Most stores allow you to print your coupons in black & white. There are so many other security features on coupons that having them in color is not that big of a deal anymore, that means that purchasing the more expensive color ink is not necessary for printing coupons in most cases. Make sure your store does allow it first!
Once you know you are in the clear to print them without color, here’s how you get them to print properly:
On a PC, Start at the start menu (sorry Mac users, I don’t know the exact process, but you should be able to figure it out). My printers are found under the “Settings” menu.
Click on printers to open up the printer window. Then, locate the printer you want to change the settings for. If you right click on it, you will see another menu.
Most printers will show you the option for “Printing Preferences” at this point. Some of them, you will need to go into “Properties” first.
Click on “Printer Preferences” to open up this new window: (It will be different based on the type of printer you have, but with a little looking you should find something similar.) My printer has a “Quick Print” option, other printers will call it “Draft” or “Print in Draft”. Select it for it to print a lower quality, but still readable coupon.
Finally, look around for the print in “Black and White” or “Grayscale” feature to eliminate printing in color.
Now you know how to save ink printing your coupons.
Now it’s time to get those coupons. Print them from major internet printable sites right here on Deals in the Mitten!
