What type of industrial or laser printer will work best for me?
I want to transfer J Pegs from my pc and make a portrait style product. Pixels vary from small to 2,000 plus, so maximum size to quality is important. I want to display finished products that are not the standard matting/framing fare. Original colors and/or design to the piece as much as possible. Results are open: standard, canvas, engraved tracing, acrylic sheets, wood, laminates, etc.
It appears an industrial printer is what I need but others look so attractive, so I prevail upon you to put me on the right path.
Deciding which kind of printer is better for home office use depends on your needs. Here’s some information about both that should help you in your decision.
Laser printers use a powder filled toner cartridge and a fuser unit that bonds the toner to the paper. Because these printers use a fine powder rather than ink, those dreaded messy spills are not an issue. Laser printers are great for printing high quality text documents at a noticeably faster pace when compared to an inkjet printer.
Laser printers do have a higher initial cost (on both the actual printer and toner cartridges), which can discourage buyers. However, they do have a lower cost per page. For those looking to print a high volume of documents, the laser printer would pay off in the long run.
