As we do more, print more and commit to more, productivity is of the utmost concern. The following tips can help you take advantage of your time more effectively, so you can get more done throughout the day.
  1. Do not wait around twiddling your thumbs. If it takes 10 minutes for a print job to process or your computer to boot up, do something else to fill in the gap.
  2. Need additional copies? Don’t print one at a time, when you select print choose “Number of Copies” at first click.
  3. Look at your printer’s default settings, you do not need to print every draft or document on high quality. High quality not only uses more ink, it also takes longer to print.
  4. If you are printing more than one copy of a multiple page document, check the option to Collate. This keeps each set of pages together, so you do not have to manually sort the pages later.
  5. How much time do you spend purchasing supplies? Clickinks.com makes every attempt to make ordering ink a quick process, however you will always save time by stocking up. Instead of purchasing 1 black ink cartridge now, 1 magenta cartridge next month, another black ink cartridge the following month and so on, save your self some time and money by purchasing super saver combo packs.
  6. Prepare by batching tasks. Is there something else you will need to print? Get it done while you are in print mode, especially if you are in a wireless setting where you walk else where to printer.
  7. Have something on your flash drive, memory card or phone to print? Try a direct route, often you can plug directly into your printer instead of wasting time shuffling the same file via multiple media platforms.
These tips will save you some time, maxing productivity … and who doesn’t need that!

HP Printer Ink More Costly Than Human Blood














Are you sick to death of the outrageous prices HP charge for their original black ink cartridges? You might avoid paying through the nose by purchasing from a remanufactured ink vendor. Or, if you’re hopelessly attached to the contents of the wallet, you might print documents with your own blood.

This, according to a bar chart created by Clementine at ReflectionOf.Me, is almost half the price of HP black ink # 45. All you need is an emptied ink cartridge and a blood donor pack. That woozy sensation you’re feeling as you fill the cartridge? That, dear reader, is what saving feels like - glorious, glorious savings.

Looking for details before you undertake this (admittedly drastic) procedure? HP’s black ink retails for $0.70 per mL, as opposed to $0.40 per mL for human blood. Need some liquid courage before you start? That’s no problem, because according to the bar chart, vodka retails for almost nothing. And if the whole thing goes wrong and you find yourself in the hospital – that’s okay too, because penicillin is only $0.05 per mL.

So get printing – and who knows? Before long HP might unveil its new ‘Vampire’ series.

Reduce the cost of printing - Paper Saving Tips

Paper Saving Tips
  • Print on Both Sides: Whether you are printing or making copies, you can cut your paper (& paper costs) usage in half by simply selecting to print on both sides. Some printers offer a “duplex” feature, even if yours does not you can simply print your odd numbered pages first (beginning with your first page), then flip around the pages and print the even pages on the other side (beginning with page 2).
  • Print two pages on each side: Another money saving feature that you can select is to print columns. No matter what type of printer you have, Microsoft Word has this print option. If printing from another program, you can simply reduce the size of your images or font, allowing you to fit more on each page.
  • Also, when you are printing, or receiving paper that is one sided, you can reuse the other side so that there is not as much waste.
  • Think before you buy. You can save money by purchasing your paper in bulk. Purchasing bulk paper and bulk ink ahead of time will also limit last minute purchases where you will settle for any price. Recycled paper, which can be purchased in the same price range as non-recycled paper, is also a great solution for our environment.
These tips will not only save you money, but also reduce the deforestation and piling up of landfills.
