Today ink is now more expensive oil, gold and silver! The majority of your printing budget usually goes to your ink needs. Even though, ink is expensive there are ways to get the most out of your Print budget without changing your workflow or productivity! These tips will help you identify areas where you could be saving money and using less printing material to get the job done!
Duplex Printing – Most modern day printers and copiers have the option of double-sided printing. This reduces the amount of paper you use to complete a task.
Font Size – Reducing the font size, or the picture size will help reduce printing by fitting as much as you can on one page. Remember, you will still need the font large enough to read.
Color/Black And White – It’s true that color printing costs more but you should remember that even black and white prints cost money. Setting your printer to produce documents in draft mode will really help reduce waste of ink while still keeping your printed documents looking crisp.
Two Printers – Sounds counterproductive but if you have a specific printer for high-quality print jobs, it may cost you more to print all of your documents from that printer. Having a cost effective printer for your everyday print jobs will save you more money than using only one expensive printer,
Think Green – Buying recycled or remanufactured ink cartridges could save you hundreds every year on your print budget. Recycling you used cartridges and drums can actually make you money. Recycling is not just good for the environment; it’s good for your wallet as well.
Print Management – Getting a print analysis for your office printers shows you where you can cut back on printing and where you can be saving money. Print management also helps you get your printing budget under control to have a consistent printing invoice every month.
