We do not make specific printer recommendations; however, reports and forms within Blackbaud products have been specifically designed and tested with HP LaserJet printers. It is not possible for Blackbaud to design for and test reports and forms with every printer; therefore, results with other printers may vary.

Due to the nature of Windows-based applications, customers should carefully consider printer options, understanding that speed, quality, and usability are generally best achieved with more recent printer models.


You should consult with reputable vendors and suppliers to determine the best choice for your organization.


Updated printer drivers, available directly from the printer or operating system manufacturer, may be necessary for compatibility with Blackbaud products. The Financial Edge is not compatible with dot matrix printers.
