Cool Things You Didn't Know About Your Printer

Printers

Every office has one. Even home offices. Even in the technology-driven digital document age, we still need printers. The great news is that printers can do more than just print work documents.

  • Get creative. Want to make a photo book or refrigerator magnets? You can do it with a little help from your printer. A quick trip to the office supply or craft store will get you the supplies you need--a photo album, scrapbook paper or even magnets. Print on photo paper and get crafty!
  • Print from your iPhone or another mobile device. Smartphones and mobile devices are printer compatible as are many printers. But, don't worry if yours is not. You can quickly and easily download a program that will make your printer and mobile device work together and print.
  • Reserve ink. A cool new trick is that you can download fonts that are slightly perforated, so that you can print as needed and save ink. According to Ecofont, this means there are "little punch holes in the letters, numbers and symbols, and therefore, when printed, can save up to 50% of your ink or toner."
  • No computer needed. Did you ever look at that little USB port on your printer? You can plug a thumb drive or memory card right into the printer and print documents and photos right from the printer without even using your PC. It is also a good idea to back up important documents and images to a thumb drive so you can still access them in case of a computer disaster.

So, there you have it. Some super cool tips that you can use to get the most out of your trusty printer. And, if you need help getting a printer, contact us today in the Fresno/Visalia area.
