Printers are output devices used to produce printed papers from the computer, Printers can produce text and images on paper and this is called 'hard copy'. Based on the technology used, they can be classified as Impact or Non-impact printers. Impact printers use the typewriting printing mechanism where there is a mechanical contact between the print head and paper. Dot-matrix and Character printers fall under this category. Non-impact printers do not touch the paper while printing. They use chemical, heat or electrical signals to etch the symbols on paper. Inkjet, DeskJet, Laser and Thermal printers fall under this category of printers. Printers are generally slow devices (30 pages per minute are considered fast) and the cost per page is actually relatively high.
