Diana, you will need a laser printer not an inkjet printer. Mortgage loan documents must be printed on a laser printer only and never on an inkjet. A laser printer might cost more initially, but they are much more economical to run then inkjets.

Both the Brother and HP have great laser printers and for someone new to the business, buying a used printer off of Amazon or E-Bay is a good option. Also, I buy re-manufactured toner cartridges, which are half or even a third of what a new one from one of the office supply stores costs. The Brother printers will need a new drum after so many toner cartridges and I also buy those on Amazon or E-Bay. The HP printers have the drum built into the toner cartridges so each time you change the toner cartridges you're getting a new drum also.

I suggest you do a search on this web site as well as NotaryRotary.com regarding printers and you'll see lots of suggestions.

Diana, after weighing functionality vs cost (initial and ongoing) I went with a Brother MFC-8710DW. A lightly used one can be gotten for around $200. The toner and drum costs are relatively low as well and I recommend keeping a spare set on hand. What I really like is its speed - up to about 40 ppm. You can set up auto select, so it can draw legal and letter paper as needed. One drawback is that the Multi Purpose tray only holds 50 sheets, so I invested in the optional lower tray for about $140. If the machine only has the standard 64 Mb of memory, I suggest buying a 256 Mb card, which is only about $25. Installing it is quite simple.

So far, I'm very happy with this printer/fax/copier/scanner. Good luck!
