The Three Most Popular Printer Brands

When you're selecting a printer, there are a variety of printer companies that you have to choose from. Modern printers were developed many years ago to help people who had home offices to be able to print whatever they wanted to print. There are tons of companies that you could buy from, but only three who seem to be at the top of their game when it comes to making high quality printers that most people love.


Canon was created back in the 1930's when they started manufacturing cameras. It was not long, however, before they became creators of print machines as well, and many are surprised to learn that the first Apple LaserWriter, which received wide acclaim and was made by Hewlett Packard, was actually guilt using a Canon printing engine. This company still creates printers for today's market and sells millions of dollars worth a year. They have recently jumped on the wireless printer bandwagon and people who wish to stick with this brand of company can find printers from the company in all sizes, from office printers to home printers and even to small photo printers.

Hewlett Packard

Hewlett Packard, also known as HP, is a computer company that has been in the business since the late 1930's. This company is known for creating excellent computers and computer software and is even known for creating cameras and printers. Their cameras and printers come from their imaging and printing group, which creates inkjet, laserjet, officejet, and large format printers for purchase. They also came up with LightScribe, which is an optical recording technology that is designed to etch labels onto compact discs using a laser and can be found in many laptops or desktop computers. Their printers are well known for being high quality and for lasting for a very long time.


In 1942, the Epson company was founded. It became famous for making dot matrix printers, and actually created the printer control language to control their printers, which has became the industry standard for controlling printers during that era of printing. Unlike some companies, which were unable to last during the jump from dot matrix printers to inkjet printers, the Epson company expanded and changed up their products to represent the new high quality inkjet printers. They have continued to design high quality printers and to make new technology in order to run their printers properly, including the Micro Piezo technology, which uses a piezoelectric crystal in each nozzle in order to project ink onto the page. The company also created DURABrite ink, which is known in the printing world as being some of the brightest and boldest color ink available to purchase.

These three companies are the leaders in the industry, and selecting which one to purchase from can be difficult. All three have excellent customer service departments, and comparable printers. Selecting which one to use really comes down to a matter of personal preference for the consumer.
