Sure, office equipment makers release better and faster colour printers every year. But the best monochrome printers are not going out of production for one simple reason: Not all companies need to print in colour.
If you rarely print marketing and communication materials, a black and white printer can boost your office productivity and reduce your monthly printing costs.
Monochrome printers are faster and deliver cleaner text at a much lower cost per page than most full-colour printers. The characters they produce look more professional and have crisper edges, thanks to the toner fusing to the top of the paper.
They’re an excellent choice if your printing jobs mostly consist of black and white business documents, invoices and purchase orders, meeting agendas, and the like.
If you’re looking for a new mono printer for your office, you need to look into and weigh up a few important features in your purchase.
To start, you need to choose between an inkjet and laser monochrome printer. The best black and white printers run on laser technology, outperforming models from the inkjet category. Using laser brings faster performance, higher page yields, and better print quality.
Inkjets, on the other hand, are often easier on your budget. But quality can be a major issue among inkjet printers as the paper absorbs the ink, leading to softer edges and even blots or streaks.
Next on the list are the number of pages printed per minute and the duty cycle.
You don’t want the printer to hinder the workplace productivity, so look for a model that can finish print jobs fast enough. Most home printers can deliver up to 20 pages per minute. A sizable office, however, needs a faster machine. So go for a business-class unit instead as these machines can print 50 to 70 pages per minute.
The duty cycle, on the other hand, is the number of pages a monochrome printer can print in a month without breaking down.
A printer may have a decent PPM. But if the machine has a low duty cycle, it may crash in the face of the heavy workload common in shared office printers. You need to audit your monthly printing to know how much duty cycle is high enough and adjust your machine choice accordingly.
And last but not the least:
See if you can save more by getting a multifunction mono printer.
These black and white printers don’t just print. They also double as scanners, fax machines, and copiers. If you need the machines mentioned in your business, too, getting an all-in-one model may cut your costs and conserve precious office space.
