How to Save Printer Ink

How to Save Printer Ink

Does an ink cartridge ever last as long as you think it should? We feel your pain, but we do have a few tips that can make your precious ink go further.

Not too long ago, a middle school student found when he was doing his science project that by changing his font from Times New Roman to Garamond, he used less ink. The reason for that is Garamond prints at a smaller size. It might be harder to read, but it will save you money over the long, long run.

Another hint along these same lines is to print more than one page on each print-out page. This is easy to do by clicking on the dropdown menu next to “pages per sheet” in the options for your printer.

Justin Ferris, writing for Komando, says there is another font that you can use that will save more money than Garamond. The font is called EcoFont. Each letter has tiny holes so it uses 25% less ink, but it remains easy to read.

Tweaking your printer’s settings is another way to get the bang for your buck. Sandra Vogel, writing for PCWorld, says there are settings on most printers that allow you to adjust ink density or fiddle with output quality.

Another PCWorld hint is to purchase a quality printer. Tony Hoffman says that ink costs are inversely proportional to a printer’s price. Do your research and make sure you are getting a printer that has the capability to bring your per-page printing costs down.
