Are you using your office printer to its fullest potential? If you’re like most people, probably not. Most of the time printers are only utilized for their basic jobs – printing, copying, and the occasional scanning. But did you know that printers, especially newer lines like Konica Minolta bizhub, can do so much more? Your printer can be used for fun projects, enhancing the workplace, and even saving you money on things that you would normally pay someone outside of the office to do.
- Look beyond paper
This one is just a general suggestion for how to get more out of your printer, but really the suggestions are endless. You can print on tape, fabric, cardboard, wax paper, decals, and so much more.
2. Create giant posters
With some extra computer software (or the right multi-function printer) you can print a poster as large as you need in blocks of pieces of paper. This is an affordable way to make a quick and easy large poster for any occasion.
3. Print temporary tattoos
Having a family-friendly event at the office? One fun idea that utilizes the printer is creating temporary tattoos. You can actually purchase paper specifically for temporary tattoos, format the pictures you want as the tattoo, and you have a fun take home gift or way to wear your company pride around the office.
4. Add some personalization to your office’s next holiday party
You can use it to print out supplies for the office party like napkins, signs, and cake pictures with personalized photos, designs, words, and more. And you can do all of this inside the office for cheaper than it would be to get normal napkins, let alone personalized ones.
5. Print your own unique business cards.
If you are a new business and looking to cut costs whenever possible, one way to give your company a boost in professionalism without breaking the bank is printing out your own business cards. And the best part about making them yourself is that you aren’t restricted to the templates that a website or company offers. You can let your creativity run wild, and if you don’t like them, reprint new ones, all from your own computer and printer,
This list is only five of countless applications for your printer, from the practical to the absurd. And if utilizing your printer more creatively piques your interest, do not let your office settle for a second rate printer.
