If you're looking for ways to cut down on your printing costs, here are some ink-saving tips:
Print in draft mode.
When you print in draft mode, your printer will use less ink. This mode is ideal for documents that don't need to be printed in high quality, such as drafts or school assignments.
Print in grayscale.
If you're printing a document that doesn't need to be in color, you can save ink by printing in grayscale. Even when you're printing documents that are black and white, some printers will use color ink to produce a sharper image. By printing in grayscale, you can ensure that your printer only uses black ink.
Change your printer settings.
When printing photos, you can reduce the amount of ink used by changing the printer settings. Try reducing the quality or printing fewer pictures on each page.
Use the print preview feature.
Before printing, use the print preview feature to see how your document will look when printed. This will allow you to make changes before potentially having to print multiple versions, saving you lots of ink, time and money.
Select an ink-friendly typeface.
Some fonts use more ink than others. When you're printing a document, try selecting an ink-friendly typeface such as Century Gothic or Calibri. These fonts use less ink than other fonts, making them ideal for documents that will be printed in large quantities
