All of us appreciate products and services of the highest quality because only such things can grant us extra time for something that is truly valuable: our families, hobbies, and even simple rest. And flawless printing is exactly the thing that can save us time and bring some peace of mind.
What is even better is affordable high-quality printing. You can reach it easily by opting for Smart Ink compatible cartridges that will provide you with excellent prints and save you a lot of money.
Yet, not everyone has a printer at home. And even though it’s one of the most affordable ways to get sharp text and vivid photos, today, we’ll take a look at another option – FedEx.
FedEx Printing Services Overview
When it comes to printing possibilities, there are some brand names that instantly pop up in our heads – FedEx is one of them. It goes without saying that the name of this brand is famous. But how about the quality of the prints they produce and their cost?
First, let’s scroll through the FedEx website because it is actually a great source of information. For instance, it gives details of all sorts of printing they offer, including canvas photo print, corporate printing, water-resistant paper, brochure printing, etc.
Another thing you may find on the web page is prices.
The FedEx printing price depends on many factors, such as paper size and color. It may vary from 49 cents per page and grow up to $15 per page. All the materials are printed in the company’s offices and, unfortunately, you will not be able to see the final result until the moment you pick up your order or receive a delivery. This is the main difference with the home printer, since at home, you have a possibility to take as many tries as needed.
As we already mentioned, FedEx printing cost per page usually starts at 49 cents. This price corresponds to single- and multi-page small format (11″ x 17″) per side. However, if you want to print a page on the 20Ib White Bond paper in Letter size, you will be charged only 19 cents per page and it’ll cost you 75 cents per page of color print on 60lb Pastel/Bright paper.
FedEx Print and Go Cost
Probably, the most interesting service provided by FedEx is printing via email, or so-called FedEx print and go. It basically allows you to send a file while being at home or at your workplace and have it printed.
So how exactly does it work? First, you email your document or pictures directly to the company and wait for a confirmation email. The file will be printed immediately and will be accessible to print at any FedEx Office location for the next 10 days in case you need to print it again later.
Of course, it is also possible to use a good old USB flash drive printing. It is very convenient and can save you a lot of headache if you are not really comfortable using an online option.
FedEx office printing costs do not differ from those online, so it’s really up to the users which option to choose.
What about Kinko?
You might have recalled now that earlier, FedEx printing service used to be called Kinko’s print and go. So what happened to Kinko color print? Let us make things clear.
The thing is that FedEx bought this popular print and design shop in the early 2000’s and at some point, they decided to do rebranding and changed the name to FedEx Office.
And the prices have gone up since then, as well. This is quite understandable because it’s been a while since the company was purchased, but the difference is still quite noticeable. For instance, Kinko printing price for a single-sided, white or 3-hole, letter or Legal was only 8 cents.
Smart Ink Alternative
Smart Ink compatible cartridges may as well provide you with the highest service at your own house. It means a lot, considering how much time and effort you will save on printing. Let alone money!
Smart Ink provides the same high quality print as the original inks and also saves you a fortune, allowing you to spend this money on what’s more important. Just take a look at the difference in the price of FedEx Office and home print with Smart Ink compatible cartridges.
Compared to the Fedex page price ($0,49 and higher), Smart Ink page price starts from $0,01 per page.
The Final Word
As you can see, even though we have a wide choice of printing services today, some options remain the most cost-effective. No matter where you print: online, in the office, or at home, don’t forget to pay attention to the quality of your prints and look for the best. As we say, don’t think hard, think smart!
