Here are some simple tips to make your printer ink last longer. Copy these (with a pencil) and hang them above your printer.
Print Draft by Default
Unless you’re printing for someone important, use draft mode to save ink. A bit like tuxedos, standard quality is for special occasions.
Use Ink-Friendly Fonts
Printing in Century Gothic can save 30% more ink than using Arial. You can also find free ‘eco fonts’ online, specially designed to use less ink.
Mind The Multi-Colour
If using multi-colour cartridges, be careful you don’t run out of one ink too quickly. If you do, you may have to replace the whole thing. Avoid printing large blocks of colour.
Think Before low Ink
If you get a ‘low ink’ warning on your cartridge, don’t replace it immediately. You may be able to get some more pages out of it. Just keep an eye out for faded text.
Do you need to print at all?
These days even toddlers have HD smart phones and iPads. Isn’t there any other way to share the document instead of printing it?
