Half of workers use office printer for personal use

High costs of ink are driving people to print at work - sometimes even CVs for job hunts.

People in the UK spend an average of 105 on printer ink annually, despite half admitting to using their printer at work for their own personal use.

A study by Kodak has revealed that almost three quarters of people think that the cost of ink is far too high, which encourages people to sneakily use the work printer for a range of personal documents. Fifteen percent of people even admitted to having used the office printer to print CVs while job hunting.

It seems that the practice is relatively safe, however, as only one per cent of people have reported colleagues for using the office printer for non-work related tasks.

"When it comes to the high cost of ink, the people of Britain have been ripped off for far too long now and they know it," said Enrico Bradamante, head of inkjet printing in Europe for Kodak.
