5 Tips to Save Copier Toner and Printer Ink

Printer Ink and copier toner are so valuable, the cost is often an influential factor when determining what kind of printer or multifunction printer (MFP) to purchase. Fortunately, there are a few things you can do to help reduce the amount of ink and toner you use.

In this article, we’ll reveal some helpful tips to save toner, and also show you a few other ways you can cut your copying and printing costs.

How to save money on Printer ink and toner

1. Use toner save mode when appropriate.

Many modern printers have a “Toner Save” or “EconoMode” setting that reduces the amount of toner used for the print. Using this feature can really save toner… in some cases by up to 50 percent. 

2. Print Preview

Print preview is a tool used to examine documents before they are printed. In the print preview, you can see if there are spaces that need to be adjusted and if any of the pages in the document are unnecessary to print. Print preview allows you to decide if something is relevant and useful before printing, ensuring you only print what you need.

3. Draft Mode

Draft mode is a tool that allows documents to be printed with little to no formatting. The printed document will be a “test version” of your final copy. It allows you to see what your final printed document will look like while saving ink.

4. Use Color Ink Only When Necessary

Printing in black and white only uses your black cartridge. When you print black using color ink cartridges, colors are mixed together to make black. So, using black and white printing instead of color printing helps your ink last longer.

5. Change your Font and Save on Copier Toner

Different fonts use different amounts of ink to print, so using the right fonts can help you use less ink and save money. According to Patrick Austin in Consumer Reports Fonts such as Century Gothic, Times New Roman, and Calibri use less ink than Veranda, Arial, and Tahoma. According to Consumer Reports, Times New Roman takes up to 27% less ink than Arial. Choosing typefaces that use less ink to print will help extend the life of your ink and toner and save you money.

All these tips are little things you can do to cut cost and increase your toner and ink life.
