October 7, 2011 | By | Reply More

"Hybrid workers", people who occasionally work from home, are becoming a growing phenomenon in the UK. According to the TUC, 3.7 million workers now fall into this category.

As a hybrid worker, there are techniques you can use to print documents from home which still look professional.

Small and medium sized businesses who employ hybrid workers often face difficulties when competing with bigger companies, who have access to the latest technology and resources, to ensure consistency in document quality. The following tips will help you find the perfect printer for a home office:

  • Look for a printer which combines the functionality of a large machines with the compact size and affordable price of a home printer, as in home offices, space is often at a premium
  • If your business produces CDs, DVDs or Blu-rays, ensure that they are well presented to clients by printing a professional label with your business name and the title of the disc. A printer which allows you to print directly onto the disc will give a professional finish
  • Printers with wireless connectivity are great for home offices, as they can be moved into other areas of the house if needed
  • Look for a printer which offers different cartridge options for different users to lower ink consumption. It’s easy to keep printing costs low with Brother’s compact inkjet printers. A new high yield cartridge produces more ink, offering improved running costs for workers who print large volumes. The lower cost option will suit users who print less frequently, which is often ideal for hybrid workers.

As a hybrid worker, there are techniques you can use to print documents from home which still look professional:

  • Look for a printer which can produce duplex printing which will not only lower your carbon footprint, it will also reduce paper consumption
  • There’s no need to wait to go into the office to print colour documents – simply use colour wisely. A bright colour logo or heading can help documents stand out without requiring lots of colour ink

Brother’s new range of A4 inkjet printers have been designed with hybrid workers in mind, combining the functionality of a large office machine with the compact size and affordable price of a home printer.
