There are a variety of solutions that can help you save money on your print costs. From the simple to the more sophisticated, here are some easy tips.

  • Before you print a document ask yourself if you really need to as a hard copy of it. So much ink and paper are wasted on documents that don’t need to be printed.

  • Add a green message like “please consider the environment before printing this email” to help remind recipients about paper waste. This green message is a great reminder for employees and customers.

  • Take advantage of default settings. Modern printers can be set to default print on both sides of the paper or in black-and-white rather than color. Default settings can help curtail waste and cut your costs.

  • As part of your managed print solution, implement software that requires employees to enter a passcode or ID number before printing.

  • Eliminate personal desktop printers and opt for a centralized multifunction system that can handle multiple tasks for many employees. Personal printers tend to encourage unnecessary print jobs and paper waste.

  • Installing tracking software as part of your business-wide managed print services is a great way to know who is printing, how often they are printing, and on which devices. Having hard data on print practices helps pinpoint areas of waste and potential improvement.

  • As mentioned already, managed print services are the most comprehensive way to create overall print costs savings while reducing waste. MPS can manage and optimize your entire print fleet, including printers, copiers, scanners, and more.
