Multifunction printers (MFPs) are large-size commercial printers used in small to medium-sized businesses. They differ from normal printers as they fulfill multiple purposes. Multifunction printers, also called all-in-one copy machines, have built-in printer, scanner, fax machine, and photocopier functions. Advanced versions of multifunction printers offer added features of email, internet browsing, and a built-in terminal.

Advantages of MFPs

  • MFPs can print up to 100 pages per minute, which means thousands of pages can be printed within an hour.
  • MFPs print premium-quality high-resolution images in both monochrome and color.
  • Scanning and photocopying are just a click away.
  • Some advanced MFPs have a built-in terminal, which means images can be edited on the printer before printing.

Here are some common types of multifunction printers available in the market:

Monochrome Multifunction Printers

Monochrome multifunction printers come in two varieties: inkjet or laser. As the name suggests, monochrome MFPs can only use one color, that is, black. This means that the printer can print in black and white only (the printer will not print pixels in white color).

Since only a single color has to be printed, such printers take lesser time to process images and text, which makes them the most efficient among all types of multifunction printers. Another great advantage of these printers is that the toner for laser monochrome or the black cartridges for inkjet printers are relatively less expensive and easier to refill than color printers.

Color Multifunction Printers

Color MFPs also come in two variations – inkjet and laser. Color MFPs use tri-color cartridges, and some of them can use both black and tri-color.

Color MFPs can produce high-resolution color prints at high speed. Color MFPs can meet all in-house printing requirements of small to medium-sized businesses and have the flexibility to produce high-quality printouts on a variety of mediums. With colored MFPs, it’s easy to create flyers, brochures, promotional letters, marketing material, etc.

The print speed of color MFPs is almost the same as monochrome. Businesses who mostly print text-based documents may find it a little more expensive as it takes a mix of all three basic colors to produce a black and white printout.

Compact Multifunction Printers for Home or Small-Sized Businesses

Compact printers have almost the same features as full-sized MFPs, but with smaller size and paper storage capacity. They are the best printers for small businesses and domestic use. Compact MFPs come in a range of monochrome, color, or a combination of both.
