Printers and scanners

It might seem odd to need a printer if you're doing Web design work, but you'll find that it's very handy. Part of the process of designing sites involves making presentations and outlining the plans, and can also include creating and signing contracts. If you're creating a Web design studio, make sure you can copy and print documents.

The other important thing you'll need is a scanner. It's common for photos or other documents to be available only in a physical form. If you don't have a way to scan those items, you'll have a difficult time using them on your site. If you expect to scan a relatively small number of images for use on Web pages only, you can use a common flatbed scanner. If you intend to scan large numbers of images and want to use them for print projects, you'll need a more professional scanner. Make sure you consider what type of work you will do and match the equipment to the task. Note: If you do choose to scan client materials, make sure you build the time it takes to scan those images into your proposal with an option for them to opt out and scan and deliver them to you in a suitable format. (Specify the format.)
