Colour vs. Monochrome: When to use both.

Colour vs. Monochrome: What's The Difference?

You might feel the urge to print everything in colour because you’ve been told everything is better in colour, or to make sure your documents are engaging, but that isn’t always the case. Let’s dive into when to opt for colour print, and when monochrome printing would be the better option.

Colour prints are best for documents that will be presented or shown to your team during important meetings. Instances where you would want to use colour print instead of black & white include but are not limited to: photographs, presentations, marketing pitches, pie charts, documents that include sections that are labeled with colour and more. 

In some circumstances however, printing in colour may be redundant or even a waste of ink from your printer’s ink cartridges. When printing important notes, meeting minutes, or simple drafts, you may find it more logical to use monochrome print in order to reduce unnecessary costs. When printing important documents such as contracts, research  papers or any document that requires a large amount of paper to be printed, it is advisable to use monochrome prints.

In conclusion, the ability to print in both colour and monochrome might be a resource that can improve your businesses productivity and boost engagement within your team when presenting, that is why it is important to choose a good quality printer that can provide you the best of both worlds.
