With new research from Epson EcoTank revealing that 78 percent of UK students are stressed, the OEM explains how having their own printers can help reduce the psychological burden.
Epson’s research demonstrated that, as well as transitioning to a new lifestyle and having to deal with exams, tuition fees and tight deadlines, another major stressor for students is the cost of living.
Epson explains that “it is the essentials, such as accommodation, food, transport and even printing, that blow a hole in their budgets. In fact, 64 percent of students agree that the cost of printing from their university library or print shops is very high.”
As a result, 60 percent of students reveal that having their own printer helped take “a weight off their minds.”
Annika Fagerstrom, Head of Consumer Products at Epson UK says: “We know how much stress students are under, but it is surprising to find out just how much they are concerned about covering their living expenses. It is important that they put the right resources in place and prepare ahead of their university life to ensure they handle what can be a stressful transition. Part of this will of course be learning how to manage budgets, but it can also include making wise investments that are cost-effective in the long run, such as getting a printer with a refillable ink tank. Our EcoTank range delivers a low-cost printing option and can also help students save time and money as the printers come with three years’ worth of ink, giving the user the freedom to print for much longer between refills.”
