Average cost for colour printing
Just curious what the average cost for colour printing is these days from a store? Regular letter sized, double sided. I've called staples and it's $0.40/page. I'm needing 500 done :/.

That's a good price for a wireless laser printerjm1 wrote: ↑Apr 17th, 2018 9:21 amLaser printers are really coming down in price. For only $30 more than your print run, you can buy this duplex laser colour printer on sale:
Depending on how much toner is required for your page, you might not even need more toner than it comes with.
Price out some other local printing places, but I don't think they'll be much cheaper than 40 cents per page, so you might as well spend a bit more, but have a printer for future print runs.

I think a better comparison would be the cost of toner. Each genuine cart is ~$75, so $300 to print 1300 sheets @5%, making each side cost 23 cents. Of course you could halve that cost using generic toner and assume the risks inherent with them.
