The Leaflet Printing Guides That Save The Environment

Going green is one global goal which offices and homes should comply with in order to achieve a better world to live in. As much as possible, there is a need for us to strive harder in ensuring that energy and resources are saved whenever we do our activities. Leaflets printing is something indispensable I almost all business offices. Leaflets are essential in physically reaching out to potential customers and allowing your company to reveal what good it can offer to them.

Sustainable Practices in the Work Environment

There are a lot of things we can do to save Mother Earth from depletion. Here are a few guides for office staff and managers to not only save money but also ensure that lesser risks are posed to the environment:

· Print on two sides of the paper. Whether it is leaflets printing or just plain document printing, the idea is for you to utilize the other side to save paper, ink and money. Most updated printers already allow for automatic prints on each side. These multifunction printers can be availed inexpensively and will even help you in saving your costs and energy.


· Take advantage of the internet. Why opt for papers when you can actually use the internet and send documents in matters of seconds? Document distribution can be done online and it will definitely be more convenient even for the recipients.

· Recycle the papers. Use scratch papers for drafts which do not require a lot of formality. The Paper Industry Association Council is pushing for 60% of paper recovery which can be attained if we all allot a recycle desk where used papers can be reused for other purposes. One office can cut these papers and use the other side as note pads.

· Manage your printer settings. For some leaflets printing purposes, customer-intended materials and presentations, you are really required to print with the best quality. But for those ordinary documents like letters and memos, opt for the draft option to save some ink.

· Return cartridges and toner bottles. If you have no idea on how to use these materials, better bring them back to the manufacturer. Some of them are willing to pay for an extra cost which might not be as much as new ones but at least you earn a little from your garbage.

Some Facts You Should Know About your Printer

We all know that the printer and the ink are a big portion of leaflets printing cost. The facts below are intended to make you aware of certain truths about these materials to guide you in using them for your printing purposes:

· Some inkjet cartridge printers to do not indicate an accurate ink level. Some of the printer’s hips may wrongly display the ink levels and will prompt you to replace the cartridge or buy a new one. In this case, reset the computer chip to refresh it and allow more truthful indication of ink levels.

· Toner cartridges can be recycled more than three times. This means that you can take back those cartridges you placed on the garbage bins and have them refilled in your nearest ink shops.

· Laser printers use three times power more than what your desktop is consuming. A desktop basically uses up to a maximum of 300 watts while a laser printing consumes about 700 watts. Turn off your printers when not in use.
