What is the Lifespan of Your Office Printer?


As 2020 comes to a close, are you budgeting for new office equipment?

Do you wonder if it’s time to buy a new printer or copier for your business?

A new copier or printer (or combination of both) is a big investment. Before you make a decision, you want to make sure your current machine is absolutely in need of replacement.

See our tips for deciding if it’s the right time to buy a new printer on our website!

If a new printer or copier is the right way to go for your business, check out our guide for making the final decision about repairing or replacing. If you need recommendations for a brand or specific model for your needs, we can help with that too.

Why Shopping Local Matters


When you have a major order to place, it’s tempting to take the easy route with Amazon or any other major chain stores. It’s convenient, and sometimes the price is right.

But on the other hand, think of the countless incorrect orders and delayed shipments you’ve had to spend time on the phone correcting. You could be spending that time growing your business and supporting your customers and clients!

Keeping your dollars in your hometown will save you money in the long run, and also help boost your local economy. You’ll also experience the fast and friendly customer service that only a small business can provide.

Choosing a small business to get your computer and printer supplies as well as printer maintenance from will benefit you by:

  1. Giving you the opportunity to “know your neighbors” and grow closer community ties
  2. Help local businesses grow a stronger economy – local businesses hire local workers, creating more jobs
  3. Provide A+ customer service – no more big brands putting you on hold for hours only to give you mediocre results at best. Local businesses thrive on building relationships based on fast and friendly customer service and providing great products


Michigan Computer Supplies is family owned and operated and has been providing other small businesses in Ann Arbor with printer ink, toner, and managed print services and repair for over 20 years.
