What does Print Saver do?
Print Saver reminds you that your printer doesn't just use ink, it also uses trees (paper).
How does it work?
Print Saver plays different sounds when you are preparing to print and whilst you are printing; it will reward you with the relaxing sounds of the forest if you decide not to print.
Are you serious?
Print Saver is intended as a bit of fun, but it's also a friendly reminder that printing costs more than the price of printer cartridges.
PC running Microsoft Windows 7, Vista, XP or 2000. Sorry, Apple Mac is not currently supported. If you want a Mac version, send us a tweet @inkfactory and if we get enough interest we might make one.
