Quality vs. Cost: Three Office Products That Can Impact Your Bottom Line

December 20, 2020

For many business owners, saving money is a priority, especially as the country continues to weather the COVID-19 pandemic. However, sometimes trying to save money – especially on office products – can cost you more in lost time, productivity, and performance. While individual office supplies may seem like minor expenses, purchasing quality products from the start will not only provide better reliability than inexpensive alternatives, but you can save your business time and money in the long run. Below are three office products that are worth the extra cost and can impact your bottom line.

  • Paper – Choosing the right paper can help save time and money, as well as ensure high-quality documents. Purchasing high-quality paper can prevent unwanted paper jams, reprints, and ink smears. Find a paper brand with a jam-free guarantee, like Boise Paper’s 99% Jam-Free® Performance Guarantee, to ensure quality you can trust in the office.
  • Ink cartridges – To avoid potential print problems, be sure to purchase quality ink and toner cartridges. Keep in mind that brand cartridges like HP and Canon may have better print quality and duration. On the contrary, generic cartridges – while they may cost less – don’t provide the same number of printed pages.
  • Printers – With so many options to choose from, many business owners will opt for the printer with the cheapest price tag. However, inexpensive printing equipment may cost more to maintain in the long run. Find a printer that fits all of your office or home office needs, such as an all-on-one version that has different features and functions that allow you to print, scan, and fax.

Save yourself and your business money now by purchasing high-quality office products from the start.
