  • Only print in colour when you need to as it’s around three times more expensive than black and white
  • If you leave blue hyperlinks in a black text document you’ll still pay for a full colour page so why not turn them black?

  • If you’re printing in colour then make the most of it by including as many images and photos as you want – it won’t cost anymore!
