Tips For Affordable Printing

Save Money When Printing

With companies trying to cut costs and consumers also looking to save we here at Cartridge World also try to help our customers to save even more money.  We put together some tips for more affordable printing:

1) When purchasing a new printer get one that accepts high-volume ink cartridges.  Many cartridges actually contain very little ink so would need frequent replacement.  A comparison for you…According to Consumer Reports the HP 950 XL ink cartridge contains 2.5 ounces where as the HP 60 XL cartridge a half ounce of ink, so you can see a considerable difference!

2) Do not remove the ink or toner cartridge until the printer actually stops printing.  Even if you receive “low ink” or “low toner” messages on your machine there is likely enough ink or toner still in the cartridge to squeeze out some additional pages.

3) Use software programs such as Print Eco.  This type of program will actually reduce unnecessary pages.  Consumers can download it free from this link:

4) Efficient printer models – look for these types of printers.  According to Consumers Reports plenty of inkjet models delivered half or less of their ink to the page and a few used less than 30 percent when the printer was used intermittently.

5) Purchase a printer that accepts manufactured ink and or toner cartridges – cash in on the savings.  You could be saving up to 30% less by purchasing re-manufactured ink or toner.

We really encourage consumers to think smarter when trying to cut costs for their office supplies.  We hope these tips help and as always please call us should you have questions on your ink or toner and how you can save.


Printer Ink & Paper

Maximize Your Ink While Still Keeping Quality

Halloween candy is officially on the store shelves!  This means holidays are around the corner, exciting news for consumers who are printing party invitations, holiday cards, photos from 2013 and anything else.

If you don’t want to waste lots of ink and paper while making sure your holiday cards or party invites look right once printed we recommend printing on cheap photocopy paper.  Using other types of paper will get expensive especially if you have many changes to make.

Printer ink can also be conserved using photocopy paper.  Another tip is to set your printer in the “multi-page” printing mode so several pages can be printed on one sheet of paper.  Doing this will save you on reams of paper.  Many people think printing double sided copies will also save on ink and paper.  This is a myth.  Printing double sided copies can actually stress your printer.  It can lead to mediocre print quality, a jammed printer and ultimately be an expensive experience.

This holiday season we encourage consumers to look for recycled paper.  Most business supply stores carry at least one brand of recycled paper.  Sometimes there is card stock paper that is recycled and of course shopping at Cartridge World Orlando for all your printer ink needs will certainly help our environment.

Don’t Fill the Landfill with Empty Cartridges

Landfills cost a lot to maintain and when more material ends up there, costs rise. The oil that is used to produce plastic is costly as well. By recycling cartridges, less oil is used and less money spent to maintain landfills or build new ones after they fill. With Cartridge World, it’s easy to recycle your old cartridges and cheaper NOT to throw them away when they’re empty.

All you have to do is bring your empties to Cartridge World and we’ll swap them for already filled ones of the same brand. We take your empties and will have our professionals refill them. It’s that easy.

Also, there’s no waiting for you and it saves you money.

A TIP from Cartridge World

Here’s an important tip: never let a cartridge run out of ink completely. Your inkjet will burn out if it continues to fire while the supply of ink is cut off. Always have a replacement cartridge on hand. If the cartridge is showing “empty,” have it refilled or replaced immediately. Let Cartridge World know what kind you need, and we’ll help you keep stocked up on ink.
