The “InkjetSelector” PDF from “301 Inkjet Tips” available free for download
One of the questions I am often asked is “Which printer should I buy?” and my usual reply is “The printer that’s right for you.” I then ask a series of questions and within a few minutes I can generally give them some appropriate options.
Chapter 3 of “301 Inkjet Tips and Techniques” is entitled, “Choosing an Inkjet Printer,” and to help others make this important decision, I created the “InkjetSelector” checklist. This checklist contains the questions I generally ask, plus many more. You may find it useful just to get a sense of the many features that are available today on modern inkjet printers.
This is the introductory text for the InkjetSelector checklist as it is listed in the book, followed by a link to download the three page, 70 point checklist.
TIP 40 Fill out the InkjetSelector checklist.
Choosing an inkjet printer (or printers) is kind of like choosing a car. Many models will do the job, but only a select few will meet most of your requirements. To get started, on the following pages is the super-powerful InkjetSelector, a form I created with 70 parameters to help you choose your ideal printer. Feel free to copy the form (for your own use only of course), then fill it out, bring it to a store that sells inkjet printers, or send it to a reseller or consultant who knows a lot about inkjet printers and who can give you advice. Now sharpen your pencils and happy searching!
