As we enter the holiday season, you may find that you’re needing to utilize a printer more often. Whether it’s for printing out recipes at home or paperwork for your small business, there is more than likely a use for a printer on your desk to make tasks easier.

Printers are a must-have for their different sizes and functions, along with many eco-friendly options. With more than 120 million Mopria Certified printers, this article will help you to discover the best printer to suit your needs.

Printers at Home 

If you’re looking for a printer for your home, you’ll likely be searching for one that the whole family can use. This might be for homework, documents, photos, or recipes – whatever is best to print off as opposed to living on your phone or computer. Consider what features you’ll need – do you want to have scan features? Are you looking for specific ways to connect? Will you be printing mostly in color, or black & white? Is eco-friendliness or budget a concern for you? Once you’ve figured out what you need, you can take a quiz, like this one from Brother, or simply filter by the features you need, as seen on Epson’s website. Regardless, you will probably want to go with an all-in-one printer that does it all for an affordable price.

Printers for Small Businesses

For a small business, whether in an office or at home, there may be a variety of needs that you need to meet. This could involve printing paperwork, flyers, presentations, documents, or scanning in agreements. Since multiple employees will need to use the device every day, getting one that can handle larger workloads without running out of ink too quickly is important. It should be able to connect easily to devices, and print/scan efficiently. Konica Minolta offers a variety of solutions, whatever the size of your business. If you have a somewhat larger business, you can also look to Kyocera for some great options.

Printers Do Double Duty

Whatever use you have for a printer, you can certainly find one that will work well for both family use and business use. Be sure to research what you need, how printers are rated, and look for deals – especially with the holidays on the horizon. If you know someone who just moved into a new home, is starting a business, or is moving to college, a printer can make a great gift.

For whatever printing and scanning needs that your home and/or office requires, Mopria is right by your side with the Mopria Print and Scan Service Apps. To discover and try out the different functionalities of these apps, head over to Google Play or download them directly from the Mopria website.
