Business Money Saving Tips – Save Money by Going Green


As the old saying goes, a dollar saved is a dollar gained – This is especially true when you can better spend the money that you saved into investments that can help grow your business. Although saving money can be tricky when running a business, trimming overhead sometimes is not only a matter of making more profits, it might be the key to your business’s survival. 


 We have compiled a short list of items that not only can help lower overhead costs but can also help the environment by reducing unnecessary consumption.

1. Paperless or doubled sided printing method

This is a must in this day and age with the increase use in tablets and cloud computing. Not only can saving on materials save you money directly, this can also be a time saver, which in turn saves you more money. 

When you do have to have hard copies, consider looking into having regularly used forms printed and on-hand as opposed to photocopying them, as this can be a less expensive route. You may also want to consider upgrading your printer to the ones that allow double sided printing, which can save you considerable amount of paper every year.

2. Buy recycled printer cartridges

Recycling not only saves you money but it is also good for the environment. Printing ink and toner cartridges can sometime be one of the main costs for businesses. Buying recycled or remanufactured printing supplies can often times save you up to 70% of your ordinary printing costs. You can also stop that plastic cartridge from being one of the 350 million printer cartridges already in our landfills.


 3. Buy used office furniture and equipment

Although it is tempting to purchase new and shiny items in your office, it is much more prudent and environmentally friendly to purchase used office furniture and equipments that are in good condition. Look around the internet or contact local office equipment supplier and you might be surprised how much money can be saved with used or reconditioned office furniture and equipment. 

4. Reduce office energy consumption or go solar

You may be surprised how much money you can save through simple moves such as changing to the right light bulbs or keeping the equipment on a power strip and turning the power strip off when not in use. Since the object of many environmentally friendly changes is to save energy, and you have to pay for the energy your business uses; that means if energy consumption can be reduced, you will also be cutting down costs.

There are also many solar programs out there that require very little up-front cost through leasing or financing that will dramatically reduce or eliminate your electric bill. Consider contacting your local solar equipment providers for more details on how going solar can save you money.


 We hope you find the article above to be helpful and we welcome any comments or additional ideas that we should add to our list. Toner Spot is a remanufactured printer cartridge provider and we can help in reducing your business costs through high quality remanufactured printer cartridges. We offer One year manufacturer’s warranty on all purchases made through www.toner-spot.com. Thank you again for reading!

Grey background


This issue can happen after the initial set up of the printer or when the machine has been physically moved. Switch the printer off, wait for few minutes, and turn the machine back on. This procedure will prompt the printer to conduct color calibration. Check if the issue has been corrected, otherwise, try to conduct the color calibration from the operation panel. However, the manual color calibration steps from the control panel are more complex and can affect the printer settings. We recommend contacting a technician or emailing us at sales@toner-spot.com for direct assistance.

Dirty Edge


Pull out the paper transfer unit. Clean the paper ramp using a soft, dry, and lint free cloth. Be careful not to touch the black transfer roller and black transfer belt during the cleaning process.

Ricoh Aficio SP C830DN C831DN Printer Review

We receive inquiries for printer recommendations via email and LiveChat program quite often. Our friends and families also seek our professional opinions for advice when choosing a machine either for their home or small office. Here’s one recommendation for an excellent machine in a medium usage environment: – Ricoh multifunctional color printers.

Some of the popular Ricoh models include the Aficio SP C320DN, Aficio SP C430DN, and Aficio SP C830DN/C831DN. All these models share common characteristics – low defect rate, excellent image output, and good page yield.

Recently, one customer’s company decided to purchase a Ricoh Aficio SP C830DN printer after weighing some pros and cons, here are some features of this durable machine:


This printer can print more than 42 pages per minute for both monochrome and color outputs. In addition, various media types are supported including brochures and booklets. The print quality comes with impressive 9,600 x 600 dpi with oil-free polyester polymerization cartridge design.

The Ricoh Aficio SP C830DN and C831DN are equipped with a standard two 550-page paper trays and one 100-sheet bypass tray. Additional capacity can be added up to a 1,100 sheets tray or even a large 1,200-sheet side large capacity tray along with a 2,000-sheet large capacity tray. Handling heavy office print duties or creating professional documents in-house will not be an issue at all for these two printer models.


Some of the energy friendly features including Eco Night Sensor and Eco-Friendly Indicator on the control panel display. Users not only can set the printer to energy conservation mode when not in operation, but also understand print history with its simulated impacts on the environment.  

The only common concern regarding the Ricoh Aficio SP C830DN and C831DN printers are the toner cartridges costs. The OEM toner cartridges can cost up to more than $200 per color unit. Even though with its high capacity design, the hefty price tag on OEM toners still scares away many small business owners.
