Color copies, copy machines, their use and are they worth it?
Color copies are a necessary tool for any office, and in case that you don’t have your own print machine or you are in a need of bulk copies, the only solution you will have are online or local print companies. Each of the print companies you will run into will have their own rates. Some print stores will publicly display the prices they charge for color copies, but this is not the case at all print companies. This is because the overall price of color copies will always depend on different factors such as quality and size of paper, quality of the print, color you will use and similar.
Normally, each office will have a print machine where color copies can be made. This is not the best solution when you are in a need of bulk copies because of the very high price of the toner. So, if you are looking to save some money when making color copies, avoid making them on your home/office print machine.
Color copies will have a different rate depending on where you will print them. Looking in the long run, they will be the most expensive when done on a home printer. The cost of color copies on a home printer will depend on the following factors – cost of paper, cost of ink, cost of printer, and yield of the cartridge.
When investing into a print machine, the best thing is to always invest into one that is of a good quality. There are different types and models of print machines, and some of them feature user-serviceable parts which is one thing that will need to kept on mind because this is something that you will have to replace from time to time. This cost money as well, and the more you spend your home printer, the more you will have to spend to maintain it and keep it in a good condition.
Looking at all the mentioned facts, the only thing that shouldn’t worry you when planning to make cheap color copies on your home printer is the cost of the paper, as it will normally never cost more than a cent per page.
The lifetime of your printer is another thing that will determine the overall cost of your color copies. For instance, average lifetime of one print machine is about 5 years so this means that an average home printer can print around 500 copies per month.
When trying to discover the average cost of color copies made on your home printer, there is one more thing that should be taken into consideration and that is the life of the cartridge – color cartridges have a different life timeframe than black cartridges. For example, with one color cartridge you can make around 1500 impressions and with a black cartridge around 2500 impressions.
