How to Waste Less Money on Printing

How to Waste Less Money on Printing

It’s very easy for printing to become a massive resource sink for your business, contributing to a considerable amount of waste. Businesses often take measures to lessen the amount of paper consumption in the workplace to help offset the cost of printing. Let’s look at some ways you can prevent printing from eating away at your profits.

Too Much Unnecessary Color Printing

Color printers and printing in color, even when your standard black and white will suffice, is a surefire way to spend more than you need to on your printing. Color ink and toner are more expensive than your standard black, so be sure to print in color only when necessary.

Too Much Unnecessary Printing in General

Before you print out your next document, ask yourself if you really need to print it out. Chances are you don’t, and this wanton printing is a waste of ink and toner that can add up. You should always encourage your employees to think twice before printing, and if there is not a necessity for it, then don’t.

Printing on Only One Side of the Paper

If you don’t use double-sided printing, you’re just wasting paper. You can print internal documents on both sides to reduce your paper usage; we recommend setting your printers to this by default so your employees don’t accidentally print on one side.

Not Paying Attention to Energy Efficiency

Older printers can use too much energy, consuming more power than the newer, more energy-efficient models. Businesses can upgrade to more energy-efficient models and change settings to keep from wasting power.
