The Photocopier: A Place Where You Can Make Copies And Socialize At The Same Time

Is there anything at work that attracts a group like the photocopier? It appears that this is the place where numerous chats occur, gossip is being spread and folks take more time than needed to get the job finished.

No office is complete without a photocopier. There are always documents that need to be duplicated, and the copying machine is the place for it to be done. Of course, you can sometimes print more than one copy off of your computer, but the expense is much greater to use a printer than a copy machine, mostly because of the cost of ink.

On the other hand, a copy machine makes a quick duplicate of the document needed, or can whip out multiple copies when necessary. It really performs such a simple function, but is indispensable nonetheless.

Copying machines come in many varieties. Of course they all perform the same basic function of creating copies. They are nearly all very easy to use, with large buttons that are rather self explanatory, so they can usually be used with no training, or just a word or two.

They different types of photocopier available are made to serve different purposes depending on where they will be used. A personal copy machine for use in a home office might be very small and only perform the most basic tasks. This is enough in a setting where it will not be used en masse by numerous employees for huge copy loads at a time.

In larger offices the person whose job it is to buy copy machines has to be aware of all the options. Knowing what to buy is important because you may end up with all sorts of functions that you don’t need and will never use, meaning you paid too much and the copier probably takes up more room than necessary.

On the other hand, if you don’t research well enough, you may find that you purchase a machine that is missing a function that would be extremely helpful or maybe even necessary in your office.

Such considerations as how many copies you will be making daily, what size or sizes of paper you need to make copies on and whether or not you want to load unusual sizes, or have separate compartments ready, how many different colors and qualities of paper you want to be able to store in the machine to have at the ready at the push of a button etc. There are a lot of things to keep in mind.

The photocopier is an essential part of the office. It makes creating copies simple for any employee to do, and it also provides a social area while you wait for those copies to print, which may or may not be appreciated by your boss.
