5 Ways to Improve Color Print Quality

Are you trying to figure out if you can save money by printing in black and white?

Trying to justify ordering more color toner cartridges?

What can color printing really do for your business?

Printing documents can help to amplify your marketing and sales, and color printing can further express your brand and the values behind it.

If you’re printing multiple materials per day, you may notice that over time, they gradually lose their luster or don’t look as vibrant as usual. This means your printer may need some maintenance, or that you need to change the way you’re printing to reserve ink.

Here’s our tips for color printing best practices:

  • Consider the paper quality. Lower quality paper may cause the color of your documents to bleed or look dull. Regular copier paper isn’t great quality, so when you print in color, consider photo paper or cardstock.
  • What are your printer settings? Sticking with the default printer settings is normal, but probably won’t work well for color printing. If you’re exclusively printing in color, consider changing the settings to increase the print resolution. Some printers can be changed to a “color mode” which helps optimize color printing.
  • Are you using quality printer cartridges? Like paper, ink and toner quality may vary. Your best bet is to use name brand ink and toner (or OEM), but you can find remanufactured cartridges that are quite reliable. If you have questions or want to make sure you’re not wasting your money, talk to us! We can recommend good toner for your needs.

Use Colors to Attract New Customers!

We have purchased printer ink cartridges from MCS and I believe also copier toner. We have ordered color paper with them in the past. They donate white copy paper to us as a non-profit.
