1) Keep the glass clean
Dust, dirt, and other tiny objects can cause smudges on your documents. To avoid this from happening, you can apply a glass cleaner from time to time, and wipe the surface gently with a towel.
2) Remove unnecessary objects
Having staples, creases, or ink blots on your document will ruin the quality of your copy. To improve the clarity of your copy, remove the staples from your documents, flatten wrinkled paper, and find better ways to cover up the ink blots.
3) Choose the perfect paper
You need to consider choosing the perfect copy paper. There are different types to choose from: laser, inkjet, and multi-purpose. You also need to choose the right thickness and weight to give the copy a better quality.
4) Take advantage of the settings
The settings on your photocopier allow you to control the process with minimal hassle. You can adjust contrast, brightness, and darkness. You can do a test copy and check if the settings you have chosen have improved the quality of your duplicate document. If not, you can try again by choosing another setting until you get the best detail.
5) Use masking tape
If there are some parts of the text that you don’t want to copy, you can cover them up with white tape. Be sure to place the tape on the paper firmly to prevent it from sticking to the surface of the photocopier.
