Think before you use the ink!

With many of our teams working remote over the past several weeks, Olympic Steel has seen a reduction in print costs of 35-40% – not a small number!

As we return to the office, here are some ways you can continue this positive trend and help to directly impact the bottom line and the environment:

  • Go paperless – anywhere possible (especially for daily publications and information that can be read online)
  • If it’s critical, consider printing
    • the fewest pages possible
    • double-sided vs. single-sided when the job requires multiple pages
    • grayscale vs. color (printing in color is 6x more expensive)
  • For meetings, share copies of meeting materials in advance for review online prior to or during the meeting and/or project materials or share them via webcast
