  SPRING GROVE, IL, Jan 23 (Marketwire) -- 
January is a great time for businesses to look at last year's expenses to
see where they can save money. Cartridge World, one of the world's
largest printer cartridge retailers, is helping office managers find new
ways to save hundreds of dollars throughout the year on office supplies. 

    "We are always helping customers save money on printing," says Tom
McLaughlin, Marketing Director for Cartridge World North America. "We
know how difficult it is for businesses to succeed, because we're
business owners, too."

    A few easy tips to help business owners save hundreds on printing costs

    1. Buy two kinds of copy paper. When printing internal office documents,
use inexpensive recycled paper stock. Save high-quality paper for the
important documents. Then set your printer setting/preference for
automatic double-sided printing. 
 2. Small businesses can save $1,000 to
$2,000 per year if they buy eco-friendly ink and toner printer
cartridges. Cartridge World's high-yield printer cartridges cost as much
as 40 percent less than OEM ink and toner. McLaughlin added, "Businesses
can easily trim $100, $200 or more off their budget every month by using
remanufactured printer cartridges. You can estimate your savings with
Cartridge World's online calculator." 
 3. Match your office printing
needs with the right printer. Inexpensive printers are seldom the best
deal. $100-and-less printers can actually cost a fortune in the long run.
The real cost (for printing supplies) can be as much as three to five
times the price of the printer in the first year alone. Ask your local
Cartridge World store which printers use high-yield ink and toner
cartridges and match your actual printing needs to get the best deal.
Buying a factory-refurbished printer can also save hundreds. Plus, some
factory-refurbished printers offer better warranties than new printer
 4. Use online postage. It saves the time and expense of
going to the post office. The fee for service is often less costly than
the mileage and time to drive there. Unlike postage meters, there is no
extra equipment to purchase or rent. You only need a computer, a printer
and a scale with ounces. 

    Cartridge World is your local office printing expert. The company sells
more than 3,000 different printer cartridges for home and office
printers, copiers and fax machines. Plus, every printer cartridge is
100-percent guaranteed. Most stores offer free local delivery for
business customers.

printer questions. Businesses can request a quote online and set up
convenient online printer supply ordering services. Visit your local
