Save Paper, Save Money

Printing Alternatives: scan documents to PDF, access files through PAWS Cabinet storage, annotate PDFs with Adobe reader to save time, money, and the environement.
There are many alternatives to printing that will save money, time, and the environment.

Reducing that amount of paper you use will save your money and help the environment. Here are some tips to reduce your printing costs. 

  • Use the print preview function to check that there are no extra, unnecessary pages at the end of your document.
  • Reduce your font size and page margins, if possible.
  • Always use the black & white setting for jobs that do not require colour. Colour printing cost more per side. 
  • If you are printing PowerPoint slides or notes, change the setting to print multiple slides per page. 
Size Matters - Save paper when printing.
