That is the question…
I am not sure that I really do. For my freelance business, I rarely need to print anything at all. The expense would not be warranted as far as I can tell. I would have to purchase the printer, the ink and the paper, and I would only use the machine a few times a year.
My sister is good about people printing from one of the printers on the network at her house. If she desired, I would be happy to pick up a package of paper and a black ink cartridge. It would likely take me a few years just to use these few resources.
Unless I started having to print a large number of articles for a particular publication, I do not see where I would need a printer of my own. I am planning to wait until I get a little further along in my freelance career. At a later date, I may decide that a printer is necessary. For now, I will save the expense. After all, I haven’t printed much of anything in the first two years of my full-time freelance career.
NOTE: I may also decide to purchase a printer when I have to start printing book manuscripts for critiques and edits. We shall see. Again, my sister may let me do this at her place if I buy the ink and a package of paper.
