HP office printing solutions are but one of the many brands of printers and MFPs Tarsus Distribution carries. When choosing HP office printing devices for your business you can be assured that you have chosen a high-quality product from a globally trusted brand, with after-sales support from Tarsus. To keep your printer in top working condition and producing the highest quality printing, it is best to stick to genuine HP printer cartridges rather than opting for cheaper, generic consumables. In this post, we will be focusing on Tarsus as the official distributor of genuine HP printers and the genuine HP cartridges that fit them in South Africa, for whichever HP printer you use. Tarsus offers the full range of office printers and the cartridges that fit them, from laserjet printers to inkjet printers, and offers exclusive portfolios such as the Premium A3 range of HP printers. The HP range of printers for business includes smaller printers for up to 5 users that don't need high volumes of printed documents or larger printers for up to 25 users that print high volumes. Apart from these, Tarsus distributes a variety of specialised printers, such as large format printers, for example.
When you choose any HP printer, for anything from standard document printing to large format, computer-assisted design and drafting (CAD) printing which is normally done by professionals involved in architecture or infrastructure design, you can rest assured that you've chosen a high-quality product from a global leader in ICT technology and peripherals. The type of HP printer you choose for office use in either small or large enterprises will determine whether you need inkjet printers, laserjet printers, or MFPs, and each of these options has its own features that make them more or less suitable for different users.
Printing ink is a liquid, much like that used in pens. Toner, on the other hand, is a fine, dry plastic powder that is melted onto the page using laser technology. Both ink and toner cartridges come in either disposable or refillable varieties. When it comes to cost, it is difficult to draw broad comparisons between ink and toner, since there are considerable variations depending on the specific product and the page yield. As a general rule, inkjet printing is almost always more expensive than toner printing, especially for high volumes. Laser printers tend to be more expensive than inkjet printers, but the cost of maintenance and cartridge replacement is much lower. Toner cartridges are much more affordable over time and are also more efficient, better quality, and less wasteful. You won’t have to worry about smudging or bleeding, for example, which can commonly occur with ink printing.
Inkjet printing still has its advantages though. Inkjet printers are usually cheaper and more compact and offer superior colour for photo printing, for example. For users with more varied needs, such as those who want to be able to print photo-quality images and do not print large volumes, an inkjet printer is the better option.
HP offers the world’s most secure printing for offices. As a business owner, procurement manager, or CTO, you can find the right printers or MFPs to suit the needs of your organisation.

HP’s Laserjet 400 and 600 series of printers and MFPs for large enterprises that need high volume printing capacity, is surprisingly compact in design and won't add any clutter stress to your office environment.
Some of the top features of HP office printers and MFPs for large enterprises include:
Want to print high-quality colours? Then, use HP EasyColour to manage the settings for maximum impact. HP LaserJet toner cartridges with ColorSphere toner deliver vibrant results that let you print precise colour images at up to 1200 dpi. Furthermore, you can also help save money and reduce interruptions at the office by using an optional high-capacity black print cartridge.
You can easily manage print, copy, scan, and fax jobs directly from your HP Multi-Function Printer. Use the HP Quick Sets to launch one-touch workflows, including sending scanned documents directly to an email and fax or a network folder from the large, full-colour touch screen.
Achieve accurate, high-quality scanning results. Use image preview on the 8-inch, full-colour touch screen to add, delete, reorder or zoom in on pages, and digitally send documents simply by touching the screen. You can improve on efficiency by sending scanned documents directly to an email and a fax or network folder.
The built-in Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP)—a protocol used to process queries and updates to an LDAP information directory, on an external server—can also be used for network authentication and authorisation and simplifies email distribution. Use optional HP Digital Sending Software to enable advanced document capture and routing. All this is to help you capture the right content more efficiently. Blank-page suppression technology on this Multi-Function Printer automatically detects and removes blank pages from scanned documents, resulting in reduced paper use.
The optional HP Imaging and Printing Security Centre software enable fleet-level protection. Security can also be boosted with the HP High-Performance Secure Hard Disk, which protects the sensitive data that is stored on it. And, when data is in transit over the network, the information (such as information in PDFs, emails, and other print jobs) is encrypted. Optional authentication solutions such as badge and card readers can also be added.
Each printer in your fleet checks its operating code and repairs itself from attacks. Your printer’s outgoing network connections are inspected to stop suspicious requests and thwart malware. Memory activity is monitored to continually detect and stop attacks. Firmware is automatically checked during start-up to determine if it’s an authentic code that is digitally signed by HP.
Besides these industry-leading security solutions, you will also be able to control and help regulate printing costs thanks to HP colour access. If you are looking for a printing solution that helps you do more with your investment, this is it. The HP Open Extensibility Platform simplifies the development and deployment of HP and third-party solutions, and HP FutureSmart Firmware (more on this below) lets you easily update and expand MFP capabilities as new features become available.
Save energy, by using HP Auto-On/Auto-Off Technology. This type of intelligence allows you to turn your printer on when you need it and off when you don’t. The Instant-on Technology and Instant-on Copy will help you to conserve even more power when printing.
Collecting data, controlling settings, and creating useful reports can help you to achieve environmental goals, using the optional HP EcoSMART Fleet. You can also prevent wasted paper by conveniently printing on both sides of a page, using automatic two-sided printing. And with PIN printing, you can help ensure that only authorised users are consuming resources.
HP helps you to reduce your impact on the environment. For instance, you can return original HP LaserJet toner cartridges through HP Planet Partners for free and easy recycling. HP never refills or resells HP cartridges, and never sends them to a landfill.
