Office copiers in Everett WA can save you the time and expense of taking your copying needs to another company and are an investment which will usually pay for itself fairly quickly. Having an office copier can be useful in schools, libraries, businesses, and anywhere else that uses a lot of photocopied pages. There are many different brands of copiers and several different models within each brand, but the things that separates office copiers from personal copiers is that they can more easily handle bulk jobs, and will usually use a heat and electrostatic based transfer system called xerography. Other processes that copiers can use include dye sublimation, transfer film, and ink jet technology; however, most will still be referred to as photocopiers.
   
Xerography works by having a drum that has a charged based on photosensitivity, charged toner particles, and charged paper. In most office copiers in Everett WA the photosensitive drum will be conductive when hit with light and those areas will lose their charge while the dark areas will keep their negative charge. Then when the positively charged toner comes in contact with the drum it will only stick to the negatively charged areas. A negatively charged paper will then come in contact with the drum and toner; because this paper has a stronger charge than the drum the toner will lift off of the drum and stick to the paper. This is where the heat comes into play because the toner is then sealed to the paper with heat and rollers. This process produces durable and high quality black-and-white copies, color copiers use a different method and are usually less common to find in office settings.

One of the main things that will set office copiers in Everett WA apart from other copiers is the fact that they are made for bulk printing jobs such as legal paperwork or newsletters. This means that they are usually large machines which can have different paper trays for different sizes and colors of paper. They are also usually efficient machines which can break the cost of each copy down to a few cents and which can sometimes also print or fax documents. Some of the other features of office copiers which helped to make the systems popular include double-sided printing, scanning and collating multiple pages, and sometimes even stapling.
