This article discusses the best types of printers to use for non-commercial purposes. Inkjet printers are best used for photographs and documents as they produce high quality prints with a high level of detail. Laser printers are faster and more cost efficient for large print runs, but are not suitable for photographs. All-in-one printers are an ideal choice if you need to print, scan and copy documents. Finally, 3D printers are becoming increasingly popular for printing items such as toys, models and prototypes.
