It really is that simple! This is how you do it.

Set defaults on computers

1. Make double-sided printing the default setting. Only print one-sided when absolutely necessary.

2. Print double-sided bills, applications, licences, and other paper-intensive documents.

3. If your printer cannot print double-sided, check to see if it can be fitted with a duplexing unit.

4. When a print command is issued, display “rethink” messages on the screen.

Change your computer’s default settings so that you can put more text on each page.

1. In MS Word, go to “File”, then “Page Setup”. Then click “Reduce Margins” to reduce your margins to lower numbers. You could save up to 14% on paper when compared to the default settings!

2. When printing, reduce the font size to 10 points in order to save paper.

Post in-house reminders about efficient paper use near the copy machine and/or each workstation

1.When copying or printing, use both sides of the sheet of paper.

2.Use the “Print Selection” function to print only the pages you require.

3.For archival purposes and where possible, print documents 2-UP or 4-UP per page. Customized software can improve your printer’s document-per-page capabilities.

4.Minimize margins.

5.To avoid copying errors, use the print preview function before printing any word or excel document.

6.Reduce the number of pages printed by using a small font size.

7.Utilize efficient fonts such as Times New Roman or Arial. These fonts take up a lot less room.

Making these changes will have a significant impact on your company’s bottom line. You will not only save money by reducing the amount of paper used by your copiers, but you will also help to reduce waste. Millions of individual pieces of paper are discarded each year.
Many are only used once. Using this guide can help you save up to 50% on copier machine costs and waste.
