As the majority of workers in the UK are now working from home, many are trying to find a printer that best supports their job role. Here at Printernet, we have put together a list of printers to help narrow down what you are trying to find.
Printers for Teachers
Although some teachers are still teaching children who are vulnerable or have parents who work for the NHS, many have had to quickly adapt and run classes online.
Teachers are still required to mark homework and other assessments from their students, which means printing, scanning & photocopying are essential. An all-in-one multifunctional printer has all of these functions and can be cheaper than purchasing the machines separately.
The Brother MFC-L2710DN all-in-one laser printer is more than capable of meeting all of the basic requirements a teacher needs to do their job from home.
The networked printer comes with a host of cost-saving elements, including, automatic 2-sided printing, and scanning and high yield toner cartridges to reduce the cost of each print job. This Brother printer also provides print speeds of up to 30 pages per minute, and a 50 sheet automatic document feeder, enabling you to copy and email multi-page documents.
If you are looking for a multifunctional printer that also prints in colour, the Canon PIXMA TS8350 is an excellent choice for using if you are working from home. The printer is very easy to operate with an auto-tilting touch screen and the ability to connect to smart devices such as phones and tablets.
Printers for Students
For some college and university students, courses are still running online and still require work to be handed in. The printer of their choice depends on what course they are taking, so we have put this into two categories:
Students who take creative courses are looking for three features in a printer:
- Print Quality
The Canon PIXMA TS5150 has all of these features including multifunctional uses such as scanning and copying.
What also makes this printer so popular for students is that you can easily print from wireless devices such as smartphones and tablets via the Canon PRINT app.
Non Creative Students
Students who are taking core subjects such as English or Maths will be looking for a printer which is compact and multifunctional, but not particularly concerned about the quality.
The Canon PIXMA TS705 is one of the most popular choices, as it provides many features at just over £50:
- Seamless wireless connectivity with Ethernet compatibility
- Large 350-sheet plain paper capacity for high-volume printing
- Remote monitoring of ink and usage via Management Information Base (MIB)
- Creative apps and media for limitless personalisation
Printers for HR & Financial Professionals
When it comes to printing, Human Resources and finance/accounts is one of the busiest departments in a business. They have many time-consuming tasks to complete, which involves scanning, copying and printing.
There are many multi-functional printers available, which can provide all of these features (All-in-One). The Brother MFC-L3730CDN for example, not only has multi-functionality but also includes:
- Large paper capacity of 250 sheets
- Wired connectivity
- Easy to use 9.3cm colour touchscreen display
- Fast print speeds of 18 pages per minute (ppm)
- Automatic 2-sided printing
- Network connectivity from mobile and tablet devices
Printers for Artists & Graphic Designers
Digital Artists and Graphic Designers alike are always looking for one thing when it comes to printing: quality. With high spec printers producing high-quality material in the office, can it be replicated in a printer for home usage?
The Epson Expression series is dedicated to creating high-quality prints in a compact size. The Epson EcoTank ET-7750, for example, has a unique 5-colour ink system which can print up to 3,4000 photos that can “last up to 300 years in a photo album”.
Other printers we would recommend for artists and graphic designers include:
