If you have recently purchased an Epson printer, ensure that you align it before you start taking prints. Aligning your newly purchased Epson printer is important to ensure that your printouts are of high quality.

Things to bear in mind

  • Choose the pattern in each set that has the least visible vertical lines.

  • If patterns are not aligned, find the closest one and click on Realignment. Print one more alignment sheet and check if it’s done.

It’s important that your printer is aligned perfectly before you use it. This helps in reduction of paper wastage. In turn you are contributing for a better environment. We see more businesses and employees printing unnecessarily, even as we hurtle towards a paperless environment. Considering how damaged our eco-system is, and how quickly deforestation is taking place, printing unnecessarily should fill you with guilt and remorse.

You can avoid printing unnecessarily by aligning your printer when required, and making sure that you care for it regularly. A printer that is well taken care of works surprisingly well, and makes sure that you do not have to print sheets of paper again and again. Inculcate the habit of printing less, and caring for the printer at work, and educate your staff about alignment, so that they know what to do when printer alignment needs to be implemented.
