Top Printers for 2022

Top Printers for 2022

We've rounded up our top printer picks when it comes to price, speed, photos, and more

by Kurt Knutsson

Whether you work from home, an office, know a student, or only need to print once a year when it’s tax-time, printers are still a necessary electronic for most.

If you’re a small-business owner, you may need to print receipts and order forms constantly, or you may be someone who only needs to print the occasional shipping label or document to sign. If you’re working remotely, you may have a make-shift home office and need to fit your printer into a tighter space.  If you print in large volumes or frequently, refillable ink printers might end up saving you money and giving the color rich finish you need.

No matter what your printing needs, we’ve compiled our top printer choices for 2022 for photos and scanning, quick turnarounds, on-the-go printing, and more.  We start with the winning all-in-one printer that I call my favorite and also bought it for our own family.
