How can you lower your printing costs? We have a few tricks up our sleeve.

How can I lower my printing cost?

Every time you print something, you are spending money on both your paper and your toner. Unfortunately, that adds up pretty quickly. So, how do you lower your printing cost without sacrificing the quality and quantity you need to succeed?

Here are our most recommended tips to save on those costs:

White space is a bad thing.
Don’t waste paper by printing out one email on one sheet of paper when you can combine multiple emails on one page or print on both sides of your paper.

Keep an eye on your printer preview.
Why? Because it can save you time, effort and frustration (not to mention money). You don’t want to start your print job over again because you forgot to change an innocuous setting, like ‘landscape’ instead of ‘portrait’.

Check your color settings.
Color is always a more expensive option so keep an eye out for any errant images or hyperlinks that you don’t need to include on your document. Make sure that “color” isn’t selected when you’re printing black and white documents. Even though the document itself won’t have color on it, your printer still thinks it’s using color and dump toner/ink accordingly.

Keep your machine clean and well cared for.
A dingy or damaged machine could result in frequent paper jams, lines on your copies or overall dirty looking prints. All of which could result in service fees on top of the cost of re-printing everything after your copier is cleaned and repaired.

If you feel like you are paying too much for printing then don’t hesitate to give us a call today at 803-407-4321!
