Hardware Recommendations

printers - color

The University recommends the use of multi-functional devices (MFDs) in place of printers in order to reduce the print expenditures of the University. To purchase a multi-functional device, go to the Procurements Products/Services and Supplier Information page (BC sign-in required), click "ABC" (at the bottom of the page), and then scroll down to the "Copy/Multi Function Device (MFD) Equipment/Maintenance/Supplies" cell.

Important: Please only purchase a color printer if you are replacing an existing one. Otherwise use EaglePrint for color printing, as the cost per page is cheaper when you include the total printer cost with maintenance and toner.

If you MUST have a printer, these are our color printer recommendations from WB Mason:

The WB Mason printers listed above are intended for multi-user or departmental use. Other things to note:

  • Support: These printers are fully supported by Information Technology Services and come with a 1-year warranty. It is strongly recommended that you purchase the optional 3-year warranty. 
  • The printers all work with either Windows or Mac OS (10.0 or higher).
  • When buying a printer, consider the ITS choice first. Our on-campus hardware repair staff are certified to repair the ITS recommended brands.
  • All replacement items, such as toner, rollers, and other maintenance parts are the financial responsibility of the owner/department. And note that connecting cables are not included with the printer and must be bought separately.
