Since ink cartridges can be quite expensive, making them last for as long as possible makes sense. Here are a few simple ways to get the most out of your ink cartridges.
1) Print in draft mode. Most of the items we print out do not need to printed at the highest quality. Simply printing in draft mode can give you 3 to 5 times more prints from your cartridges.
3) Use the printer frequently. Yes, I said use your printer. If you use your printer on a regular basis you can help keep your cartridges in good working order and prevent the nozzles from getting clogged by dried ink. It is recommended that you print at least a page or so every couple of weeks at a minimum.
