Yes, it is possible to instantly cut the amount of paper you use in half, even without changing what you print. Double-sided printing, or as your printer menu might call it, "Duplex Printing," you will use both side of paper. By slicing your paper bill nearly in half, you'll wonder why you didn't use this tip before.

 

All-In-One Printer

Also known as a Multifunction Printer, this device is also able to copy, scan and possibly fax. Now, it isn't going to cut down on the amount of paper you use, but it will free up valuable office real estate. Why have a four different devices when you only need one?

 

Go Digital And Scan

Ditch the copy feature and use scan instead. It works nearly the same as copying, only you create a digital copy instead. Emailing the document instead of printing it can save you thousands of sheets of paper right off the bat.

 

Energy Star Appliances

If you are in the need for a new printer, make sure it has an "Energy Star" label. This way, you know it uses less energy than the alternative models. Plus, you'll find there are plenty of Energy Star appliances capable of handling all your print needs.

 

Check the Efficiency Settings

These are small changes you can make in how the document is printed. First, you can reduce the size of the margins on needed print jobs. You can also set the printer to "draft." This reduces the amount of ink uses while printing, extending the life of the ink cartridge.

 

Network Your Printers

Instead of having multiple printers in the office, connect a single printer to your network.

 

More Paper Trays

With that new printer, consider an option with multiple paper trays. This saves you the time of constantly getting up to fill the printer and improves your business productivity.
