a really suitable printer, you have to consider these things:

Printing frequency: high or low? Inkjet printers cost a lot of printing every time. But laser is much cheaper. If you plan to do a lot of printing, in the long run, laser printers are worth investing. In addition to cost, laser printers are faster, and inkjet printers will need more time to print.

Black-and-white or color: If you typed mostly black text on a white background, black-and-white printers would be more affordable. And if you need to print a lot of color pictures or charts, you need to know when choosing a color printer. Usually, color inkjet printers are inexpensive. Color laser is expensive.

Price Range: Inkjet printer front end is significantly cheaper (that is the price of the printer), but back end (that is printing ink) is significantly expensive… The cost per page is much higher than that of laser printers. You must weigh the initial cost and maintenance cost, and the cost per print to see which is more suitable for you.

Print Volume: Print volumes usually depend on the number of printed pages used to toner cartridge, but this should also be taken into account when choosing a printer model. For example, how many A4 sheets you need to print a month will depend on what type of print consumables you need to buy in the future, and the choice of printer cartridge is an important factor in considering cost.

Printing quality: Both inkjet and laser printers have high-quality printing models, but I find that laser printers are generally only slightly better. And you can use laser to print photo.
Household or company use:

Just printing or still needs more: multifunctional laser printers have other functions that inkjet printers don’t have. They can work as fax machines, connect to the network via WiFi, store print jobs, work as copiers, work as scanners (to computers, emails, even faxes), work as fax machines, zoom in / out, even duplex (copy / scan both sides of the page), and so on. A machine does all this. Therefore, the laser printer is better on the choice of multi-function printer.

Usage scenario: is it in the office or at home? If it’s for home use, I would recommend buying a WiFi multifunctional laser printer so that everyone in the family can connect to and use the printer. If you are in the office, you can choose a versatile color laser printer(e.g Hp Color LaserJet Pro M452nw). The page yield of its compatible toner cartridge cf410a is 2,300 and only cost $25.99. Because of the large amount of office printing, the price of single page printing will be relatively low, less home printing, so the price of single page printing will be relatively high.

Choice of print consumables: Choosing an inkjet or laser printer determines whether you need to buy cartridges or drums in the future, and whether to buy compatible or original. There are many products that are compatible with brand names and are of the same quality as the original ones.
