A copier creates copies of a physical document without connecting to a computer network. Printers, on the other hand, allow users to send documents from a computer network to print on the device.

  1. Each performs different functions
    While a standard copier can do one thing (make copies), a multi-function printer – sometimes called an MFP – is suitable naming. The multi-function printer is capable of securely copying, printing, scanning and faxing. Some devices even offer punching holes and pins. Older copiers may be capable of printing in color or only in black and white. With a multi-function machine, it is common for a single machine to handle both modes. Depending on the unit, both may be capable of producing high-quality media when desired.

2. Copiers slightly faster than printers
Copiers sometimes print faster than multi-function printers, although it may be hard to tell the difference on short print runs. If you’re copying a thousand copies of documents, a copier can surpass a multifunction device in speed. But for most people who need a small number of copies or even a few dozen when printing, the lag time is negligible.

3. Both can be user-friendly
When released, some MFPs were cumbersome and unwieldy when switching between modes. Over the years, MFIs have become much more intuitive. Copiers have many buttons and settings that can turn any simple copying operation into a daunting task. Modern multi-function printers work with you, not against you, and are designed with user experience in mind; A copy can be created by pressing a button.

4. More versatile printers
Because of the many tasks a multi-function printer can handle, people are increasingly moving away from standard copiers. Many office workers rely on MFPs to scan printed documents and email them directly to their inbox so they have digital PDF versions to keep on file. Copiers are best suited for long-term printing jobs that require a large number of copies at once. However, finding a machine these days really only makes copies – not printing, scanning, emailing, etc. – Very difficult. With the move towards digital documentation, green initiatives, and efforts to reduce paper use (and associated costs), multi-function printers are becoming the norm.

  1. Multi-function printers are more expensive
    copiers The price difference between a black and white copier and a multi-function printer (sometimes called a copier printer) can easily run into the thousands of dollars because of Multi-function device that provides outstanding functionality. There are also price differences in each of these categories. However, some of the best desktop printers aren’t necessarily the most expensive, and total cost of ownership should be considered. Whichever way you choose, you’ll likely have the option of buying it outright or renting it to help spread your payments over time. With multi-function printers, the biggest price difference is based on whether the printer is a color inkjet or a color laser printer – inkjets are more expensive to run per sheet due to the high cost of inkjet cartridges.
  1. Copiers are generally larger
    Like most common technologies, multi-function devices have decreased in size as they are used. While a copier is often thought of as a bulky machine and requires its own room (hence the term “copy room”), multi-function laser printers are sometimes small enough to fit on a desk and light enough. so that no one can move them. With either, however, the devices will grow in size depending on the amount of paper capacity desired.
