Print anything you want, any time you want, without making a dash for the stationery store. If you already own a printer, then maybe it’s time for an upgrade. Newer models these days are more compact, quieter and smarter, with some even letting you print instantly via your phone.

Whether for home or office use, you first need to decide on which type of printer will serve you best. Inkjet printers, as opposed to laser, are the ones for you if you’re going to be printing photos and high-quality colour documents. A modern inkjet printer is the perfect addition to your at-home work setup.

We’ve compiled a few that we think you would love from Amazon. Make sure to get a Prime subscription for a free one-day delivery.

1. Best Overall: HP Ink Tank 415 Wireless All-In-One Printer

  • Wireless and USB connectivity

Like most printers, HP’s ink tank is an all-in-one device – it lets you print, copy and scan. You can feed it most sheet sizes from A3 to A7, including glossy paper.
