Xerox with a Z – Why People Say Zerox

Are you looking for a Xerox copier? If so, it is possible you started your search with Zerox copiers. For many who type in Zerox, they aren’t even looking specifically for a Xerox, they are using it as a nomenclature for the word copier.

We have looked and were surprised how often people look for Zerox copiers. With that, it got us thinking about words people use when they mean something different. For example, if you are looking for a Xerox, even spelled correctly, many people are really just looking for a copier. Here is a fun video dealing with this.

Now, what are some other words that become synonymous with the technology they invented? Spoiler alert, Xerox did invent the photocopier.

Some that we came up with were Kleenex for facial tissue, Top Ramen for Ramen, Coke for colas of many varieties, Jacuzzi for hot tubs, Chapstick for lip gloss. There are others like Q-Tips, Sharpies, Roller Blades. Even there are legal articles that speak about how the word Xerox almost became a victim of becoming a generic terms and losing trademark protection.

Now, back to the issue at hand. If you did, in fact type in Zerox to just find an office copier, here are some of the copiers we have which could suit your needs rather well.
