A Quick Guide to Buying Your Small Business Copier

A Quick Guide to Buying Your Small Business Copier | Copiers Plus

With so many choices in small business copiers on the market, trying to choose can feel overwhelming. However, when armed with a little information you can shop with confidence for your multifunction printers. Here’s a few things to keep in mind when you evaluate your potential choices for a digital copier.

Think About Your Print Volume

Printing, scanning, copying, and faxing are the bare minimums. Before browsing, you need to know how much printing you do in a month and on what sizes of paper, whether you need double-sided copies and whether you must print in color. Your volume dictates whether to buy a personal copier, or a low, middle, or high-range unit instead. Find each item’s pages per month duty cycle for a good indication of its capabilities.


Besides volume, think about what functions would best serve your office. Some things to consider include:

  • Speed: usually measured in pages per minute (ppm). Faster machines enhance productivity, but keep in mind that double-sided or collated jobs affect their ppm.
  • Paper trays: machines with larger tray capacities require less reloading.
  • Automatic document feeding: this automatically feeds a stack of originals into the machine. Higher volume offices benefit most from this feature.

The key to selecting a small business copier in Lafayette is evaluating what your office requires. Before you select multifunction copiers, think about key factors such as volume, speed, document feeding, and tray capacity. After all, your digital copier will be one of the critical supportive pieces to your operations.
