The question of wether to rent or buy a printer really comes down to your cash flow.

If you want to keep costs low in the early phase of your business then renting a printer makes absolute sense as there are no upfront costs. Yes it is slightly more expensive over time if you look at the entire repayment, but keeping costs down and cash flow on hand in the early phases has a better ROI.

If you have an established business with good cash flow, then buying a printer is probably a better solution for your business.
