HP’s New Line of Printers and Solutions

In my last post, I wrote, with input from Xerox, some tips in choosing a printer for your business. With so many new printers, coming out more often than cars, it is VERY confusing to know what printer is for you.
A few days ago, HP released a new line of printers, which I’ve outlined below for your information.
In addition to printers HP also continues to build on the value added software/partners it offers its customers. HP’s new relationship with LogoWorks, a company that specializes in affordable, web-based logo design services, enables SMB customers to get a customized, professional-quality logo created in just a few days. Get more information here and get information about the free course in creation and business identity available through http://www.hplearningcenter.com.
HP also has expanded its relationship with StockLayouts, a company that creates agency-quality graphic design templates in Microsoft Word and Microsoft Publisher for in-office printing. Through this relationship, HP now offers customers a special edition CD of StockLayouts templates packed with professional-looking brochures, flyers, newsletters, business cards and more. The CD can be purchased online here.
