HP 2500C and 2000C Professional Series Color Printers - The Average Cost per Page

Issue:
The average cost per page for the HP 2000C and HP 2500C series printers.
Solution
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
US$0.0033
US$40 color printhead
24,000
US$0.0100
US$30 black cartridge
1,400
US$0.0214
US$30 cyan cartridge
1,750
US$0.0171
US$30 magenta cartridge
1,750
US$0.0171
US$30 yellow cartridge
1,750
US$0.0171
  note:
The above figures do not include media costs. Media costs need to be added in order to get an exact cost per page. There are many different types of media, all with different costs. The size and type of the document that is being printed also affects cost per page.
