Depending on the business, printing cost can add up if one is not careful. Inkjet cartridges can cost as much as thirty dollars and are only good for around four hundred pages. With all of this, how does one go about saving money with printing and most of all, does it with quality.
One of the best options available is to invest in a laser printer, which is faster, prints more per cartridge and costs less per page. Colour lasers are more expensive, so it might be a good idea to only invest into one that only prints in black and white.
Another way to save money in regards to printing is to refill the cartridges. While many, especially printing companies, claim that this produces less than desirable results and can even damage the printer, many people have found that this simply isn't true. In addition, there are printer refill kits available that will allow you to do this at home.
In regards to dealing with the employee who will print anything and everything, it might be a good idea to take away the inkjet on the desk and to set up a network people. If someone has to walk to get something they printed, they are less likely to print it. In addition, there are methods to limit the amount employees print and even by encouraging them to read PDF or Word Documents. Finally, many printers offer options to cut back on the amount of ink used and you can shrink several documents to fit on one page.
If you find you are printing a lot, offset printing offers a great method to saving money. This printing offers a great advantage in that the cost is one of the lowest in the industry. Typically, offset is used for thousands upon thousands of printing. However, the quality for printing images is slightly lower and the labour that goes into setting it up is quite intensive.
One final way to save money is buy digital printing. This kind of printer is generally for smaller jobs and involves transferring a digital image directly to the page. Using this method, one can save even more money than with then the former. Even though the cost per page is higher, this is offset by saving in labour.
With the rising price of ink, it is good idea to try to save wherever you can. Cutting expenses is a good way to saving on expenses.
