Cost Saving Tips
Keeping up with printer ink refills, machine maintenance, and other expenses can get quite costly. Yet there are a few ways to save on your printer costs. At Laser Tek, Pittsburgh’s premier printer repair company, we believe in providing quality services and repair parts at an affordable price. With this in mind, here are a few tips on how to cut down on printer expenditures.
-Check Your Printer’s Settings for Optimal Performance Set-Up
A simple and free way to reduce printing costs is to analyze your printer’s performance settings. The software of printers enables its functions to be altered, such as setting the interface to ink-saver or toner-saver modes. You can customize these settings for optimal ink and toner management.
-Reconsider Your Choice of Ink and Cartridges
Printer ink is one of the most expensive parts of maintaining a printer, whether it is an ink jet, laser printer, or otherwise, is replacing ink on a consistent basis. Though this can get costly, reconsidering your choice of ink and ink cartridges can save you money in the long run. Instead of purchasing brand name ink, buying third party ink cartridges instead, which are compatible with your printer, is a money saving option. Also, using refillable ink cartridges instead of constantly purchasing new ones will greatly save on printing expenditures. Keep in mind that refillable cartridges do still need to be replaced eventually, to avoid failure.
-Use Upgraded Features to Cut the Cost of Other Printer Accessories
From cleaning supplies to paper, there are other cost concerns to count for other than ink and machinery. Paper, for instance, is a huge printer expense that can not be disregarded. For this reason, some upgraded printers offer an automatic duplexer. The technology of this feature enables the printing of both the front and back of a single sheet of paper. This alone cuts printer paper supply costs in half, and is worth the initial investment.
