Laser Printers

Laser printers are the workhorse of the modern office thanks to high-volume output over extended periods. Using toner instead of ink to achieve the fastest printing speeds without sacrificing clarity, laser printers are a must for busy office environments. They're also great for home users who telecommute or print frequently for personal reasons. Let London Drugs help you choose the best laser printer for your printing needs.

Faster & Sharper: Laser Printers vs. Inkjet Printers

Laser printers and inkjet printers are the major options on today's market, and they specialize in different things. Laser printers deliver large volumes of work quickly for less overall expense, and they're particularly good for producing sharp, clear black-and-white text. If you need to deliver fine lines and small fonts in a project that's high-volume and not otherwise graphically complicated, a laser printer is the obvious choice.

Inkjet printers are best for low-volume printing that uses different kinds of printer paper or is heavy on the use of graphics. Ink is expensive but also refillable, and blends colours better than toner. On the other hand, inkjets are still significantly slower than laser printers and have trouble handling high-volume jobs.

Things to Think About Before You Buy Your Laser Printer

If you've decided a laser printer is your best option, there's still a wide variety of products and features to consider before you purchase. Things to consider as you find the printer that's right for you:

  • Basic or multifunction: Basic units offer only printing capabilities while multifunction printers can also include copying, scanning and faxing.
  • Black-and-white or colour: Although black-and-white units are more prevalent, colour laser printers are also available and produce equally crisp work.
  • Network/connection: A majority of modern laser printers offer Wi-Fi connectivity so print jobs can run over a network, even from a distant location. Ethernet connections allow network printing when wireless is unavailable. Most models also include USB connectivity.
  • Resolution: Although older laser printers didn't print at as high a resolution as inkjet printers, modern laser devices offer nearly as high-resolution printouts.
  • Printing Speeds: The printing speeds available through laser printing are far higher than inkjets and become even faster with high-end models.
  • Paper Handling: Laser devices are often much larger than inkjets, providing large-capacity paper drawers and printout trays or multiple input and output paper sources for business printing needs. Because laser devices may rely on heated elements during the printing process, paper stock (from regular office paper to cardstock and labels) should not have any type of coating that could burn or melt.
