Ink consumption 101

Printer is equals to ink. Each one is dependent on the other. They need each other to be able to work.

That is why it is important to pay very close attention to the inks you are consuming. The best way to do it is to educate yourself on the best way to maintain and make them last longer.

Be aware of the number of pages an ink will print. You can get this from the printer manufacturer itself. When you know the appropriate number of print pages, you will know your limitation.

Consider black ink. Black inks are fine if they are just for text prints. Colors are better off saved for graphics, drawings or other presentations. Besides, black ink are less expensive compared to colored inks.

Use ink saving modes. These are the draft mode. Most computers have this function available. This is your best option if you are printing a lot of not so important documents. There is no use in using colored inks when you will just dispose of it later on.

Education and practicality is the key to ink consumption. There is no other way to do it.
