    Large cities or states could also do better by setting up a system so that everything of reasonable volume goes to an in-plant print center rather than on the office printer/copier. Double sided printing almost halves the cost of print, the bigger machines in those centers halve it again.

    Besides lowering the quality of the printers, duplexing is a great idea for reducing cost.

    Reminds me of an idea I first saw in a Scott Adams book to reduce print costs by using sans serif fonts. A quick search turns up “ecofont” which claims to use 20% less ink.
