How to keep you color costs in check
You may have noticed that a color copier can get your color printing costs lower than a color printer. If you are considering making this switch, or you have recently done so it would be wise to keep a few things in mind. In our experience the following steps will help you get the most out of a color copier.
- Set people’s default print to black and white. Make sure that you set the option to “use black ink only” because composite grey often counts as color.
- Before you sign anything, look at what kind of documents that you are printing. If you do a lot of color then you do not want to sign a contract that will allow you to be charged if your color is greater than 20% coverage.
- Don’t pay for scans, if you do then definitely do not pay more than $.oo15 per scan.
- Take the time to get trained on the manufacturer’s tools for managing print costs. They all have something in one form or another and you need to use them.
