Editors' Review

GreenPrint World is a free Windows utility that helps eliminate wasted pages while printing. Installation takes some time, and the software requires Visual C 2005, which is included if necessary. GreenPrint will also put four new programs into your Windows start-up menu, add a browser helper object for Internet Explorer, and add three printers (GreenPrint PDF, GreenPrint MailPDF, and GreenPrint). During installation, GreenPrint will ask you to select a default printer, but the printer can be easily changed later from the GreenPrint interface.

After installation, you can print from any application to GreenPrint, which will automatically remove pages from your printout based on rules like "completely blank pages" "pages with an image only," or "Pages 95% blank with less than 5 lines of text," and then pass along your document to your printer with the unnecessary pages removed. Double-clicking on any page removes it from the print job; double-clicking adds the page back.

The app keeps a running tally of ink and paper saved and greenhouse gas emissions reduced through regular use. It also lets you create PDF files or e-mail PDFs directly with the printer's GreenPrint PDF and GreenPrint MailPDF, respectively.

Printing from Excel sometimes created a Microsoft Document Imaging (MDI) format file to be saved locally instead of sending the document to the printer, but we didn't find any other major bugs. The version 1.1 update adds a "Buy Green" drop-down menu to the interface. It provides recommendations for products in nine categories, such as paper, ink, software, and technology recycling.

    "It SHOULD be good"

    July 14, 2011   |   By Jim Brunner

    Version: GreenPrint World 2.1.1

    Pros

    I have used GreenPrint in the past and have been very happy with it.

    Cons

    Since I just my new computer Win7 OS, 64 bit, I have downloaded GreenPrint, but so fa have been unable to configure my Canon iP1500 printer to work with the program.

    Summary

    I would love the opportunity to use GreenPrint again, but it just depends on whether or not I can get my printer working with it,

    "Save Ink & Paper"

    October 01, 2010   |   By zarman

    Version: GreenPrint World 2.1.1

    Pros

    Every time you print something you can usually save half or more of the printed pages with Green Print.

    Cons

    Would be nice if you could eliminate more unwanted items from printed pages and then combine what you want printed into even fewer pages.

    Summary

    If you have a printer like mine that wants to print everything it can find, Green Print can save you many pages.
