Five Ways to Save on Printer Ink and Toner

Cartridge World Offers Simple Tips for Affordable Printing

SPRING GROVE, IL - (Marketwired - Aug 28, 2013) - On the heels of a Consumer Reports study that found many printers waste ink on non-printing functions, Cartridge World is offering five simple solutions to help consumers and businesses lower their cost to print.

1. Buy efficient printer models. Consumer Reports found that "plenty of [inkjet] models delivered half or less of their ink to the page, and a few managed no more than 20 to 30 percent" when the printer was used intermittently. Read the study or visit a Cartridge World store to find an efficient printer.

2. Buy printers that accept high-volume ink cartridges. Many cartridges contain very little ink and need to be replaced frequently. For example, an HP 60XL cartridge contains a half ounce of ink while an HP 950XL cartridge contains 2.5 ounces, according to Consumer Reports.

3. Choose printers that accept remanufactured cartridges. When customers purchase remanufactured cartridges from Cartridge World, for example, they save up to 30 percent over new name-brand ink and toner cartridge prices.

4. Do not remove ink or toner until the printer stops printing. Even if "low" or "out of ink or toner" warnings are displayed, there is likely enough ink or toner remaining to print additional pages.

5. Use software programs such as PrintEco to reduce unnecessary pages. Download it free at http://www.cartridgeworld.com/PrintEco.

"Cartridge World franchisees are home and office printing pros. They provide solutions to help customers save hundreds on printing costs every year," said Tom McLaughlin, Cartridge World marketing director. "These simple printing tips save money and help limit impacts to the environment by reducing waste sent to landfills."

The company sells remanufactured and eco-friendly cartridges for home and office printers, copiers and fax machines.
