Printing costs are generally an afterthought when it comes to running a business. These costs, however, can be leaking out of your business without you even realizing it.
This is because the majority of companies do not have any procedures or applications set up to help manage the costs related to high technology printing, and they’re hard to keep track of. Below are a few methods to help better handle printing costs for your business.
Use 2-Sided Printing
This is a simple and efficient method to cut down up to 50 percent of printing expenses and waste. You can use these types of prints in casual meetings without wasting too much paper and saving costs at the same time.
Print Primarily in Black and White
While we all like to add a little color to life, it will save a lot of money at the office if you only print in color when it’s necessary. Color cartridges can cost a hefty 40% or more than their monotone counterparts. Charts and tables can often get their point across and be just as effective even when printed in black and white or grayscale.
Use Recycled Ink
Ink and toner costs are often the most expensive part of owning a printer. Switching to recycled or remanufactured cartridges can save you up to 15-50% of those costs!
By following these guidelines, you will be able to save a good chunk of change easily without having to make difficult or costly changes. Implement them in your business to start saving money now.
