laser vs. inkjet printer for vectors and text


Question

As far as I've heard, a laser monochrome printer could deliver better sharp results compared with ink printers, when it comes to text printing.

Assuming that all I need to print it's black text (from small to very large letter sizes) or vector shapes on white or color A4 paper, 160..220gr/m2 thick, which would be a better solution, a laser (e.g. 4800 x 600 dpi) or an inkjet printer?

Accepted Answer

In my personal experience (web and logo mockups for agencies and clients), laser printers consistently outperform inkjet at the expense of increased operation cost (ink, initial cost of printer, etc.) If I could I'd go laser printers with every print job I would in a heartbeat, but the cost is a little prohibitive. :)

Inkjet will do most of what you need, but if for some reason you need extra sharpness, then laser seems to be the choice to go... It's up to you to determine if it's worth the additional cost.
