SPRING GROVE, IL--(Marketwire - Jan 23, 2013) - January is a great time for businesses to look at last year's expenses to see where they can save money. Cartridge World, one of the world's largest printer cartridge retailers, is helping office managers find new ways to save hundreds of dollars throughout the year on office supplies.
"We are always helping customers save money on printing," says Tom McLaughlin, Marketing Director for Cartridge World North America. "We know how difficult it is for businesses to succeed, because we're business owners, too."
A few easy tips to help business owners save hundreds on printing costs include:
1. Buy two kinds of copy paper. When printing internal office documents, use inexpensive recycled paper stock. Save high-quality paper for the important documents. Then set your printer setting/preference for automatic double-sided printing.
2. Small businesses can save $1,000 to $2,000 per year if they buy eco-friendly ink and toner printer cartridges. Cartridge World's high-yield printer cartridges cost as much as 40 percent less than OEM ink and toner. McLaughlin added, "Businesses can easily trim $100, $200 or more off their budget every month by using remanufactured printer cartridges. You can estimate your savings with Cartridge World's online calculator."
3. Match your office printing needs with the right printer. Inexpensive printers are seldom the best deal. $100-and-less printers can actually cost a fortune in the long run. The real cost (for printing supplies) can be as much as three to five times the price of the printer in the first year alone. Ask your local Cartridge World store which printers use high-yield ink and toner cartridges and match your actual printing needs to get the best deal. Buying a factory-refurbished printer can also save hundreds. Plus, some factory-refurbished printers offer better warranties than new printer warranties.
4. Use online postage. It saves the time and expense of going to the post office. The fee for service is often less costly than the mileage and time to drive there. Unlike postage meters, there is no extra equipment to purchase or rent. You only need a computer, a printer and a scale with ounces.
Cartridge World is your local office printing expert. The company sells more than 3,000 different printer cartridges for home and office printers, copiers and fax machines. Plus, every printer cartridge is 100-percent guaranteed. Most stores offer free local delivery for business customers.
