  1. Dot matrix printers use small electromagnetically activated pins in the print head and an inked, to produce images by an impact. These printers are slow and noisy.
  2. Inkjet printers form the image on the page by spraying tiny droplets of ink from the printed head. The printer needs several colors of ink. These are inexpensive, but the cost of ink cartridge makes it a costly.
  3. Laser printer produces good quality output. The image to be printed is transferred to a drum using a laser beam. The toner powder from the toner cartridge is then sprayed on the drum. The toner powder sticks onto the portions traced the drum by the laser beam. It is transferred to a paper by rolling the paper on the drum. Through heating, the powder is fused on to the paper. Laser printers are faster and their speed is in page per minute (ppm).
  4. The thermal printer produces a printed image by selectively heating heat-sensitive when it passes over the thermal print head.
