Several experts have offered their advice on the different ways printer owners can cut down on ink costs.

The BBC spoke to a number of specialists and discovered a range of measures to reduce printer ink spending.

It is known that ink can be extremely costly and printer owners can end up spending hundreds of pounds a year on the liquid.

Lizzy Russles of consumer organisation Which? advised ink cartridge users to look at printers' long-term running costs.

Martin Hurren, business development manager for HP Supplies, added that costs often depend on the technological aspects of printers, so these should be examined.

"A lot of it is down to technology - different technology is used with different cartridges," he said.

"Some of the technology we use requires ink to remain in the cartridge so that the printer head can have a fluid motion and allow ink to pass through the printer when you change the cartridge."
