How to calculate coverage?

Sorry about the above msg, i pushed the Submit button (instead of Preview) and... here we go...

Lemme ask the question now:

How do i calculate the coverage cost?

I have a laser printer using CMYK toners. each of toners are marked as lasting 10000 pages at 5% coverage. I assume that reffers to 8.5 x 11 (letter size pages,) right?

ok, I measured in a PS file and the software reported:

Average CMYK

and the Page Total coverage density is 43.35% (8.67 compared to 5%)


how should i calculate the cost now?

should i report that the page is 43.35% covered, instead of 5% and do the math for that value?

or by individual colors and add them together?

thanx, this software is amazing

If you want to calculate cost you should separate colors in your editor and estimate page coverage for every separated color. You'll get results on "5% covarage" page for every color. To estimate cost you can see "5% page equivalent" result - just multiple it to cost of 5% page for the same color.
