  1. Reduce Your Printing Costs Reduce your overall departmental printing costs thru user education and simple, easy to use printing techniques. Rebecca Goodman Todd Klingaman Adam Re Office of Information Technology Hardware Support

  2. How much does Princeton University really print? Reducing Your Printing Costs

  3. How much does Princeton University really print? Last year, 10,632,117 sheets of paper were printedin the libraries and OIT clusters. Reducing Your Printing Costs

  4. How much does Princeton University really print? Last year, 10,632,117 sheets of paper were printedin the libraries and OIT clusters. If stretched end-to-end, these pages would stretch for 1,845.85 miles. This distance is two-thirds the width of the United States, twice the distance from London to Rome, and three times the distance between Princeton and Kalamazoo, Michigan. A ream of paper sits two inches tall and contains 500 sheets of paper. This much paper would be over 3,544 feet tall when stacked. Reducing Your Printing Costs

  34. Reducing Paper Usage • Use “Uniprint” to manage printing on departmental printers. • Departments can put networked printers on Uniprint, a print management system that keeps track of each print job. Currently, OIT and the Library use Uniprint to manage public printing stations. With Uniprint reports you can monitor who is printing and how much. Uniprint also has optional print release stations that allow you to print confidential material and reduce unnecessary printing. • Any department interested in using Uniprint should • send email to clusters@princeton.edu Reducing Your Printing Costs

  35. Reducing Toner Usage Reducing Your Printing Costs

  36. Reducing Toner Usage • Print in ‘Draft’ or ‘Econo’  mode. This reduces the amount of toner applied to the paper. Reducing Your Printing Costs

  40. Printing Efficiently Reducing Your Printing Costs

  41. Printing Efficiently • Larger, high volume printers are more cost effective than smaller desktop models. Sharing larger, high volume printers is more cost effective than having many small printers.  As a rule of thumb, the smaller the printer, the higher the price per page (ppp).  Departments can save money by discouraging the use of small printers on each desk and, instead, having larger centralized printers. Walk a few extra steps to pick up output – and save money! Reducing Your Printing Costs

  42. Printing Efficiently • Larger, high volume printers are more cost effective than smaller desktop models. Phaser 3124 desktop 3.0¢ per page Phaser 5500 workgroup .85 ¢ per page The Phaser 3124 costs 353% more than the Phaser 5500 to print a single sheet. Reducing Your Printing Costs

  43. Printing Efficiently • Larger, high volume printers are more cost effective than smaller desktop models. Sharing larger, high volume printers is more cost effective than having many small printers.  As a rule of thumb, the smaller the printer, the higher the price per page (ppp).  Departments can save money by discouraging the use of small printers on each desk and, instead, having larger centralized printers. Walk a few extra steps to pick up output – and save money! • B/W prints on color printers are not always inexpensive. Printing in color all the time is expensive. Use black and white as the default print mode or use grayscale. If you print color all the time, or black and white, your consumable costs may not change . While using less toner is good, there is still a higher b/w cost associated with color printers. Reducing Your Printing Costs

  44. Printing Efficiently • B/W prints on color printers are not always inexpensive. Color printing B/W printing The same file printed in both color and b/w. In this example, the color prints on the Phaser 6130 are about 10.6 cents each, while the b/w prints are 3 cents. The black and white prints are still about 3 times more as expensive as printing on a monochrome printer. Even though it is black and white, it is still expensive. Reducing Your Printing Costs

  45. Printing Efficiently • Larger, high volume printers are more cost effective than smaller desktop models. Sharing larger, high volume printers is more cost effective than having many small printers.  As a rule of thumb, the smaller the printer, the higher the price per page (ppp).  Departments can save money by discouraging the use of small printers on each desk and, instead, having larger centralized printers. Walk a few extra steps to pick up output – and save money! • B/W prints on color printers are not always inexpensive. Printing in color all the time is expensive. Use black and white as the default print mode or use grayscale. If you print color all the time, or black and white, your consumable costs Amy not change . While using less toner is good, there is still a higher b/w cost associated with color printers. • Inkjet printers vs. color laser printers. While inkjet printers tend to be initially very inexpensive, the cost of the cartridges make the cost per print deceivingly high. Laser printers have a higher initial cost, but the cost per print is significantly lower. Reducing Your Printing Costs

  46. Printing Efficiently • Inkjet printers vs. color laser printers. The Lexmark X6650 inkjet costs 287% more than the Phaser 7760 laser to print a single sheet. Reducing Your Printing Costs
