Cutting your print costs - our Top Ten

Colyer London, 09/06/2016
Did you know that printer ink is more expensive than vintage Champagne, rare whiskey, and Russian caviar? In 2003 Which? magazine stated that color HP cartridges cost over seven times more per millilitre than 1985 Dom Perignon champagne. And not much has changed since.
In a business where hundreds or thousands of pages are being printed each day, those costs are significant. Have a look at our Top Ten ideas on how to reduce printing costs.

 

1. Have the right printer – so the job gets done right, first time, every time. 

2. Use a “follow-me” system to avoid all those unclaimed prints at the end of the day. 

3. Be colour calibrated, rather than printing multiple copies to get the colours right. 

4. Be contract savvy - don’t pay for high volume contracts that you don’t need. 

5. Check your charging - make sure that you are only charged for one A3 print and not two A4s. 

6. See things in black and white - set your printer to print in mono as a default, rather than colour. 

7. Utilisation and efficiency - make sure your printer has more than 98% uptime and is well serviced. 

8. Use a good quality dust free paper to eliminate jamming. 

9. Match your printer to your needs - make sure that it is powerful enough to print your files super-quickly. 

10. Ensure your printers are working hard for you – if you need something stapled or sorted, make sure your printer’s doing it for you.

What's the biggest hurdle in converting your PCs to Mac?

It can’t be security, as Mac is just as secure with full disc encryption, controls over admin privileges and even locking a boot-up to a specific server.
It can’t be set up as it is easier to install, manage and download data onto a new Mac.
It can’t be cost, as the cost of operation is very competitive, with Macs frequently coming out cheaper in the long run.
