Laser printer ink saving tips

I spent most of the time to surf the Internet. I came across many web pages, which I find useful. Usually I take printouts of these web pages to use them for my later work. As heavy printer user, I had been in search of printer tips, which could save my money. Ultimately I was seeking software for printers that would save the printer ink. But I found the following useful tips to save the printer ink I hope you too will find it interesting.

Select specific parts of your document, so you don't have to print it entirely. This can obviously be helpful in saving ink. To do this, simply select the area or the part of the document you want to print. Now, in the print dialog box just choose Selection in under the Page range. Now your printout won't have banner ads or pictures that are of no use to you. Many times it happens that you want to print at a lower resolution to save ink, or you want to print on both sides on the paper.

Various printers offer different types of printing options, which you can use to suit your printing needs. Let's take a look at some of these options. Many printers also offer some kind of toner or ink saving mode, which lets you print really fast using much lesser ink. This is especially useful for printing drafts or rough copies of long documents.

The printer dialog box lets you print specific pages in a document, or a specific range of pages. You can also print multiple copies of the same document if you want. For more options you can click on the Properties button. This will let you do many things, such as select the resolution at which you want to print. A higher resolution uses more ink but gives better quality, and vice versa.

You can also choose to print on both sides of the paper, which come in handy for things such as manuals or books. You can choose the size of your printing media, if you, say, want to print on envelopes or postcards. You can also change the orientation of your printout, so you can print in portrait or landscape mode.
