Save Paper Widget

This piece of add-on software compliments the PaperCut NG software. Developed by Do Something! and PaperCut, the widget costs only $0.99 a user and goes towards the running costs of Do Something!’s Save Paper campaign.

It allows individuals and organisations to monitor their printing and finally get a handle on just how much paper they’re consuming day by day, month by month or year by year. It’s an invaluable tool that empowers people to reduce the amount of paper they use.

It provides real-time activity logs that detail all printer use. Information tracked includes:

  • The time of print.
  • The name of the user who printed.
  • The total number of pages printed.
  • Document names and titles.
  • Other job attributes such as paper size, colour mode and more.

Print Logs are available in a viewer friendly HTML format, Comma Separated Value (CSV) or Excel format for advanced users needing the data for further analysis.

Thanks to the software’s innovative Adobe AIR desktop widget, individual users are also educated about their usage of resources. The widget reports in real-time the environmental impact of your printing, in terms of estimated use of trees and energy, as well as estimated production of carbon.

So when you download PaperCut NG, please remember to click the box in order to download the Save Paper Widget. That way you’ll get a real grip on managing your paper usage and work out how much you can start saving. You’ll also be helping to fund Do Something!’s Save Paper campaign.
