Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between a printer and a copier?

While printers and copiers do have similar functions, they are indeed different. Most public places such as libraries, cafes, and print shops will have both printers and copies available. They have different functions, and to find out which one is best for your needs, keep on reading.

What is a Printer?

A printer is a machine used to “print” documents and images, usually from an online source and through a computer. Printers can make physical copies or tangible printouts of almost anything that can be found on your computer, smartphone, or electronic devices such as I-Pads. You do not need a physical copy of an item in order to print it. As long as it is a file on your device, you can print it.

What is a Copier?

A copier is a machine that makes copies. However, unlike printers that can also make copies, a copier can only make copies of a tangible item. You cannot use a copier to “print” out files online because that file only exists in your computer or smart device. If you cannot touch that file, then you will not be using a copier.

How does a multifunction printer work?

As the name implies, a multifunction printer is a printer that has multiple functions. A multifunction printer, sometimes called "MFPs" for short, is a printer, copier, and scanner all in one. So a multifunction printer can print, scan, fax, and photocopy your documents.

Which brand of photocopier is the best?

There are many different photocopier brands on the market but what is considered the best, depends on what you are looking for. Brother makes affordable copiers. Sharp makes copiers that are great for small businesses. Ricoh makes copiers for large corporations. Other popular high quality brands include Konica Minolta, Cannon, and Xerox.
