Inkjet printers are the most popular form of printer on the market. Whether you are looking at home or office computers, inkjet printers offer a reliable and inexpensive means of printing high-quality images and text. There are some factors that you should consider when buying, including whether you choose a printer with a separate black ink cartridge or one that combines colours to make a fake black pigment. You should also decide which brand you want, considering the prices and availability of ink cartridges. Some of the most popular inkjet printers for sale at takelaot.com include Epson inkjet printers, HP inkjet printers, and Canon inkjet printers.
Cartridges And Colours
An inkjet printer may come with Cyan, Magenta, and Yellow (CMY) cartridges, combining these three to make a black colour when needed, while some also add a black cartridge and offer CMYK (K for Key). Those with a separate black cartridge are usually the better option if you intend on printing many text documents, or many monochrome images. The most advanced, and best quality printers are six colour printers, and include light magenta and light cyan as well.
An inkjet printer has a number of tiny heads that eject small amounts of ink onto the paper. Each pixel, or dot of ink, is smaller than the diameter of a human hair, which gives this type of a printer the capacity to print high resolution images. As such, inkjet printers are popular as photo printers, but general or all-purpose printers are also available that utilise inkjet technology.
Features To Consider
There are many features to consider when shopping for printers. Print speed will be important if you often have extensive print jobs, while higher resolution printers provide better looking photo reproduction. You may also consider other printers, such as Ricoh inkjet printers, which have memory card slots and will take microSD and other memory cards without the need to upload images to a computer.

The photo printer is a specialist form of printer that is commonly used by professional photographers, or keen amateurs. These are dedicated and near-dedicated printers designed solely for the purpose of printing high-quality images. At takealot.com we have a wide range of photo printers for sale, including those that can offer a wider and more expansive range of printing options, over and above the ability to create print picture sized images.
Dedicated photographic printers typically only offer the ability to print in specific sizes – 2” x 3”, 4” x 6”, or 5” x 7” and rather than being considered a computer printer, they can often be used from digital cameras and mobile devices directly, without the need to connect to a computer. This type of printer can prove expensive, but the quality images it produces makes it a worthwhile investment.
Many devices, including popular Canon photo printers, can offer additional functionality such as the ability to print other documents and other document sizes. These are considered multi-functional printers and will be the printer of choice for most home users as well as some keen amateur photographers. Such printers can be priced very competitively and still offer a good level of printing quality.
