Not every machine will be able to do this. Other features may include stapling and image shifting for special printing needs. Some photocopiers can be directly linked to your computer so you do not have to leave your desk to print. This can be very handy when trying to get a lot of work done. You may also choose to purchase a photocopier that can double as a fax machine. This way you know you are able to send faxes and receive faxes all through one device.
