As a small business it’s important that you cut back on costs where you can without affecting the popularity or success of your company and without putting any employees or members of staff at risk. One of the best ways for you to cut back on the amount that you spend within your company is to cut back on your printing costs; there are a number of ways in which you can do this, here are a few tips and tricks from the professionals.
#1 – Unnecessary Notes
One of the worst ways in which many businesses waste both their paper and their ink is by printing all of their notes and reminders. What’s so difficult about typing your reminders into your computers calendar or making a note on your phone?
By making electronic notes rather than printing out all of the information you need you could save a lot of money in resources; this is one of the ways in which you can reduce your company’s printing costs.
#2 – Managing Mistakes
Another common mistake that is made by many different people across the UK is that they print their word documents, spreadsheets or Power-points without proofreading them or checking for errors in any way.
Due to this a lot of people print work that is filled with errors and therefore waste paper before editing the work and printing their piece for the second time. This can be incredibly costly if you are printing material for a large group of people.
#3 – Emails and Enquiries
It would be wise for you to send emails to your clients, customers and colleagues rather than wasting paper by printing letters or delivering notes to them; additionally all enquires that your company receives should be processed electronically and reviewed by all members through transferring the data by email.
A lot of paper and ink could be wasted if you begin to print each and every enquiry that your company receives; you could save money in the long run by avoiding this.
There are many other ways in which you can save both paper and ink within your business; although these methods are likely to be specific to your company or the environment that you work in.
