Maximizing the Efficiency of Your Printer.

A printer is one of the most useful gadgets that we attach to a computer. It simple allows us to reproduce things so that we could touch them.  You can use the printer at work to create reports or other professional documents. At home you can use your printer to reproduce pictures or just to print text files. Regardless of the application, there are many useful tips and advices that will enable you to derive maximum benefit from the printer and documents created with the help of it. Whatever printer you would use – laser or ink jet, color or black and white – there are many different ways to get the most out of your printer.

We know that dot-matrix printer cost a lot to buy but there ink is very-very cheap. Also dot-matrix printer can have a longer lifespan compare to other type of printer. The following is some advice on how to maximize the use of a printer especially the ink jet type.

Using the genuine item for your printer parts and supplies is one way to ensure consistently a high quality. It may seem that it is cost-effective to buy toner made of recycled raw, or re-manufactured cartridges, but a comprehensive consideration of factors when making a deal actually saves money in the long term. Also ink residue could build up in the long run inside the printer’s mechanism if you continue to use refilled ink instead of the original ink

Using the original, approved by the manufacturer, consumables and spare parts for equipment increases the reliability and print quality that ultimately allows you to save time, money and effort. Often the original ink cartridges and supplies come with a full guarantee for the entire duration of their application.

It may be that the bulk purchase will save you money because it is often given an additional discount for purchase of multiple quantities of cartridges and other consumables.

It is worth considering how quickly you’ll be using purchased supplies, because the quality of the ink may degrade over time. If you buy multiple cartridges simultaneously, while having some leftovers, do not forget to first expend those that were purchased earlier.

When it comes to ink consumption, among other ways of saving money it may be mentioned the use of the function “draft” on your computer or laptop as long as you’re not ready to print the final document. When you use the “draft” – less ink is spent that helps save money. In the program Microsoft Word “draft” version can be found by selecting the “print” menu “file” and then “print options”.

If you do not print color documents, it makes sense to set up your printer to black and white version of the print, as colored ink is usually more expensive than black. Web sites are often printed with color by default, but if you configure the printer for black and white print, it will save ink and money. If necessary, you can easily switch to color printing.

To check your work, while avoiding the unnecessary printing of documents, you must use the command “Print Preview”. Double-sided printing, when the printer permits such a regime, also saves on paper costs.

Printing of documents only when they are really necessary for you saves money and put into practice the respect for the environment. Try to do the checking and proofreading on screen, printing out, if possible, only the most important final drafts of documents.

This also applies to situations when you need to print one page of a multi-page document: remember that there are the printing options that allow printing only certain pages, so using these functions can extend the lifespan of cartridges for the printer, as well as other minor tweaks.

Nowadays the world has turned into the world of the Internet technologies where computers and printers are its inalienable part. Advantage of this opportunity to save your time and money.
