In today’s fast-paced world, technology has made just about everything you need that much more accessible or affordable. Take printing, for example: you can now find a wide variety of corporate and independently owned printing services all over the country to help you with your personal or organization printing needs. Whether you run a small business or a church youth group, or you need to distribute flyers to the other parents of the PTA, these establishments make it so you don’t have to buy a home printer.
At the same time, though, if you find you are relying on these places quite a bit, it might be a good idea to, at the very least, consider buying a printer for your home or your small office. While singular expenditures at these printing services may be affordable, when you add up the cost, it is quite likely that you will find buying a printer for your home is far more valuable, especially if you take advantage of one of these best printer deals of last year.
SAMSUNG Wireless Monochrome
At $79, this is the most affordable machine on this list but it is limited. Still if you have only black and white print jobs (like a college or high school student, for example), this could be the one for you. Sure, you can find printers at a lower price point, but the quality of this machine—coupled with its commitment to a “workhorse” mentality—ensures you never waste toner (so you save money on ink, too).
HP Envy 4520
For just $89, this printer has a “borderless” option which lets you print text all the way out to the edge of the [standard 8.5” x 11”) page. With a built-in scanner this plug-and-play printer could be the most versatile for the price.
BROTHER Digital Color
$175 is a reasonable price for a fast, quality, reliable machine that automatically prints on standard or legal size sheets. You can also print in black and white or color on various other paper sizes, but you will have to feed the machine by hand.
EPSON Workforce WiFi Direct
Only a few dollars more than the BROTHER Digital Color printer ($179) this printer is the most versatile and the most reliable. It can handle all kinds of media and is capable of scanning, faxing, copying and, of course, printing. With high-quality photo printing, too, the Workforce definitely lives up to its name.
