What type of printing do you do? This is perhaps the most important question to ask since it will point you towards a specific printer technology – that is Inkjet printer vs Laser Printer.

Laser printers can offer decent quality colour prints suitable for general purpose colour printing such as printing PowerPoint slides. Do you need a color printer? If you only print text, faxes or anything that doesn’t really require colour, we would generally recommend you look into a laser printer.  Laser toner cartridges generally achieve three or more […]

Ink and Toner News: Major Printer Brands Join EPEAT’s Registry to Showcase Greener Electronics

Top printer manufacturers like Epson, Canon, Xerox, Dell, Lexmark and Ricoh have recently added their printers and copiers to EPEAT’s green electronics registry. Samsung, Hewlett-Packard and Konica Minolta are not far behind and are in the process of getting their products registered as well. If you haven’t heard of EPEAT, here’s a quick overview: Launched in the year 2006, EPEAT is a registry that includes products from more than 50 manufacturers all across the globe. The company is spearheaded as a partnership between various sectors including businesses, NGOs, other stakeholders and also has some government intervention. Many consumers are now getting increasingly aware of what products they put their money into. Manufacturers who deliver green products that are free from toxic materials are sure to get a thumbs up by consumers, and companies are more than likely going to see a boost in their sales numbers as well. With EPEAT recently opening up its registry to include more than just computers, and have imaging equipment like printers, copiers, scanners and all-in-one machines that pass environmental tests on its registry, manufacturers didn’t take long to join in. And the criteria for getting added to the registry isn’t that simple as well […]

Lexmark: Saying Goodbye to Inkjet and Hello to Laser Printing

Lexmark made an announcement in late August this year that it would abandon inkjet printing technology and focus purely on laser printing. The decision comes with a 1700 employee layoff. So is inkjet technology dying or is this just a move by Lexmark? Well, if you look at other major printer manufacturers like HP, Epson , Canon and Brother they still continue to actively improve and develop inkjet technologies. Inkjet printing is definitely still in the market to stay and according to research done by Context, all-in-one inkjet printers account for 68.1% of the printing market. Most personal users and small businesses that need a colour printer still prefer to use inkjet as the recurring cost of coloured toner cartridges for laser printers can sky rocket the budget. Also, many users get their ink cartridges refilled – a practice discouraged in the case of laser toners but extremely cost-effective when it comes to ink. So why did Lexmark make the move to axe its inkjet division and focus solely on laser printing?
