Is Your Printing Area Re-Opening Ready? Find Out Now.Genevieve Rahman
If it’s been over a year since you have opened your copy paper at your workplace, your printing supplies may have passed their expiration date. With the pandemic beginning a little over a year ago and workplaces preparing for a full re-opening soon, the time is now to replace your expired copy paper for a productive re-opening. The experts have created a quick print checklist to get prepared for your office re-opening:
Copy paper goes bad, and can ruin your printer if it’s not replaced
Yes, it’s really true. If your copy paper has been sitting on the shelf for a year or more, it’s time to replace it. Copy paper that has reached or passed a year can cause jammed printers, undesirable print performance, and overall can be a huge headache for a workplace re-opening. Save yourself the nuance of bad print paper by replacing what is old, and create a plan for how much you need to order in the coming months.
Expert Tip: The experts recommend ordering enough to replace the old copy paper, and monitor the inventory after one month of your office is fully re-opened. From there, plan your orders on how much is being utilized, then reevaluate every quarter.
Check the expiration dates on your ink cartridges
Just like copy paper, ink for your printer goes bad, too. Check your ink cartridge boxes for an expiration date and replace any ink that has reached or passed the expiration date. The same goes for ink cartridges in the printer – if it’s been there for a year without use, it’s time to refresh your stock with new ink cartridges.
Get your printer serviced ASAP
Printers are machines, and machines need to be serviced regularly. It’s a wise choice to have your printers serviced and checked before your office doors re-open. This helps ease any hiccups that could arise from potential printer issues.
