Our advice

If you own a small business and print less than 200-300 pages per month, it may be worthwhile checking out our all-you-can-eat printer & ink deals. Our A3 Printer deal also offers fantastic value, especially with its extra large black cartridge that prints 2,600 pages.

If on the other hand, your business is printing 500+ pages per month, many of which are high quality documents for presentations or reports, you should consider upgrading to a laser printer. Please contact us and we will take note of all your requirements and come back to you with a number of options. We have partnerships with all the major manufacturers and can offer excellent deals on most makes and models of laser printers and photocopiers. As a starting point, why not take a look at our “comprehensive list of considerations (link to pdf)” and then give us a call or drop us a mail to discuss. Contact details are here.
