Running a business can be costly, so naturally you want to save money wherever possible. Printing and photocopying may become expensive if not managed properly, so here are a few ways you can ease that financial burden without compromising on quality:
Using both sides
One of the easiest changes your business can make is printing using both sides of the page. It sounds simple, but by using both sides you’ll halve the money you spend on paper as well as speeding up printing times.
Though usually more expensive than their inkjet counterparts, investing in a laser printer is likely to save you money in the long-term. Inkjet printers rely on a regular supply of ink, and the need to constantly refill your printer can be costly and frustrating.
Laser printers are also typically quicker and more reliable than inkjet printers, so if you’re looking to make your business as efficient as possible, a laser printer is the best choice.
Quality over quantity
If you’re getting through a lot of paperwork, it might be tempting to invest in a fleet of cheap printers, fax machines and photocopiers to spread the workload. The problem with this is that you can end up spending a fortune on ink, toner and maintenance. A better idea is to buy one or two top-quality multifunctional devices (MFDs), which can perform all the same tasks from one location.
Top-of-the-range printing equipment can be expensive, and paying a large sum up front may not be ideal for you and your business. Leasing can help to ease the cost, as well as providing you access to printing technology that might otherwise be above your budget.
