Here are some of the products I use and keep stocked in my home office – I use them frequently for client jobs as well as for my own projects. I don’t love overspending so I research a ton to find products that are effective, won’t break the bank, and that don’t take up a ton of unnecessary space.
Epson Eco Tank Printers are awesome. They are great space savers, filling the tanks is easy and they last forever. This one also works as a scanner, printer, copier… so it’s great for a variety of reasons.
Canon Pixma Pro 100 Printer if you’re looking for big beautiful photo printing (and normal printing) and have a bigger space – this printer will deliver high quality every time. I use this one for printing client projects .
Regular paper and cardstock works fine, but this Luster paper is great for special projects like invitations and high end business cards (to be used with the Canon printer).
Having a good paper cutter is mandatory if you’re printing from home. This one is priced just right and is industrial enough to cut several pages at a time or larger sized paper than your standard 8.5×11.
I use this Wacom tablet a ton when I’m working in the Adobe Programs. It’s not a mandatory purchase when you’re just starting out, but it makes things a lot easier as you dive deeper into graphic design.
This cabinet has been an awesome storage space for paper, ink, printers, and all the tools I use for our home office. To keep the shelves organized on either side I use wicker baskets I picked up from Target.

I haven’t been paid for recommending these products – they’re the ones that I’ve found that work best for my business and our home office – but I do receive a small kickback if you purchase any of these products from my links.
