Last month HP celebrated the shipment of its 200 Millionth LaserJet printer – a staple item in offices all across the world.
With the rise of digital communications, many professionals and pundits envisioned a world of “paper less” communication. However, clearly paper is a necessity in most industries and a preference in many others.
