Running out of paper at the office can be at best a hassle, and at worst a disaster, especially when you need it for a client meeting or a presentation. In addition, with paper getting more and more expensive, many small businesses can't afford to waste it, making it a growing concern to save on printer paper in any way you can.
In this printware.co.uk post, we will be taking a look at how to save on printer paper, so you never find yourself without!
Print on both sides
Almost all modern printers have an option for duplex printing, and the function really will help you to save a few sheets for when you need them most. By printing on both sides of the page, you not only help the environment by wasting less paper, you also take a step towards reducing your overall printing costs.
Only print what you need
In this digital age, almost everything can be kept safe and secure on a computer, and keeping a digital copy of certain things may be your answer to saving on printer paper. Whilst there will still be times you need to print out contracts and other important documents, keep what you can in digital format. This process will also help to keep everything secure because you can lock it on your computer, reducing the risk of losing important documents. You should also keep everything backed up on a memory stick, just in case; this way, you have everything to hand, ready for when you need it.
Stock up on what you need
Although it may leave you a little out of pocket to begin with, it is better to purchase exactly what you need in the right quantities at the beginning of each month. In addition to printer cartridges, almost all of your printer essentials can be bought in bulk when you have the cash to spare, usually around the beginning of each calendar month. Stocking up this way helps you to avoid a shortfall in the middle or at the end of the month, when things could be a little tighter.
