I have been at now been working at BrandPost for over 20 years (I started when I was 16), over this time I have learnt a lot about the Ink and Toner industry and I want to share some of my knowledge about printing costs with you.
I talk to customers everyday about the best printer to buy and over 90% of the time it narrows down to the same four printers.
As you probably know there is no profit in selling a printer. Therefore I don't mind where you buy your next one, however, I do care what printer you buy. Some are unbelievably expensive to run. As a general rule the cheaper the printer the more expensive the cartridges, meaning the costs per page will be much higher.
At BrandPost we sell a lot of printers but we primarily sell a select range of models, ie the ones that are the cheapest to run. Here is a quick breakdown of the key printers for each category and why our customers buy them.
Brother MFC-J480DW Inkjet Multifunction
An ideal low cost machine for people who want colour printing and the ability to print, scan & copy. This multifunction printer is one of the cheapest to run on the market and our top selling printer. I also have one of these on my desk and use it everyday for scanning and printing.
Brother MFC-J5330DW Inkjet Multifunction
Ideal printer for small & medium sized businesses who want a higher volume of printing and multifunction capabilities. When you combine this printer with InkPost brand inks you won't finder a cheaper printer to run. Cheaper to run than a colour laser printer.
Brother HL-L2365DW Mono Laser
If you're not worried about colour and you want cheap printing then this machine is for you. A nice, simple black and white laser printer that will print all day and last for a long time. We sell a lot of these to customers who are tired of replacing colour cartridges when they only print black (yes your printer does use colour ink when printing black).
Brother MFC-L2700DW Mono Laser Multifunction
Same printer as the one above but in a multi-function version. Print, scan, copy & fax. This printer is like a mini photocopier with all the functions for a business or home at low running costs.
I hope you found some of this information interesting and helpful. I am always available to talk to you personally. Feel free to give myself or my team a call if you would like more information.
