How to Reduce Printing Costs

If you're like most companies, you're looking for ways to reduce the cost of printing. One simple way you can cut printing costs is by taking advantage of Windows' printing defaults.

If you have any color printers in your business, this is a simple step that you and any business manager should take to greatly reduce the use of color toner. You probably don’t notice, but just about everything on your computer is in color. Spreadsheets and PDF’s, all of your email, and everything on the Internet is in color.

Tech Tip: Printer Troubleshooting

One of the most frustrating problems is when your printer won't print from the tray you choose.

This is a problem that usually happens when you are working with a Microsoft Word file that you did not create. Printer tray settings embedded in the Word documents that travel from computer to computer are typically to blame for this frustration.

These print settings within Microsoft Office will override the print driver settings so that no matter what paper source you choose in your print driver, your document will print to the tray specified inside Microsoft Word.
