Multifunction Printer Tips: Consider Color

color printing with multi function printer

In today's day and age, many companies worry that being able to print and copy in color is a luxury. They feel that color copiers and multifunction printers will be more expensive to purchase and maintain, and that consumables will cost even more. That's fair--but today we're here to add some new points to the conversation, so don't give up on color printing just yet!

Important Color Considerations

The truth about multifunction printers is that they put a whole lot of new things within your reach--including color printing. How is this possible? Well, multifunction printers address the real issue: not "do we need to print in color," but "can we print in color without wasting too much money?" The good news is that, with the right multifunction printer and a few helpful considerations, it's possible--and easy--to find ways of printing in color without bruising your budget. Let's take a look!

#1: Find the right machine.

The biggest thing to consider when it comes to color printing is the machine itself. Some machines, especially single-function laser printers, cost an outrageous amount in disposable ink cartridges alone--so make sure you choose a multifunction device that can do everything at an affordable price.

#2: Control your habits.

Whether you're aware of them or not, bad habits can make color printing way more expensive. To make sure you're on top of color usage, implement account tracking software that will let employees know when they're using too much color (and let you know if they're making unauthorized color prints). Cutting down on bad habits can make color printing much more affordable.

#3: Weigh the benefits.

The thing about color printing is that just having it as an in-house option actually saves you money. Outsourcing your necessary color prints can get pretty expensive pretty fast--so being able to control your prints in-house is a huge burden lifted.

You don't have to give up on color printing because it's expensive. Instead, contact us today for help finding solutions that will bring the color back to your business!
