The difference between a Copier, Printer and a Multifunction Printer

Do you know the difference between a copier, a printer and a multifunction printer, they are kind of the same thing, right? Well, not exactly. There is quite a difference between them, especially when it comes to functionality and getting the job done. Let me show you why.

I know what you are thinking. How in the world are these devices different? Don’t they do the same thing? I’ll help you understand what these devices are and what they can do. Let me break it down for you. I am pretty sure you have seen a printer and most likely used one. It’s a device that accepts text and graphic output from a computer and transfers the information to paper.

This can happen wired or wirelessly from your computer. These beauties come in many different types and sizes and can assist with something as small as business documents to larger projects like blueprints and maps. Here’s a little history for you.

A copier in its beginning stages included an electrically charged drum that made a negative image of your original document, then paper with an electric charge passed over the drum to adhere to the toner to produce the copy. To put it simply, a copier just copies by way of a sheet bed scanner. And that is it. Now let us get to M.F. piece or multi-function printers.
