A printer is a peripheral device which provides graphical representation or text on a paper. The first commercial printers use a unique mechanism from electric typewriters and a teletype machine. The printer has a feature of high speed which increases its demands specifically for computer use. There are various types of printers which serves multiple purposes. Personal printers are designed to support individual users and are used for low-volume, short-turnaround print jobs, which require a minimal setup time for production of a hard copy of a given document. There are printers which can print documents stored on memory cards or from digital cameras and scanners.
