    my local library allows only 15 free pages per day.
    I have an ebook of 300 pages that I need to print. Is there anything I can do to trick the printer so I can print it all on the same day?

    Here is something I have noticed: if you print multiple copies of the same document, it counts the pages only once. so for example lets say you have a one page word document and you go to print and increase the copies from 1 to 20. It will print 20 times but deduct only one page from your account. I dont know if this will help but thought I would mention it.

    Just copy and paste each page into a new word document? or print screen each document page and print out individual images.

    If you want to print a 300 page ebook, what's wrong with printing 15 pages a day?
    You could ask others if they could print some pages for you.
    But if your really going to read it in 300 pages in one day, why not just read it from your screen and take notes.

    Arrange a meeting at one of your SEO clients offices, whilst in the meeting arrange for a friend to call your client or smash his car, whilst your client is dealing with your friend, use his photocopier.

    Yeah, another amazing thread from nonai lol

    First purchase I made for my business all those years ago was a photocopier lol, now virtually every home printer has a copy function.
    As you said, in the UK you can get a copy for 0.05 pp which would cost £15 for 300 pages, substantially less at a proper copy shop/printers lol

    How about you write some content for one of my sites and in return I'll print out the 300 pages myself and ship them to you?

    Printers are meant to be cheap since its the ink that you spend a ton of money on.

    Its like $.80 per 1,000 pages in ink costs when one does the refilling. Its even cheaper than buying manufactured toner which runs around $2.00 per 1,000 pages.

    For 1,000 pages on ink from the store in carts it costs me like $58 :(

    OP, every time you post, it gives me a little window into your life.
    And, that usually gives me reason to chuckle.

    How about your clients daughter, who is so darn eager to help? Why not task her with gaming the library printing rules?
