Black Friday printer deals 2023: which printer should I buy?

Updated on 27 October, 2023 - Black Friday is rapidly approaching! If you're interested in getting Black Friday printer deals, you might want to start by finding out what's going to be available. Read ahead to find out how you can be prepared and save big on printers this November. Spoiler alert: the deals aren’t exclusive to just November.

When is Black Friday 2023?

Black Friday 2023 is happening on November 24th. It's always the Friday after Thanksgiving, but it isn't only limited to that day. Generally speaking, November marks the beginning of the year's busiest shopping season.

 

Discounts and deals for Black Friday are usually available earlier in November too. We recommend beginning to look for printer deals at least a week before the sales officially start on November 24th.

Laser vs inkjet: comparing the most popular types of printers

The two most popular types of printers are laser printers and inkjet printers. 

It's kind of easy to decide which should be best for you. Here in our comparison table below, you'll see the differences laid out.

Ink-jet

Laser

Initial Cost

£60-£150

£140-£200

Text Quality

Good

Best

Image Quality

Best

Good

Print Speed (Pages per Minute)

5-20 ppm

15-100 ppm

Cartridge Type

Ink

Toner

Best Use

Homes with low print volumes. Bright colours and images on heavier paper.

Offices with higher print volumes. Clear, sharp images and text.

Of course, the best option for a printer depends on what you print. As mentioned, if you want to print images or small quantities, get an inkjet printer. If you're mostly going to print lots of text in black and white, a laser printer will be best. 

There are other things to consider though:

  • We always recommend greener purchases! Eco-friendly printers with non-petroleum-based inks and efficient energy consumption are preferable.

  • The amount you print will lead to more paper and ink/toner used. You should consider these costs and materials when choosing a printer.

  • A wireless printer is very convenient when many devices need to use it at once.

Besides the type of printer, you also might decide to get an all-in-one device. If you need more than just printing, you should buy a multifunctional printer that scans, faxes and more!

Will there be Black Friday printer deals?

You can be sure you'll see deals on the most popular printers on Black Friday. So regardless of which is the best for you, you can take advantage of deals from leading manufacturers and outlets. This includes the One Inkjet printer, Deskjet 2755e printer, HP printer deals and even professional photo printers. 

In fact, other home office equipment will also likely be on sale. So if you need a new printer, scanner or fax machine, you can find good deals for your home office. It's also a good time to stock up on toner cartridge deals and even office software!
