Four Great Tips for Managing Your Printing Costs

Part of running a business is keeping your expenses down. If you have high overhead, it can quickly eat up revenue that would have been profit. One of these expenses is certainly printing costs. Thankfully, there are ways to make your printing expenses more manageable. Below is a list of four ways you can better manage your printing costs. 1. Invest in a Laser Printer and Copier One way to bring down printing costs is by avoiding inkjet printers. It’s no secret. Printer ink, for whatever reason, is exorbitantly expensive and has remained so for decades. Laser printers, on the other hand, use toner. While toner cartridges may not be cheap either, there are many great benefits to toner over ink. It allows for faster printing, and a toner cartridge is able to print far more pages than an ink cartridge. Overall, if you print a lot of pages in your office on a daily basis, you’ll certainly want to go with a laser printer and copier. 2. Print Your Own Labels Another thing you may want to do to better manage your printing costs is to stop outsourcing your print work to third party printing companies. For example, if you need to print out labels for your product, you can do this in your own facilities in exchange for a rather reasonable investment. Simply purchase your own label printer and start printing out the stickers on your own. You’ll find that the job isn’t that difficult and doesn’t require the expertise of an outside company. 3. Take Advantage of Draft Mode One thing many people don’t know about...

How Can 3D Printing Help Your Company

                    3D printing tugs at the imagination. It makes us want to push the envelope a little, push ourselves to see what we can come up with. The options are endless, but the technology hasn’t seemed accessible. Please click here to view 3D printers. As much as we may have dreamed, most schools, small businesses, and healthcare providers don’t have three-dimensional printers. Units were too expensive, or people weren’t sure how to use them. All of that is changing. The technology is ready for the home or office, and a business that embraces it will give itself an edge. In the next three years, the research company Gartner expects the annual amount of money spent on purchasing 3D printers to increase eightfold. As the price of each unit is falling dramatically, this means that there will be a lot more printers in use. That could be a game-changer for some industries. If a competitor can print a model on the spot, clients might get impatient about waiting to have an order sent out. Most companies could benefit in some way from 3D printing. Surgeons have used them to make models of a child’s small heart to study before surgery. 3D print-outs of the next iPhone lets accessory-makers test their newest prototypes – that were also created through additive manufacturing. Costly miscommunications are eliminated when custom orders are printed out in miniature before a life-size creation is made. As the technology becomes more available, we will find more creative and productive ways to utilize it. Many producers of 2D printers have...
