How Mass Printing Can Reduce Printer Ink Levels

2010-07-24

In years past many documents would be printed by businesses and then distributed in hardcopy to the clients and employees who might require them. Now, in our more technologically driven world, this is not so much the case. Now, many files, forms and documents are available online or via email and it is up to individuals to print them for themselves using their own home computer and printer. This can be very convenient because it saves time, money and paper. Instead of having to request forms by phone or mail, or actually drive to locations and request them in person, these forms are now available immediately which can speed many different processes up immensely. Of course, one of the downsides to this system is the fact that a person's printer ink levels can drop considerably faster than they used to. Since mass printing is occurring at a much faster rate, ink cartridges get emptied and toner gets used up much faster, creating another expense for the individual.

Printer ink cartridges have a set number of pages that they can print. Most pages tend to use up the same amount of ink on average and the rate that a person uses their ink is usually fairly constant. However, when a person prints at a faster rate, the printer is printing more pages of text than normal and therefore using up more ink than normal. While an ink cartridge in the past might have lasted for four to six months, it may now last for only a couple months because the person is using his personal home computer and printer for mass printing to print out many more necessary documents and files than before.

It is of course necessary at this point to buy printer ink cartridges and toner more often than before which can be an unwanted expense. However there are many different services that help to alleviate the high cost of printer ink and toner. There are certain cartridges that can be refilled manually so you don't have to buy a new set of ink cartridges and toner each time your printer ink levels drop and you run out. These refill kits are usually an injection system and fairly simple to use. They will of course come with directions for use and all the necessary components. Another option is to buy recycled and refurbished ink cartridges and toner. Since these are cheaper for companies to manufacture they sell them to consumers at discounted prices so you can save money on your printing costs. It can be very easy to utilize the efficiency of new technologies to save money when mass printing.
