Inkjet printers became very popular in 2008; their versatility and efficiency in both small and professional models have kept them on the wish list of many small business owners and family households alike. Because they are lightweight and able to fit on any desk or tabletop, inkjet printers are a popular choice.
If you have or want to buy an inkjet printer, you’ll want to know how to save money on ink cartridges.
How Do Inkjet Printers Work?
The inkjet printer is known for its particular type of printing that sprays ink from tiny nozzles called jets onto the paper.
These ink dots coming out of the printer are extremely small, measuring between 50 and 60 microns in diameter, smaller than the diameter of a human hair!
The print head has several tiny nozzles that place each of the ink dots with impressive precision, mixing the different colors of ink to recreate the desired printout image and text.
Save Money by Reducing Ink Waste
Inkjet printers use some of their ink for internal maintenance. The maintenance cycle keeps the internal printing process running smoothly at all times, but can also waste ink.
There are several tricks to reduce the number of maintenance cycles on your inkjet and, thus, save ink:
Never turn off the printer: a maintenance cycle is triggered every time you turn on the printer, so in addition to taking less time to "wake up," you will save a little ink.
Play with the print quality: Take advantage of the draft mode; consider printing in this mode for text only documents or with images / graphs that are not final versions.
Change cartridges at the right time: Pay attention to your printer ink levels to determine the right time to change the cartridge. If you wait until one color completely runs out, then you waste the rest of the colors on unusable printouts. If you change it right before it runs out, you will take advantage of all the ink in each cartridge.
