On the heels of a Consumer Reports study that found many printers waste ink on
non-printing functions, local business owner Norman Sobin of Cartridge
World - New Providence is offering five simple solutions to help consumers
and businesses lower their cost to print.

1. Buy efficient printer models. Consumer Reports found that “plenty of
[inkjet] models delivered half or less of their ink to the page, and a few
managed no more than 20 to 30 percent” when the printer was used
intermittently. Read the study or visit Cartridge World - New Providence
to find an efficient printer.
2. Buy printers that accept high-volume ink cartridges. Many cartridges
contain very little ink and need to be replaced frequently. For example,
an HP 60XL cartridge contains a half ounce of ink while an HP 950XL
cartridge contains 2.5 ounces, according to Consumer Reports.
3. Choose printers that accept remanufactured cartridges. When customers
purchase remanufactured cartridges from Cartridge World - New Providence,
for example, they save up to 30 percent over new name-brand ink and toner
cartridge prices.
4. Do not remove ink or toner until the printer stops printing. Even if
“low” or “out of ink or toner” warnings are displayed, there is likely
enough ink or toner remaining to print additional pages.
5. Use software programs such as PrintEco to reduce unnecessary pages.
