A printer is one of the main output devices needed for a computer. It is used for the output of ducuments such as word documents or images.

There are two main types of printers: laser and inkjet. Inkjet: any printer that places tons of extremely small droplets of ink onto paper to create an image. Laser: process that rapidly produces high quality text and graphics by passing a laser beam over a charged drum to define a differentially charged image.
