Inkjet printers produce great print. They also produce high maintenance cost. Would you pay over $2,700 for a gallon of gas? I would hope not, but that’s what it would cost you to buy a gallon of brand name ink. Would you like to save 30% on your printing cost? How about 50%? Do you think you could save 90%? The answer is yes to all of these questions. Want to find out how? Over the past twenty years, I cut my printing cost by 70%. I did this by purchasing the cheapest ink cartridges… and I’ve always gotten great quality and quantity of print.
The printer industry uses an interesting marketing plan. It’s similar to other large industries such as cell phones and razor blades. In short, they sell you their main product for cost or less. Why? So they can sell you their consumable back end product at substantial profits. Did you know you’ll quickly pay at least ten times the cost of your original printer purchase just buying replacement printer ink cartridges? There are much better purchase options available, at significantly lower costs.
Cheap Ink Cartridges Versus Quality Print
Brand name printer cartridges are not cheap cartridges. In fact, you’ll pay from 50 to 90% more using them. I’ve saved thousands of dollars over the past twenty years. I get excellent quality print and reasonable prices. Cheap printer ink cartridges do not equate to poor quality printing.
Remanufactured Cartridges are a Cheap Printer Ink Alternative
Remanufactured ink cartridges can save you 50% on your printer budget. A remanufactured cartridge is an original OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) cartridge that has been emptied and returned to the printer manufacturer. The inkjet cartridge is refilled with ink, cleaned and run through multiple quality control tests. Then, it is resold to the public.
Many people use remanufactured printer ink cartridges and never know it. Most major printing companies sell them. Look at the label on your printer ink packaging. Does it say “”manufactured from new and recycled parts”? Then, it’s a remanufactured ink cartridge. But there is a problem. You’re paying full retail price.
If major printer companies sell remanufactured cartridges, why not purchase an equivalent cartridge from a third party company (without the brand name on the label) and cut your cost in half? Let me know when you figure that out.
Compatible Ink Cartridges Means Cheap Ink Prices
Depending on your make and model of printer, compatible inkjet printer cartridges can save you up to 70%. Some people are confused about compatible ink cartridges. They are sometimes called generic ink cartridges, which is true. However, a compatible ink cartridge is a brand new cartridge. It is not a remanufactured printer cartridge. It is manufactured to the same standards and specifications as your original ink cartridge.
There has been significant improvement in the technology and printer industry over the past few years. However, there are still some companies that sell inferior compatible print cartridges. Make sure you’re purchasing high quality cartridges. Verify that the company is manufacturing their compatible cartridges in an ISO-9001 certified factory. This factory certification guarantees you are getting the highest quality compatible cartridges.
Some people have been scared by false advertising which suggests using compatible and remanufactured cartridges will void their printer warranty. That is false. Laws have been passed making this illegal. In the U.S., the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Improvement Act protects your rights and your printer warranty.
Using a compatible or remanufactured inkjet cartridge will not void you warranty unless the manufacturer can prove that the compatible product caused direct damage to your printer. Again, make sure you purchase your ink cartridges from a reliable company that has produced them in an ISO-9001 certified factory. You won’t have problems.
Printer Ink Refill Kits Give You the Cheapest Printer Ink Option
You can save up to 90% on your printer cost by refilling your own printer cartridge. You’ll need a printer refill kit. This kit has the instructions, tools and ink needed to refill your own ink cartridge. Be sure to follow the instructions to avoid any messy ink stains. It will take you about ten minutes to refill your cartridge once you get the hang of it. You can refill your printer cartridge, on the average, about five times. Then, you’ll need to buy a new printer cartridge. If you buy a compatible cartridge and refill it five times, it will substantially reduce your total cost.
Large Selection of Cheap Ink Cartridges Online
Online ordering has significantly changed the way many companies do business. The best deals and largest selection of quality cheap ink cartridges are online. You can find discount prices for every make and model of inkjet printer. The most important thing to remember is to always do business with a reputable online company. Here’s how to find them. Look for:
- A company that has been in business at least five years. The longer the better.

- A company that provides you with a tracking number so you know exactly when to expect your printer cartridges.
