What do you do when your printer is out of black ink and you really need to print a form?

Maybe you can use the color ink cartridge to print a substitute!

This tool converts your PDF so that it will print in almost-black. It is easy to vary how much “black” the tool automatically converts. And you can choose a number of different target colors — maybe your color cartridge is out of black and green, but it has blue! Or red!

This will change all colors in:

  • fonts and text
  • images
  • graphics
  • pictures
  • lines
  • shapes
  • headings
  • titles
  • footnotes
  • captions
  • headers

Print a form, shipping label, homework, and pictures when your printer runs out of ink!

If the above doesn’t work, try removing your black ink cartridge — sometimes this “tricks” your printer and makes it print black from the color cartridge!
