Documents in the hard copy form are an inexplicable part of human’s everyday life, and thanks to printing, one can get the words and images onto sheets of paper in a jiffy. The earliest record of printing points towards a Chinese book called “Diamond Sutra” printed in 868 CE. The modern printing was invented in the U.S in 1938 by Chester Carlson. It was called electrophotography, commonly known as Xerox. The first high speed printer was developed by Remington-Rand in 1953.
Carlson’s electrophotography became the basis for the development of laser printers when the Xerox Palo Alto Research Center began developing the first laser printer, called EARS, in 1969 and completed it in 1971. The printers as we know them today first came to light only in 1988, the release date of Hewlett-Packard’s Deskjet when it became available for use in homes. It was invented in 1976. In 1992, Hewlett-Packard released the popular LaserJet 4, which was the first 600-by-600 dots per inch resolution printer.
Canon is another name that has established its name in the world of printing devices. When you compare the two top brands, HP and Canon, the latter proves more cost-effective, as the Canon printers ink cartridges, in some models, are less expensive as compared to other top brands. The fact is that the cost of an inkjet printer is not the major cause here but when it comes to the cost of a cartridge replacement, it can sometimes exceed the cost of the machine itself. The high cost is usually due to the fact that the primary cost of producing high-quality ink is quite high, and it is important to maintain its quality as over a period of time a printer starts to print blurred or smudged prints which is a cause of worry. What differentiates a good printer from a poor one is based on several factors and the important one of those is the quality of the ink, print quantity, printing speed and the print quality.
Another thing to keep in mind is to focus on buying dedicated printer cartridge. For instance, if you own a Canon inkjet printer, it is imperative to use specifically made ink for Canon printer as these are developed carefully, keeping in mind the quality and type of heads used in the inkjet printers so that the printers can use their optimum potential while producing prints. Several online stores offer specifically developed ink cartridges for several brands of printers, and it will be useful to do the research online before you invest in it.
