Businesses with a focus on money saving when looking for a new printer have been told that they should consider the cost of printing each page, rather than how many millimetres of ink they get from each cartridge.

According to ITWebPro, Mark Hiller, the managing director of Lexmark, explains that it can be misleading to base a decision solely on the suggested amount of ink a person will get from each printer cartridge.

He highlights that much will come down to the exact printer the ink cartridge is being used in and a greater emphasis should be placed on cost cutting in other areas.

The publication reports that Mr Hiller said: "From a consumer perspective, you have to consider the cost per page. When buying a printer, see whether it gives you the functionality you need, and weigh up what the costs are going to be going forward.

"There are a number of concerns consumers have to take into account when considering the cost of printing."

It was revealed earlier this year that businesses could make their printer ink last longer by using the Century Gothic font rather than Arial or Times New Roman.
