Get to Know These Tips Before Investing in a Printer

Office Printer

Astragraphia Document Solution - Printers are still a product that is needed in company operations. Investing in a printer should certainly suit your needs and this can sometimes be a confusing process, given the number of printers on the market and it is difficult to compare. Astragraphia Document Solution will help you to find the most ideal multifunction printer for office needs.

1. Image quality

 Resolution - Most printers have many resolution modes, so be sure to find one that has multiple capabilities in terms of print resolution (an example is 360dpi-2880dpi). For photography needs, you need a printer capable of producing a print resolution of at least 1200dpi.

• Color Gamut - Some newer printers have increased the ink set thus expanding the printing gamut you can print on. Gamut comparisons are sometimes included in printer brochures or informational kits, so check the downloads available on the manufacturer's site. When you adjust the screen in Soft-Proof view, you can see what colors the printer can accurately reproduce without changing colors.

• Density - The density of the ink translates into rich, deep, and bright colors. Different ink sets can achieve higher or lower ink densities.

• Ink Droplet Size - Droplet size is usually measured in picoliters, so look for a printer that can produce about 4-12pl of droplets. Lower numbers mean smaller droplets, and smaller droplets produce a sharper image.

• Ink Configuration - The printer has a variety of ink configurations which typically range from 4 colors, 6, 8, and 12 color engines. In general, the more colors a printer has, the wider the range of color gamut it can achieve.

2. Size & Speed

Find out what print size people need the most, that's what can guide you on which machine can accommodate these printing needs. Larger printers can usually handle longer, heavier media. Speed ​​is an important aspect that should not be ignored. A faster print speed usually means a decrease in image resolution, so find a printer that can reach the faster speed while maintaining the resolution.

3. Media Handling

Recent printer products have the capability to print on a variety of print media, while some printers may be more suitable for photography. Astragraphia Document Solution markets a laser printer machine with the capability of printing on a variety of special laser and grammature print media, ranging from 60 gsm to 220 gsm.

4. Ease of Use

The features and specifications of printer products on the market sometimes make us forget the importance of the use of the printer itself. Here are some questions that can help you before you decide to buy a printer:

• Is it easy to unload and load print media?

• Is the printer control panel easy to understand?

• Is the printer driver easy to set up and use?

• Is it easy enough to show others how to use it?

• Can you save customized settings and details?

5. After-sales Service and Support
