These days, you will be able to find either dedicated copy machines that work efficiently and are very affordable or multi-purpose all-in-one printers that have a wide array of functions to help out in the office. They are often more expensive but have printing, fax, and scanning capabilities. They will also be less efficient than dedicated copying machines. You will need to know if you expect future upgrades to your office. Color versus black and white is another important distraction. Color printing obviously provides greater quality but will cost much more, especially for toner/ink. Print speed is measured in pages per minute, and if you use the copier frequently, then finding a copier with a fast PPM will be key.
