Inkjet and toner printing supplies are one of the largest expenses at small & large businesses and even for the average consumer. Each time you go to replace the supplies you’re nearly buying the printer over again; inkjets and toner cartridges often cost more than the printer! What if you could replace your printing supplies for less than half of the average price? This article will tell you three ways you can do just that.
♦ Remanufactured inkjet and toner cartridges ♦
The first attempt to saving money on your inkjet or toner printing supplies often results in the purchase of a remanufactured cartridge. Despite the spin made by major manufacturers there are reputable companies that place a lot of work into the quality of their supplies. Remanufactured cartridges (depending on the supply) will often meet the same quality as OEM supplies.
Remanufactured cartridges allow you to save anywhere from 30-50% off the average price for your supplies. Cartridges come in the same design and can be plunked into your printer which allows you to start printing right away.
♦ Inkjet and toner refill kits ♦
Inkjet and toner refill kits have seen a rise in interest over the last decade with many ups and downs. Just as before, choose a reputable business that offers refill kits because quality matters.
Inkjet and toner refill kits are a do-it-yourself kit which allows you to refill your cartridges through either creating a hole in the cartridge or by refilling the hopper through an existing plug. Refilling cartridges will take a few moments and aren’t for everyone but those that have a DIY mindset will be able to save anywhere from 70% to 90% off their printing supplies.
♦ Changing your printer ♦
Although you may already have a printer, in the long-run you will save a lot more money by replacing your printer now than to continually pay for the OEM printing supplies. Inkjet printers have a low page count which is why it’s optimal to purchase a toner-based machine; your toner printer should also be one which has a common toner cartridge and brand name: HP, Lexmark, Brother or Samsung.
Once you’ve replaced your printer you’ll begin to save a phenomenal amount over time with less money going toward the printing supplies and more value returning to you in the form of higher page count and the ability to use the previously mentioned aftermarket supplies.
