When looking for a printer to use in your business, you should first consider a specification called the duty cycle.

This is the approximate number of prints the printer is designed to handle each month.

One point of confusion is that you want to buy a printer that has that amount of duty cycle for the number of pages you need to print each month.

Choose a printer that has a duty cycle that is several times the number of prints you do each month for your work. In addition to that, the speed of the “first page out” is also important. If you need to print on-demand, it’s good to be able to take into account how long it takes to print each page.
