Our organization generally won't spring for professional printing. Some people that receive my work are expected to print it themselves, and then use or distribute it as needed. As a result, a lot of work I've produced, gets printed by recipients on low-cost inkjet or laser printers, sometimes with color and sometimes without. Usually on plain old office letter paper they have around.
What are some techniques I can use in designs to minimize the variance in appearance and quality of printed materials when I have no control how they are printed, especially when low-quality printers are used?
