If you print alot of coupons like I do, I recommend buying refill ink for your cartridges. They are cheap and last a long time. I have been using refill ink for the lifetime of my printer and will continue to do so. I also print all black and white and use the grayscale setting. When printing documents, try to use the smallest readable font possible (helps to save paper as well), and use a font with thin lines. This will help you save money on ink costs. I buy my ink from Simply Ink, and currently you can get 10% off if you order $55 or more from them. This would be a good time to stock up on ink if you know you print often. Go here to order your ink!
