The Real Cost of Your Printer

Dec 10, 2018 9:37:00 AM by Valley Office Systems

Buying a printer can be difficult, we know that. What's important is buying the right printer for your needs, and that requires a lot of thinking. What projects are you using it for? How often are you using it? Can you afford it? Can you afford the ink? One of those questions is left as an afterthought for most people, but in your printer's lifetime, it can be the most important question you ask. 

Can you afford the ink?

Printer ink is one of the most expensive liquids you can buy, with some cartridges coming in as little as .45 ounces, and costing up to $42. If that wasn't bad enough, many printers only sell color ink (cyan, maroon, and yellow) as a single cartridge, meaning you could shell out some serious dough just because you made some yellow fliers. We know it's a difficult choice, and we've been tossing some harsh realities of printer ownership at you, but it's not all bad. With a quality printer you can be printing cheaper, better photos, documents, even yellow fliers, all without the hassle. Meet the Canon Pixma MG6820.

Yeah, we know, it's an awful lot of words just for the big reveal, but we think it's worth it. The Canon Pixma MG6820 is something that can accommodate all your at-home printing needs with ease. First and foremost, the ink is affordable. Coming in at around $6 for one color cartridge at the cheapest. You can't beat that. Secondly, color cartridges for Canon Pixma printers are sold individually. No more will you have to put down $35-$50 for a whole new three pack just because you ran out of magenta.

Beyond the low cost of ink and the printer itself, the Pixma MG6820 has some pretty unique features up its sleeve, like the ability to print Facebook and Instagram photos directly from your smartphone or tablet. Beyond that, wireless functionality lets you ditch the cords, and a 3-inch touchscreen makes navigating menus a breeze. The Canon Pixma MG6820 is a versatile at-home printer that'll save you money every time you print. Check it out in our online catalog, and contact us if you ever need assistance.
