It makes sense that anyone who is thinking about getting a printer needs to consider the costs that come with owning one. As well as the electricity that it uses, you must consider the costs that come with replacing ink cartridges. Some printers use a lot of ink to get each page done and there are models that use far less! We’ve worked hard to find the most efficient printers on the market and listed them below so that you can make a more informed choice the next time you need a new printer.

One of the best ways to keep your costs down when buying a printer like an Envy is to shop around for the paper and ink so that you get access to the best deals and make an already efficient printer even more budget-friendly.

Consider how much you need to use it, the purpose of its use and whether you can get compatible ink to help you save the pennies when you need it most.
