CRN Printer Week 2021

Printer Week 2021

Welcome to Printer Week 2021, CRN’s annual look at the state of the printer market in North America. When the COVID-19 pandemic forced many businesses to shift to work-from-home last year, things didn’t look good for the already-struggling print industry. But while traditional office printing predictably sank, just the opposite happened in countless home offices. In fact, demand for at-home printers and supplies has surged during the pandemic—even while many print solution providers have found greater interest in their support and services offerings for remote users.

This week we are looking into these industry dynamics and much more, and taking deep dives into managed print services and 3-D printing, too. Check in throughout the week for ongoing analysis of the printer industry along with slideshows featuring the latest offerings from HP Inc., Xerox, Lexmark, Epson, Brother and more.
