Are the volumes going to increase as my business grows.

Do I need to print PDfs and colour files. Should I consider a Postscript Printer
Do I need a printer on a stand or will a desktop printer save space.
Is it important the prints are delivered from the printer stacked?
Are the prints for outdoor use – do they need to be waterproof?
If I send large files, should I consider a printer with an internal hard Drive?
