The top 6 best office printers in 2021

Whether you’re a startup company looking to kit out your brand new office or you want to upgrade your current printing equipment, we’ve got you covered!

We understand it can be tricky choosing the perfect printer for your office, with so many options available. From Canon and Epson to Brother and HP, single function or digital multifunction, it can definitely be a minefield. Luckily, at Officeology we’re here to help and have rounded up 6 of the best office printers in 2021 for startups, small, medium and large businesses.

Best Office Printers for Startups

As a startup, it’s unlikely you’ll need a printer with all the bells and whistles. Something small, compact, flexible and affordable would be ideal.

1. Brother MFC-J805DW INKvestment Tank

Let’s face it, starting a business isn’t cheap and if you’re trying to stick to a budget but still need an all-in-one printer that will last you for years to come then the Brother MFC-J805DW INKvestment Tank is the perfect printer for you. With an impressively high page yield for both black and colour ink, the cost-per-print is actually very low, meaning you’ll get more for less.

This printer has a good range of wireless and wired connection options, so even if you move offices a few times this printer will be easy to set up and go. It also comes equipped with a high-resolution flatbed scanner and an automatic document feeder so it can process multi-page documents quickly and effectively. The only downside is that it can’t scan double-sided documents automatically so you’ll need to flip the pages over manually.

2. Canon Pixma iP110

If you’re always on the move and spend most of your working hours at home or in a coffee shop, a portable printer will be the best option for you. The Canon Pixma iP110 mobile printer measures at just 12.7 x 7.3 x 2.5 inches and weighs just over 4 pounds, making it perfect to slip into a laptop bag or backpack.

Small but mighty, this printer can produce up to 9 pages per minute in both colour and black and white and take up to 50 sheets in the feeder. With a built-in WI-FI, it doesn’t need to be plugged in for it to work but it does come with an AC wall adapter if needed as well as a battery pack for a total wireless operation.

Best Small and Medium Business Printers

If you have an established but small or medium-sized business you may find that your printing needs vary from team to team. So, ideally, you’ll need something reliable, hardworking and cost-effective.

3. HP LaserJet Pro MFP M227fdw

Small and medium-sized businesses can’t go wrong with the HP LaserJet Pro MFP M227fdw. This 4-in-1 laser printer, scanner, copier and fax machine can handle all of your business needs. With a large paper tray that can hold up to 250 sheets, two-sided printing supported and a notably fast printing speed, printing up to 30 pages per minute, you can be sure it won’t let you down.

It also comes with the latest connection technology, with WI-FI, NFC and USB connections available making it quick and simple to set up. You can also rely on this printer powering down into hibernation when it’s not being used to help save energy. Plus, the small LCD touchscreen offers an easy way to control and switch between modes. The only thing to bear in mind is that it’s not a compact design, so you’ll need to make sure there’s enough room for it in the office.

4. Epson EcoTank WorkForce ET-4750

Another excellent 4-in-1 printer choice that would be perfect if you prefer ink printing over laser printing is the Epson EcoTank WorkForce ET-4750. With a 250 sheet paper tray and an option for two-sided printing as well as multiple connectivity options including WI-FI and USB, this printer is business-ready and can handle all of your printing needs from photos to documents.

And, because it’s an EcoTank model, this printer is designed to use ink efficiently and uses refillable tanks rather than cartridges which can last up to 11,200 pages of colour printing and 14,000 pages of black and white printing, so you’re easily getting your money’s worth.

Best Printers for Large Businesses

5. Ricoh IM C5500A

Ricoh IM C5500A

The Ricoh IM C5500A can take care of projects in the office no matter how big or small they may be.

6. Brother MFC-L6800DW

If you’re wanting to go all out and invest in a high-end printer that can handle large amounts of work on a regular basis, the Brother MFC-L6800DW is one to consider. This all-in-one printer allows you to automatically scan, copy, fax and print double-sided documents in no time. In fact, it can print and copy in both colour and black and white up to 48 pages per minute.

The touchscreen lets you create multiple shortcuts for printing, scanning and copying and it has several options to ensure maximum security, so only authorised staff members will have access to the printer. But, the most impressive feature of this printer is its paper capacity. With a 570-sheet input tray that’s suitable for both letter and legal sized paper, you can also expand its capacity to a huge 1,610 sheets. And, with a maximum monthly duty cycle of 125,000 pages, you can be confident that this printer can handle anything you throw at it!
