HP Shifts From Inkjet to Laser in Office

An article in Germany last week stated that HP was ending the PageWide program for the office and would soon be discontinuing their A3 office MFP inkjet (PageWide) program.

NOTE: HP is NOT discontinuing their A3 laser MFP program.

Many models from this webpage and perhaps even the page itself will be discontinued.

In response to our request for confirmation, HP sent us the following:


HP continues to invest in innovation to serve the evolving needs of the office print market, drive the hybrid work environment of the future, and lead the industry as one of the world’s most sustainable companies. When HP introduced PageWide technology in 2012, it was to address a need for a lower cost per page, sustainable printer for small office environments. However, over the course of the last decade, HP innovations have driven significant improvement in LaserJet technology from a price, quality, size, service and energy consumption standpoint. 

  • Up to 20% reduction in hardware cost, weight, and size
  • Nearly 250% increases in cartridge capacity
  • Up to 30% reduction in service costs
  • An 87% reduction in energy consumption*

The LaserJet portfolio is designed to support organizations with hybrid or distributed workforces who are seeking services and solutions to securely manage their digital transformation needs. LaserJet technology enables us to deliver world class security, seamless productivity and manageability while maintaining our commitment to sustainability.


We will keep you posted on further updates as they become available.
