Know About Laser Printers And Inkjet Printers

When choosing a printer the first choice will be whether to buy a laser printer or an inkjet printer. The following summarize the main advantages and disadvantages of inkjet and laser printers.

Inkjet Printers

Inkjet printers work by propelling droplets of ink onto the paper. The ink is released from small removable cartridges and if it is a color inkjet printer there will normally be a black cartridge and three different coloured cartridges.

You can either replace the whole cartridge or refill the cartridges with a special refill kit. For the best printing services, you must buy Imaje compatible products.

Advantages

Inkjet printers are considerably cheaper to buy.

High end printers are capable of producing good quality images when used with special paper.

Most models are relatively light weight and compact so they don't take up too much space on the desk.

Disadvantages

Due to the cost of ink, running an inkjet printer over time is a more expensive than a laser printer.

Prints emerge from the printer slightly wet and may need time to dry.

Printing is slower and therefore inkjets aren't designed for high volume printing.

Laser Printers

This printer incorporates a laser beam as a part of the image processing. Rather than using ink a laser printer uses toner, a dry plastic powder combined with carbon black or colouring agents. The consumable a part of the printer is encased in a cartridge which needs to be replaced from time to time.
