Laser Printer is a popular type of personal computer printer that uses a non-impact (keys don’t strike the paper), photocopier technology. When a document is sent to the printer, a laser beam “draws” the document on a selenium-coated drum using electrical charges. After the drum is charged, it is rolled in toner, a dry powder type of ink.

The toner adheres to the charged image on the drum. The toner is transferred onto a piece of paper and fused to the paper with heat and pressure. After the document is printed, the electrical charge is removed from the drum and the excess toner is collected. Most print only in monochrome and it is up to 10 times more expensive.

It is different from an inkjet printer in a number of ways. The toner or ink is dry. In an inkjet, it is wet. Over time, an inkjet printer is about ten times more expensive to operate than a laser printer because ink needs replenishing more frequently.

The printed paper from an inkjet printer will smear if wet, but a laser-printed document will not. Both types of printer operate quietly and allow fonts to be added by using font cartridges or installing soft fonts. If your printing needs are minimal, an inkjet printer is sufficient. But if your printing volume is high, consider buying this type of printer.
