If you are, your printer may be drinking away your profits! Are you still using desktop printers? If you are, your printer may be drinking away your profits! We all know that printer ink is expensive. Did you know just how expensive? Think of the price of a rather expensive bottle of champagne and double it…it’s that expensive! As the economy stutters to something that resembles growth, many businesses in East Anglia aren’t keeping an eye on how much they are spending on their printer ink.
When you realise that on average, printer ink is more expensive than a bottle of vintage Champagne, you’d probably agree that it’s vitally important to ensure your printer isn’t drinking away your profits. At over £2000 for 750ml of black ink at the supermarket (£22 for 8ml), that’s easily over double the price of a vintage bottle of Champagne! There’s a reason printer ink is called liquid Gold.
Thankfully, for the adventurous there are ways in which to bring down your ink costs. OEM cartridges and cartridge refilling can help reduce costs but there are downsides to these options, which include loss of quality and warranties becoming void if non genuine ink is being used. These options can halve your ink costs but they do have their drawbacks.
Another option is to look at leasing a printer. For a small cost per print you can utilise a multi-functional device which will print, scan and copy, thereby increasing your productivity. The cost per print covers your preventative maintenance, parts, labour and toner. This can slash your costs as well as having the versatility of a machine that can do a whole lot more than your current desktop printer. Also, with a cost per print, you only pay for what you print. (no wasted ink) All you’ll need to do is add the paper. With big savings to be made in time and money and the hassle taken away from you, this is a very good option for many organisations.
