printing comparison


There are two main types of printers on the market: laser and inkjet. If you print a lot, a laser printer can be more cost-effective in the long run because toner is cheaper than ink. On the other hand, inkjet printers are better for printing documents that are less graphically complex.

Ink/Toner Subscription Plan

Many printer manufacturers offer ink or toner subscription plans. These plans allow you to purchase a certain amount of ink or toner and then, once it runs out, your printer will order replacement cartridges automatically. The price you pay varies depending on how much ink or toner you use and the number of pages you print each month.

Screen Printing Pricing

Because of the volume-based nature of screen printing, it’s important to offer discounts for large quantity orders. Most print shops want to get as many jobs as possible, so this is an excellent way to make money.

Keeping track of your printing costs can help you identify areas where you can save. You should start by calculating your current cost-per-print. You can do this manually or with a software program. In addition, it’s important to keep track of your printer’s maintenance and cleaning costs. These expenses are often buried in your printing budget, but they can be very significant and can add up to 3 percent of your company’s total revenue.
