Times change. More people than ever are doing some or most of their work from home, going into the office only when it's really necessary. Jamie Watson is a prime example. A strategy director at an advertising agency in Bristol, he works with clients, a research team and a creative concept team, and he has transformed his dining room into a home office.
"When I have loads of work to do, working from home is quite a good way to get away from the distractions of the office," he says. "You can manage your time a little better and it's just a bit less rigid than traditional working hours. Obviously, you don't have to commute either, so you can get a bit more work done in a day. I'm quite into cycling, so I can go for a bike ride without having to factor in the time to commute to the office, or vice versa."
Jamie discovered very early on that a reliable printer was an essential, and decided that the Canon PIXMA TR4640 was the ideal home office printer for his specific requirements. However, that's certainly not the only option. Canon's extensive range of PIXMA and MAXIFY printers includes models such as the PIXMA TS7740i, MAXIFY GX1040 and MAXIFY GX2040, perfect home office printers for people who, like Jamie, were previously used to printing in an office environment. As such, these printers are easy to set up and intuitive to use. They're also designed to be fast, efficient and cost-effective, while delivering print quality of a professional standard that your business can depend on.
Here, Jamie shares how his home printer offers him a pathway away from his screen to fully immerse himself in projects he works on at home, and we explore some further benefits of Canon printers for the home office.
