Black Ink Still Provides Crisp Copy
Individuals who only sparingly print in colour may be able to get by with a model that only requires black printer ink, especially because of recent developments, it has been suggested.
A contributor to If It Prints, I'll Let You Know has explained that just because something can be printed using coloured ink, this does not mean that it has to be. It is stated that on occasions using black and white printer ink could actually add something to a hard copy and that avoiding purchasing a colour printer could lead to a substantial financial saving.
The contributor said: "In a residence such as ours that houses a triumvirate of grad students, we have come up with a decision that old-school black and white works best for us. After all, the black-and-white of today is crisp and clear and still a far cry from the dot matrix prints of yesterday."
It was added that at any time when a colour print out is essential then a visit is paid to a library or another location to complete the job.
Research carried out by Lexmark recently found that more employees are more considerate in terms of paper and ink wastage when printing in colour rather than black and white.
