It’s 2017. With all the latest technology and gadgets we have now, you might be wondering: “Do I still need a home printer?” Why yes you still do! Having your own home printer has a lot of perks. If you can’t find a reason to have one, perhaps, this list can help you out.
- Save Time and Money
When you have your own printer, you can print your documents any time. Printing at home is not limited to documents. You can also print calendars, images, paper pads, stationary, stickers, and a whole lot more.
How much money do you spend having your images printed out? Sure. Not a lot.
How about the money you spent on business cards, documents, etc? Still, not a lot.
But if you will total how much money you spend printing over the years, you’ll realize how much money you can save when you print your stuff at home.
- Accessibility and Convenience
Imagine this. You have a specific deadline for tomorrow. It’s already 1 am. You can’t go to your office and there’s no printing shop open. You’re stuck. That won’t happen if you have your own home printer.
Save the document. Print out. Get enough rest. That’s it. Easy Peasy.
- Yes to Hard Copy!
With all these new gadgets, who needs paper? Right?
We all do! We still do.
Even in offices where computers and tablets are most helpful, they still use papers for contracts and important documents.
A study also showed that students who read books and printed out materials tend to be more effective in studying than those who study in their laptops and gadgets.
Besides, don’t you love the smell of paper?
- Make your own printables
If you like having your own customized papers and printouts, then you should have your own printer at home.
You can make your own designs. Play around with different applications like PicMonkey and Canva.
In fact, you can create your own paper pads, home organizers, inserts, calendars, and much more.
Running out of design ideas? That’s what Pinterest is for! It has tons and tons of adorable FREE printables that you can use to organize your work, your life, and your home!
It may look complicated at first. But once you get a hang of your printer, it’s very easy to customize and print whatever you like.
Let’s take business cards for example.
We are so used to sending our business cards to commercial and professional printers. It’s definitely fine.
But, that doesn’t mean that printing your own, customized business cards can’t be an option.
In fact, if you know your way around graphic designs, you can design your own card.
Let’s not forget about those helpful websites and applications that will give you pre-set templates – size, design, colors, and everything else that you might need.
