Get a laser jet printer for black only printing, a lot cheaper per page.

Ink jet printers will use color ink even while printing black. It makes the black look blacker I guess.
There should be a way in the printer software to make sure it only uses the black ink.

Happy printing, the Prisoner.

Also, each time you turn the printer on and hear those start-up sounds the printer is briefly clearing old ink from the print head, which uses a tiny amount of ink each time.
