Cartridge World Reveals the Top 10 Printers for SOHO

Cartridge World Reveals the Top 10 Printers for SOHOWith a global pandemic forcing millions to work from home, Cartridge World USA has assisted many thousands of people and business cost-effectively print from home after having to abandon the aircraft carrier-sized copier that is on floor three of a building in which they are no longer working.

During the year, Cartridge World USA came out with what we call the No Cost Printer Program where we loaned printers for FREE to businesses, along with all future routine maintenance and parts also for FREE, all the time they use our ink or toner supplies. We take into consideration the customer’s needs, brand, price and durability, but more importantly, we look at the Cartridge World Cost Per Page (CWCPP).

Big box stores sell thousands of SKUs and a tiny portion of them are printers and the ones they sell are just models being pushed to them by brands like HP and Canon. They know very little about how the actual printer operates and more importantly, they never educate the customer on the cost of ownership, particularly when it comes to replacing the cartridges.

At Cartridge World USA, we know printers, as we are the printer people. We take into consideration the cost of the printer and cost per page, which means your cost of ownership for the life of the printer will be less.

In this article, Sid Norwitz, a Cartridge World Veteran and President of Cartridge World Rhode Island and the number two store in the U.S. shares his top ten printers for the SOHO (Small Office Home Office).
