Printer question

Dear Friends:
I have had an Epson ET-2720 printer for just over a year. Tend to love it. had to use the print clean function a couple of times. Still on first bottles of ink.
My question is I have the habit of leaving the printer on for weeks at a time should I be turning it off after I print something?
Thanks
Miles

No, keep it on
if you want to print something after a while, run a test print or cleaning cycle
the printer tends to use more ink during start up to "charge" the print heads, when the printer is on, the heads are primed for that print job to start.

Laser printers do not suffer from the ink/toner wasting when starting up, but they do need time to warm up, and make sure the fuser is clean.
