Complete guide to printer rental

The power to print brochures, photography or event tickets is still so vital for many modern businesses – and today’s high-spec machines are extremely versatile, offering high-resolution printing for a huge range of applications (including 3D printing).

But if you only need a printer for a short-term project or event, investing in a whole new machine is far from cost efficient. And, if you want to avoid the markup and time involved in using printing shops, printer rental is the way forward.

What kinds of features, specs and scenarios should you consider if you’ve decided to hire a printer?

What are your printer rental requirements?

Before you hire a printer, it’s a smart idea to list out the things that you want to use the printer for. These might include:

  • Printing tickets, floor plans and attendee guides at an event

  • Printing professional-standard photos

  • Printing large documents, such as A3 presentation posters

  • Producing high-resolution, richly coloured brochures, flyers and booklets

  • Using the printer for frequent copy editing and proofreading

  • Producing large numbers of documents (over 1000 runs, for instance)

  • Scanning and photocopying

  • 3D printing

If you are just making short runs of prints (some event tickets or a floor plan, for instance), an inkjet printer will often do the job fine. However, for larger projects, laserjet printers are often the best option (e.g., producing 5,000 event booklets). Naturally, if you need to do 3D printing, a 3D printer rental will be required.

Do you need a single function or multifunction?

When you come to hire a printer, you can choose between either single function or multifunction options:

  • Single function: As the name suggests, this kind of printer will ‘just’ print onto paper. If this is all you need, there’s little need to choose something more expensive.

  • Multifunction: A multifunction printer offers many additional tools, including photocopier , scanner and other options.

Colour, paper size, size of printer

When choosing a printer, assess whether you’ll need to print in colour, whether you need to print on paper larger than standard A4. Also consider the space you’ll put the printer in. Some of the larger Multifunction printers are far too heavy to put on desks, and not easy to move into a temporary location.

Think about connectivity

Last, but not least, you want to make sure that it is easy to connect the printer to your current IT systems. Speak to one of our friendly printer rental customer service staff who can recommend the right printer for your system and ensure it connects over your WiFi, Bluetooth, or via a cable to your computer.
