Automatic Toner Replenishment

In today's workplace, there are always things to remember and, consequently, things that are forgotten.

At Applied Imaging, we're hoping to make your day-to-day work activities easier, so we're taking one of those things off of your to do list.

With our automatic toner replenishment program, we send a new toner cartridge to you every time the one in your machine drops below 20%.

Sound too good to be true? Well it's not. Here's how to get started:

If you've already signed up for FM Audit:

1. Call your sales representative or send Mike McCurry an email at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it and tell them you're interested in the automatic toner replenishment program. They will take it from there!

1. Go to and click on the "PrintSmart Survey" link. You can find it on the main header above "About Us" and "Solutions."

2. Fill out and submit the short survey.

4. When the email arrives, click on the install link and install the program. It should take about five minutes.

It's that easy! Once you're signed up, we will automatically send out a toner cartridge whenever one drops below 20%. As long as we have it in stock, it should arrive in 1-2 business days!

How to Block Fax Numbers

Sustainability in the Workplace: Michigan companies creating more than 1,000 green jobs

In perfect timing with our Sustainability in the Workplace series, an article published yesterday in Crain's Detroit Business stated "Michigan has moved up the state rankings to fourth in the nation in creating clean energy and transportation jobs.”

Ford Motor Company and Consumers Energy could together bring 1,100 green jobs to the Mitten State.

Michigan is topped by California, Nevada, and New York. Texas follows close behind.

Applied Imaging is proud to be a Michigan-based company, and we are excited about the positive impact companies like us are able to make, not only for the environment, but also for the people of Michigan.

Sustainability in the Workplace: Reducing Carbon Footprint

One of the most common questions about sustainability is "What can I do to reduce my carbon footprint?

Some of the options are restricted to home use, like eating local and buying in-season produce. Others can be used both at home and in the office, like using energy-efficient lightbulbs and upgrading insulation.

One common option is buying Energy Star certified appliances, like refrigerators and washing machines. However, did you know your Canon products in the office are most likely Energy Star certified as well?

Canon has a strong partnership with Energy Star, the EPA program that is a trusted source for energy efficiency information. Since 1993, Canon has qualified more than 200 products and has received 12 Energy Star Awards for protecting the environment through its energy-efficient machines.

If your office is looking to become more environmentally friendly and reduce its carbon footprint, call an Applied Imaging representative today and ask about our Energy Star certified Canon products!

Sustainability in the Workplace: Remanufactured Toner Cartridges

Our friends at ImageSource published an article this week called "Green Project Releases New 'GP' Gear."

The article discusses a new technology coming to the industry that allows for remanufactured toner cartridges. The "GP" Gear is currently designed for HP and Canon replacement toner cartridges.

This is a major step in the right direction for sustainability in the workplace. Allowing toner cartridges to be remanufactured means fewer cartridges will be disposed of in landfills.
