The Worst Printing Crimes – Are They Happening in Your Office?
Little do most people know about the unspeakable printing crimes that are committed on a daily basis in offices around the globe.
Need some evidence?
Despite everybody seeming to strive for a paperless office, the research and advisory company GARTNER says the amount of paper produced by the average company is actually growing annually at a rate of 25% – far from a trivial offence! Here are the five big printing crimes your company might be committing this very second.
Is Your Company Spending Too Much On Printing?
Preventing Unnecessary Printing
To prevent this type of criminal squander, you can define print profiles, or even restrict specific user profiles to print in black and white only. Also to further save, always print everything except the proof and final in draft mode.
You’ll save a ton of ink (and time) by setting Fast Draft or Draft Mode as the default option in the printer properties, so you won’t ever forget and send a long document to the printer in regular mode.
Don’t forget about software options too – shrink to fit to save that last orphan line from being an extra page.
Double Sided Printing
You may save up to .04 a page by printing everything Duplex or Double Sided. Plus you will save paper – cutting your paper costs in half!
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the average office worker in the US prints 10,000 sheets of paper each year. This is equal to two boxes of paper.
A study at Chico State provided the following:
During the 2008-2009 academic year approximately 12,600 reams of paper were printed using a desktop printer on campus. That is about $63,000 in paper costs per year. If double sided printing is used on campus this amount could be reduced by 50% and about $32,000 could be saved each year.
What could you be saving?
How to Save Money on Printing
Double sided printing saves resources and money.
Remember those days of waiting for a document to print so you can flip it over to print on the other side and wondering if it will it come out upside down and backward. The process of printing double sided has become a lot easier and less time consuming. Default printer settings can be set to duplex printing. Whenever you print, regardless of what program you are printing from or what type of document you are printing, your documents will automatically print on both sides.
And by acquiring the right devices and automatically redirecting certain kinds of documents to the most suitable for the job at hand, you can lower the costs of any MUST HAVE printout.
