Tips for Saving Printer Ink

Printing is a routine function for any business, large, medium or small. So you have to ensure that it does not become costly, and, at the same time, is efficient too. Lost time due to printer ink, toner or paper running out and staff having to leave the office premises to get more stock of printer cartridges can impact productivity as well as profit.
