Spending Too Much Money on Printer Parts?


You can avoid spending your entire budget on replacement parts when you hire a company to do regular printer maintenance! Printer parts aren’t cheap, and if you have a smaller machine, they may be completely unavailable. 

Waiting on printer parts may also mean longer than usual downtime for your business, and that could set you back financially as well as being frustrating for you and your employees. 

Are you investing more in replacement parts than you are in print marketing?

Having a reliable printer is essential for any business. The smallest paper jam or streaky ink issue can be a huge headache, and if you’re consistently having issues with your inkjet printer, we know how annoying it can be.

Using Color Prints to Boost Marketing Efforts


Trying to grow your business in the community?

Want to make your marketing materials stand out among the competition?

Whether you’re going to networking events or sending out mailers, color prints are a great way to make an impression. Canva, an online graphic design tool, reports the majority of people make their decisions about a product or brand based on the color of a document or label.

However, if your printer only puts out lifeless, dull images, you could be doing yourself a disservice! 

Here’s our best practices to keep your color prints looking vibrant:

  1. 1Consider 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.  
  2. 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” in order to optimize color printing.

Looking for a Cost-Effective Color Printer?


Are you shopping for a cost-efficient color printer for your business?

Are you overwhelmed by the cost of printer cartridges and ink that you spend each month?

If you’re buying a new printer for your business needs, it’s not just the price tag of the unit itself you should be paying attention to!

A Color Printer is Cost-Efficient if…


… The price is right.
While overall price isn’t the only factor to consider when shopping for a printer, it is certainly still something to factor in. Generally, printer cost goes up when the unit has more features. If you’re a home user, chances are you won’t need the high speed, high-capacity performance of a business feature. If you’re a business owner with high volume printing needs, spending a bit more on a more advanced printer will better accommodate your needs.

… The cost per page is low.
Your printer’s cost per page is the most important factor to consider when shopping. Different ink cartridges are designed to print a certain number of pages before it needs to be replaced. Laser toner cartridges have much higher page yields compared to ink cartridges. Even though toner cartridges cost more, the cost per page of a laser toner is still much lower. In the long run, laser printers are generally more cost-efficient.

… Compatible cartridges are available for your printer. Most original brand cartridges are not cheap! Today, there are several other options, like third-party consumables in the form of compatible and remanufactured ink cartridges. These ink cartridges offer customers a way to cut their print costs by as much as 50% or more.

The Benefits of Recycling E-Waste


If you’re like most businesses, you generate e-waste on a regular basis.

Wouldn’t it be great to have someone pick up your e-waste for FREE? You could reduce your environmental footprint and save money!

According to the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, “e-waste is the most rapidly growing segment of the municipal solid waste stream.” Recycling your e-waste benefits the environment in several ways:

  • Conserve natural resources.  Electronics contain many materials that can be reused, refurbished, and recycled, such as those found in toner cartridges.  The manufacturing process consumes energy to produce new products, which, depending on the process, may contribute to greenhouse gas emissions and water pollution.  Refurbished toner cartridges may use significantly less raw materials than brand new cartridges. An example would be MSE remanufactured toner cartridges which use “79% less materials” than their “OEM equivalent.”
  • Proper disposal of toxic chemicals. E-waste may contain high concentrations of chemicals and metals, including mercury, lead, and cadmium.  Proper recycling and disposal keep these toxins out of our soil and water and protects the food we eat and the water we drink.

Find out how MCS helps our customers get rid of ink cartridges, monitors, printers, and other e-waste by reading the full article on our website! 

Recycling e-waste is one of the simplest ways to reduce your environmental footprint.  Are you ready to take that step? The time is now!
