This article explains the criteria on how printed pages are counted and details the steps on how to determine page balance.


Method of Counting

Pages refer to printed side per color plane. See the equivalent page count deducted for each printed page below.



Color printing decreases page balance by four per page.
Two-sided printing decreases page balance by two per page.
Black-and-white printing decreases page balance by one per page.
