I'm making a brochure for my company, and I went with white text on a black background since it looks the best. There's also a picture, so color is required.
At any rate, after a few test prints of both sides of the brochure (one page, two-sided), I noticed that the level of my black ink had dropped considerably, as in "60% considerably." I knew it was going to be hard on my supply of ink, but at the rate it's eating through ink, I'd estimate that the brochures are going to come out to $1.25 each if I use my at-home inkjet, so I figure there has to be a better option.
- How much would a professional printer (Kinko's or a mom & pop place) charge for this?
- How much would it cost (per page) if I bought my own laser printer?
- Is it better to simply move to black paper and get/find a printer that can print with white ink?
Any answers to these questions or advice on the matter is greatly appreciated. There has to be a way to get this done for 25-35 cents a copy, or at least I hope so... :(
