Lower Your Costs with Efficient Printing Practices

November 7, 2011 | By | Reply More

It’s possible to reduce costs without using low quality products, by adopting more efficient printing practices.

When running an ambitious growing business, keeping running costs low is always a priority.  Naturally you may start to consider options to get the same results for less and begin looking at cheaper printing products, such as lower quality paper, using compatibles or even switching to cheaper printer models.  However, it’s possible to reduce costs without using low quality products, by adopting more efficient printing practices.

Effective Design
Reconsider the design of any standard templates.  Removing one colour or image from the document could save a great deal when printed out repeatedly.  Logos are often very effective with just a small amount of colour; review the design of yours to eradicate any superfluous colour.

Print Smarter
Duplex printers can be used to reduce paper consumption and are a greener, cheaper way of printing.  Set computers to print duplex as standard.  Click here to use the Brother ‘duplex calculator’ to find out how much you could save.

Booklet printing in an A5 format on the HL-5350DN, can reduce paper costs by 75%.

Use booklet printing instead of huge documents to convey information about your business.  Use a printer such as the Brother HL-5350DN which allows booklet printing in an A5 format, which can reduce paper costs by 75%.

Configure the Printers Settings for Efficiency
Reducing running costs is a huge priority for start up businesses but, busy employees might not have printing costs at the fore of their minds.

Some of Brother’s multifunction printers allow you to restrict access to certain functions, by allowing users access to just some of the features.  The secure function lock feature allows an administrator to configure users and passwords so only authorised users have the full access to all of the product’s capabilities, helping to control how the printers are being used, and thereby controlling costs.  This is perfect in an open-plan office environment.
