Office Printer Etiquette Tips – Pt. 1

businessman making copiesThere is a lot of social etiquette to learn when you work in an office, from the shared kitchen to your cubicles. Just like everything else, printing at the office comes with its own set of rules.

Always Reload

You wouldn’t put an empty milk jug back in the fridge, so don’t leave an empty printer for your colleagues. If you use up the last of the paper, ink, or toner, refill it before you go back to your desk. It is a common courtesy that goes a long way towards keeping the peace in your office. Your coworkers will appreciate not being left high and dry when they try to print.

Don’t Leave a Jam

If the paper jams, don’t leave the problem for the next person. A paper jam can be time-consuming and frustrating to sort out, but if you walk away and someone else tries to print something while it’s jammed, you’re going to have some angry coworkers on your hands.

Let the Smaller Jobs Go First

Have you ever gone to the grocery store to buy a single item, and someone with a full cart graciously let you go in front of them in the line? It is a considerate gesture that you should pass along to your colleagues when you use the printer. If you have to print a huge document and your coworker has to make one copy, let them go first to save time.

These are just three of the ways that you can help make printing in your office go more smoothly. Is your printer continually jamming and malfunctioning? Call CESCO Inc. at 1 (866) 820-7409 for reliable and affordable Dallas printer repair.
