Printers: Making Hard Copies

Your monitor displays images in real time, but they're fleeting. For permanent records of your work, you must add a printer to your system. Printers create hard copy output from your software programs.

You can choose from various types of printers for your system, depending on your exact printing needs. Laser printers work much like copying machines, applying toner (powdered ink) to paper by using a small laser. Inkjet printers, on the other hand, shoot jets of ink to the paper's surface to create the printed image.
