HP Designjet ColorPro Printers - Estimating Cost Per Print

How to calculate the average cost per page

The model for figuring cost per page is a letter-sized document with five percent coverage in each color (CYMK), for a total of 20% coverage. Using this model, the average cost per page is about 8.6 cents (in U.S. dollars).
The cost per page is calculated based on the cost per ink cartridge and the average number of pages per cartridge, based on the 20% coverage model. Each ink cartridge costs approximately $30 (US). In addition, the cost of a black printhead is also included in the formula since its expected life is 12,000 pages (compared to 24,000 pages for the color printheads).
The following is a formula for calculating average cost per page:
Supplies Cost
Divided by Avg. Number of Pages
= Avg. Cost per Page
Avg. Cost Per Page

US$0.086
US$40 black printhead
12,000

note:
The figures above do not include paper costs. There are many types of paper, all with different costs. To get an exact cost per page, you need to add paper costs. The document size and type also affects the cost per page.
