Saving paper has two benefits: it save you money and it lessens the impact of printing on the environment. Short of printing less, which most people simply cannot do, what options do you have for saving paper?
One of the simplest, yet most underused methods, is double-sided printing. This is a technique almost any Xerox printer or copier can do. As you would expect, it nears doubles the mileage you can get out of your paper.
Couple double-sided printing with using a smaller font. Most people default to 12 point font, when in most cases 10 point font is just as readable. With particular fonts even smaller sizes are acceptable. For your longer documents this can shave off a handful of pages. In some cases bigger is better, but know that you have the option and it will save you paper in the long run.
You should also consider creating a scrap-paper bin. If you print something with a typo or it smudges and you can’t use it, put it in the bin. Next time you need to do a test print, do it on the back of a scrap.
Also consider using recycled paper. It costs and feels the same but is better for the environment.
