How much does a printer really cost?

Beware of Low-Cost Residential Printers that will cost you up to 60%- 90% more on Toner and Ink. THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN COMMERCIAL-GRADE AND STORE BOUGHT PRINTERS is importnant for businesses.

It easy to fall victim to Cheap products advertised online by retailers and online stores such as Amazon, Staples, Office Depot and CDW , but the truth is these low-cost printers have NEVER been a practical business solution. The idea behind these low-cost printers is to charge pennies for a printer and then 5x more for ink and toner then the printer costs. The average cost for a black and white print is over 6 cents, and the average cost for a color print is over 20 cents. (Average cost on Commercial grade is less than a penny)

These online and in store purchased office equipment end up costing businesses significantly more, as recurring costs are increased 70-90%, and service is not included so your team will usually just throw out the printer and purchase a new one, most of time a different model. The other problem this brings along with beign wasteful is too many different supplies and ending up with obsolete toners! WASTEFUL!

Most businesses do not know how much they spend on print. A residential low cost printer costs a business $150.00-$1,000 per month (depending on the amount of color printing and number of employees), now let’s compare this to $35- $350 per month on commercial printers and solutions provided by Barlop. There is a large difference in the overall experience, cost reductions and efficiency of buying a store-bought printer versus buying from a local commercial grade company like Barlop.
