3 Ways To Reserve Ink For Pitney Bowes Ink And Toner Cartridges

2011-09-08

Replacing your Pitney Bowes ink and toner cartridges is a necessary expense. Every business has a different flow of work and different printing needs and costs. However, almost all can reserve ink and cut costs simply by implementing a few easy steps into the daily routine.

It's possible to save a significant amount of ink by printing out only the final version of a document. Printing too many versions of the same document may be the hardest habit to break. Some waste ink by printing out every draft and this is not necessary. Use the print preview function on the computer and save the printing for the final draft only. It's possible to do all the editing necessary and see what the final version of a document will look like right from the computer screen. If this simple change is made, not only will there be a savings on ink and toner cartridges, but a savings on paper as well. If a test draft must be made, then make sure to use the draft mode for printing it out; this will use less ink.

There are times when printing will reserve ink in a Pitney Bowes ink and toner cartridge. Sometimes a business or individual will do less printing than usual. Inactivity can allow ink to dry in a cartridge and become clogged. To avoid this, make sure to print a test page on days when the printer isn't run; just make it a part of the evening routine. This is a simple way to lengthen the use of a cartridge, as well as saving the time and frustration that a clogged ink cartridge is bound to cause.

Along with printing a test page at the end of a no print day, it is also wise to make sure that the printer is powered down properly. When a printer is turned off from the power button on the printer, the ink cartridges move back into place protecting the cartridge heads from exposure. When the power is turned off abruptly to the printer, the heads are left exposed. This is easy to fix, however, because by simply taking a moment to turn off the printer correctly by use of the on and off button, the ink cartridge heads will be protected. This one practice will help to reserve ink by keeping the heads from drying out.

Make sure to only print when needed, print test pages during periods of inactivity, and use the off button to turn off your computer. Simply by implementing a few good habits into a workday routine, a significant savings will be made in the cost of ink and toner cartridges.
