Normally, average cost of color copies will always depend on the place where you are making them. If you opt to make them at home, the overall price can be high because the cost of cartridges for print machines is expensive. From the other side, when making your copies at online or local print stores, the price can be significantly lower. This of course works only for bulk copies, and not if you are planning to make a just a couple of them.

The final price of color copies will depend on a variety of factors – types of paper, size of paper, quality of the print you pretend, and similar. Also, you should know that there are also single or double sized copies that can affect the final price of your color copies.

There are a lot of places where you can have your cheap color copies done. Some of the most popular local print companies are FedEx Kinko’s or Office Depot. Some of the cheapest color copies prices in such and similar larger print stores are around 45 – 50 cents but can be a bit higher as well. For example, double sided color copies can cost even the double of the mentioned rate – about 95 cents for example. For this reason, it will not be a bad idea checking the prices in various printers before you decide where you will have your color copies done.  In some situations, some printers will have special discounts or promotions, and this is the right time for you to save some extra money.
