If your current printer has stopped functioning properly and is causing you frustration then it is time to invest in a new one. While it might seem easier just to toss the old printer out for garbage collection, there are better options. At CompandSave we encourage recycling. We have shared numerous articles about how to recycle your ink cartridges but did you know you can also recycle your printer? Recycling your old printer allows the remaining working parts to be re used to create working printers. It is also keeps potentially hazardous electronic parts out of landfills.

Before buying your new printer research the buyback and trade in offers available through the manufacturer of your current printer. Companies such as Hewlett-Packard offer great trade in options for working and nonworking printers. Even if you are not looking to trade in your printer the manufacturer might offer a buy back option or at the very least take the printer off of your hands and recycle it for you.

Another recycling option would be to check with your local electronics retailer. Stores such as Staples, Office Max and Best Buy to name a few of the larger retailers, offer to recycle your old electronics including printers. In exchange they often will offer store credit or gift cards in exchange for gently used electronics. Some stores may charge a recycling fee if the printer is too old or the parts are to damage to be recycled. If this is the case the store will make sure that your printer is disposed of properly and does not become a hazard to others.

If your printer is still in pretty good shape you could also consider donating it to a local charity. This option allows working printers to still be put to good use and keeps your printer out of a landfill. Don’t forget because it is a donation it is also tax deductible.

No matter which recycling option you choose for your old printer, it is important to realize that just chucking your printer in the trash is not a wise choice. If you would like more information on printer recycling programs we would be happy to provide you with information or point you in the right direction.

Our new warehouse and headquarters in San Fransisco Bay Area, CA.

When we first started CompandSave seven years ago we knew that we wanted our business to find its home in the state of California. It was our goal to become the biggest ink supplier in our market. However, we decide that starting our business in Portland, OR was our best bet for getting the operation up and running. We came to this decision after reviewing the different tax rates for businesses in each state. The seven years we spent in Portland gave us great financial power, the opportunity to lead sales in North America for printer supplies.  Even though we were happy and doing well in Portland we still had it in our hearts to move our business to California. We felt that the move would bring us one step closer to reaching our long term goals and give us even more strength in this industry.


We decided to settle in the San Francisco Bay Area. The Bay Area is the best place for CompandSave logistic-wise and also because it is full of companies currently driving the technology world. Joining this community puts us in a position to be the first to hear of and adopt changes in technology that affect our business.
Our new warehouse!


It has only been a couple of months since we made our move to the Bay Area, but the positive effects are already visible. Our warehouse is larger which allows us to increase the size of our staff and keep over 100,000 ink cartridges in stock. In our industry having a fast product cycle and being able to serve customers quickly is very important. Our new facility allows us to do just that. We have a dynamic team, and we are eager to become one of the largest online retailers in our industry. Such motivation and positive impacts as a result of logistic advantages, will most likely cause a trigger effect and exceeds our expectations in terms of a quicker growth.

Playing a card game is a fun social activity to do with others and is also a great way to exercise your mind. There are a multitude of traditional card games available to play–but why not use your imagination and create your own? This is a great chance to make up your own rules as well as use your creativity to design your own set of playing cards.

Basic things you will need:
  1. An idea for a game, including a set of rules. Use your experience from other card games you have played in the past to guide you when creating your game.
  2. A color inkjet printer.
  3. Cardstock paper.
  4. A group of people willing to test out your game.

Designing your cards


For your first card game, go easy on yourself and design a game that is simple to play and in looks. Think of games such as Uno, which features cards that are full of color and are designed to engage players of all age levels. When designing your cards, keep in mind the color, font, and artwork. The look of the cards will need to be appealing, but also simple and not so over designed that their purpose in the game is confusing.

After you decide on a color scheme for your cards, pick a font for the cards that displays the words or numbers on the cards clearly. A great font for a fun and playful game would be Comic Sans. Also think about the size and color of the font. Again, Uno is a great example because the font size and color is readable from everyone around the playing table. It is easy to recognize cards even when they are upside down.  

Lastly, think about what type of graphic or artwork you would like to have displayed on the back side of the card. Most card games have some type of artwork to decorate the back of the cards. This looks nice when they are being held in the hands of the players.

Printing out your game

When you are ready to print out the playing cards you have designed it is important to print them out on paper that is durable. These cards will be handled quite a bit when being played, so your best bet would be to print them out on heavy card stock paper. To increase the durability of your cards, it is advised that you laminate the cards as well. This will make them waterproof and hold up for a longer period of time. When printing your cards, check your printer settings for a double-sided printing option. This will allow you to print out cards that have your artwork on the backside and the card instructions or abilities on the other side.

At CompAndSave we have glossy photo paper that might be able to provide the right texture and look for your cards. Keep in mind that the cards should feel uniformly “rounded”– not square or jagged. This makes the cards friendlier to the player’s hands and easier for shuffling. If all of this seems a lot of work, you can always print it out on regular paper and draw/color it out with others to help you make something that everyone can share together.
