Tuesday Tips: Making Your Printer Supplies Go Further

Making Your Printer Supplies Go Further

If it seems like you are constantly heading to the supply closet to replenish you supply of paper or toner, then you may need to change a few things to get the most out of your supplies. Here are a few tips for making your laser printer supplies last longer:

Changing the font or size of your text can reduce the number of pages in each document AND can reduce the amount of ink on each page. Some fonts use more ink than others, so switching to a more minimal font can help you cut back on ink.

Set your printers to double-sided and avoid printing cover sheets. These simple settings can greatly reduce the number of pages printed throughout your organization. Additionally, changing the default margins can shorten your documents as well.

When printing from web pages, use the print preview tool to know what exactly is about to be printed. Avoid printing unnecessary pages or graphics by limiting the window that you print from.

These few ideas can help you to save on printing and prolong the lifespan of your supplies.  Contact us for more ideas on how you can create better printing processes. Learn more.
