Weâve all been there, your printer runs out of ink when you need it the most causing you to resort to wacky colours for your professional document, or forcing you to take a drive to the nearest public printers only to find you forgot the ten cents you needed to print. Youâre frantic, youâre running around asking people for a dime; everyone thinks youâre a lunatic, you miss a deadline and you forever curse that dreaded printer of yours.
Donât get caught up in that scenario again! Ink can most certainly be costly â especially for those that print in high volumes. But here we will offer some money saving tips to ensure you donât run into an unfortunate scenario like that ever again!
Although it may be tempting to buy the cheapest printer in the store, if you know that youâll be using the printer a lot you should consider making an investment on something more expensive. The truth is, that a lot of cheaper printers will end up costing more for ink. High-end laser printers often have a lower cost per page, while budget inkjets typically have high ink costs. Do your research and donât get stuck with an unreliable printer.
Another good reason to invest in a colour laser printer is that they are capable of printing graphics, photos, and/or text at a quality suitable for basic marketing handouts or brochures. This will eliminate your need to spend a lot of money and time at a print shop.
This is the easiest and most obvious tip. Donât print off unnecessary information. Highlight what you need, turn off colour printing, and check to make sure youâre printing the pages you need and not the 24 other pages of advertisements or whatever it may be.
If youâre low on cash and need ink for some basic printing, many third-party websites offer cheaper ink options. Although the prices are definitely lower, you may be paying for lower quality ink as well, so itâs important to do your research and buy from reputable sellers.
Sometimes youâll receive a warning that your ink is running low far before it actually is. Instead of panicking and rushing to buy a new cartridge, wait it out and watch for decreased quality in printing. When the quality reduces then you will know that you can trust the warnings.
Donât let your business or project fall behind because you ran out of ink. Make sure you keep these tips in mind for the next time you go to print something; it may save you for a disaster situation.
