Wednesday, February 27th, 2013

Starting a new business or expanding an existing one can be a daunting task. There are a million things that one needs to keep in mind, from moving in to budgeting to planning, numerous things need to be taken care of. It is very easy to forget about the most basic and essential equipment that any business will need: office supplies. With thousands of products and models to choose from, it can be quite difficult, especially for first timers to purchase the most suitable ones for their business. 
Some of the most basic equipment which any office needs apart from the basic desktop computer and a telephone are scanners, printers, fax machines, shredders etc. Whether you run a bakery, a fashion house or an online retail business, these basic essentials will be needed on a day to day basis. However, each business will have different practices and thus different requirements. The following information will help you purchase the right photocopiers, scanners and printers for your business:

Laser Printer

From choosing regular printers to photo printers, laser to inkjet ones, there are plenty of options available. If you run a small business which does require printing on a regular basis, then you can invest in a basic inkjet printer. Some of the best ones in the market include the HP DeskJet 1000, HP Office Jet 6100 ePrinter and the HP OfficeJet Pro 8100 ePrinters. However, if your business requires photocopies and prints on a large scale, then it is more suitable to purchase a professional printer. The HP LaserJet Pro M1212nf Multifunction printer is the ultimate answer. It can print, scan, copy, and fax all in one place. It is well equipped to take care of all the printing needs in any office. With its Airprint option, you can print copies wirelessly from anywhere in the world. And if your business requires photo prints, then the HP DesignJet series are the most suitable photo printers available.


Any office, no matter how small or large, requires scanning services, particularly for record keeping. You may need to scan customer invoices, payment slips, receipts, utility bills and many other documents. There are many choices available when it comes to scanning, from sophisticated options like HP Scanjet N6350 with a speed of 15 ppm and the ability to share it with multiple users, to the more standard options like HP Scanjet G3110 and HP Scanjet G2410 which are ideal for basic scanning needs.


One of the most sought after solutions available for office printing needs are the all-in-ones, with functions including printing, scanning, photocopying and faxing, all available in one device. There are standard options available too, which are economically sound and best suited for small business printing needs, like the HP Officejet 4620 e-All-in-One Printer which offers wireless as well as AirPrint options. There are more well-integrated options available too for businesses requiring large scale printing, faxing and photocopying needs. The most suitable options available for large scale printing include the HP LaserJet Pro 300 and the HP LaserJet Enterprise 500 MFP M5525f which has a speed of up to 42 ppm and features like preview, edit and zoom options prior to scanning on its 8-inch touch screen.

Cartridge Colors
Papers and Accessories

Although printers and scanners are basic office equipment that you will need to purchase, there are many other supplies that your office will need on a regular basis, which include the toners and cartridges for your printer. You will also need to purchase the right paper for different needs. For instance, you can purchase HP Recycled Paper for an eco-friendly option or HP Advanced Glossy Photo Paper for photo prints or simply the HP Multipurpose Paper for all basic printing needs. You will also need accessories like external drives, USB ports, headphones, Cleaning Cartridges, cables, different software etc. You can easily purchase all these things from any HP franchise or simply via their official website and get them delivered to your office without any hassle.

HPRunning a business is not an easy task; however, with the help of the right equipment, it can become very convenient and hassle-free. Simply make a list of the things that you will need printing, scanning and photocopying equipment for, and just choose the one which best meets those needs.
