Inkjet printers have been around for many decades and are fixtures in offices around the world. Because these machines have been around for so long, certain negative misunderstandings have cropped up around them. But modern inkjet printers and multi-function devices are just as reliable as any other printing methods, and they integrate efficiently into any office’s daily routine. Below are three common misconceptions about office inkjet printers.
3 Inkjet Printer Myths
1. You Can Only Print From Your Desktop
With modern inkjet printers and multi-function devices, you no longer need to have your office computer up and running to print a document. Modern printers can connect to personal devices such as smartphones and tablets. This makes them a perfect fit for the “bring your own device” movement occurring within businesses right now, allowing employees to use personally owned devices at work along with those supplied by their company.
2. Inkjet Printers Produce Low-Quality Printouts
Because inkjet printers were around before laser printers, we sometimes think of them as being the more outdated option when it comes to office printing. When laser printers first emerged, they originally offer higher quality printing than the inkjet printers that were around at the time. However, inkjet technology has now caught up with laser printers to the point where most options are as good as — or better than — laser printers. Documents prepared for other types of printers generally don’t need any adjustments to be printed with modern inkjet printers.
3. Inkjet Printers Aren’t Necessary for Modern Offices
It’s true that many offices are going paperless, and a lot of content is now shared electronically. However, there are plenty of situations that require paper documents are still needed. For instance, printing out handouts on one of your office's color copiers before a presentation or important meeting can save you both embarrassment and time if your office’s Wi-Fi goes down or if your projector isn’t working. Important documents such as contracts are also still printed so that a hard copy can remain on file.
