Nowadays, "professional-quality printing" isn’t simply a catch phrase; Inkjet printers can turn out stunning graphics and great-looking prints. And you don’t have to be a graphics professional to turn out professional documents. With the right formatting, a good Microsoft Word document can impress your audience. 

How to Print Like a Professional

Professional-quality printing can be achieved using the following guidelines:
  • Print using the highest-quality setting on your all-in-one Inkjet printer. For extra-crisp photographs, invest in photo print cartridges.
  • Print on the paper your printer manufacturer recommends. Many inks are made to bond with specific paper types. Look for high-quality paper from your manufacturer for the best quality output. We recommend 24lb white paper for everyday printing and Dell Premium photo paper for photo printing.
  • Spend time getting to know the program you’re using to create your document. Small touches like headers, footers and formatting can make a big difference in the final presentation.
  • Make sure that your printer cartridges are properly aligned before printing a professional document. A printer test sheet, available from your printer, can help you ensure good alignment.
  • Avoid clip art that may give your document an amateur feel; instead, use crisp photos. 

What You Can Print

Your printer can produce a lot more than documents and photographs. Modern inkjet printers can be used to print:

  • Address labels
  • Shipping label
  • Envelopes
  • CD/DVD Labels
  • Business cards
  • Greeting cards
  • Postcards
  • T-Shirt transfers

The trick to each of these projects is specially-designed printer paper.
