Top TWO Sure-Fire Ways to Save on Laser Toner.

Do you own a laser printer but are still unclear on what a laser toner cartridge is? 

At Island Ink-Jet and Laser Toners you won’t believe how many of our customers don’t really know what laser toners are or are unclear about the difference between laser toner and ink.

To start, laser toner is just another way of saying “toner cartridge”.  It differs from ink in many ways.  An ink cartridge contains ink available in 4 colours, namely – magenta, yellow, cyan and black. A laser toner contains toner, a find dust-like powder that is fused onto paper by a laser (hence laser printer!). Toner also comes in all the different colours but the most predominant colour used is black for most document printing. Since laser printers are pricier than their inkjet counterparts, you’ll find them in most offices where large volume, fast-turnout printing is required.

When you’re looking to buy laser toner for your printer, OEM or original brand toner (such as HP toner) isn’t your only option. Thanks to the advancement of high quality compatible and remanufactured toner options, you don’t have to break your back or the bank paying for recurring toner cartridge costs.

Here are the top two sure-fire ways to save on laser toner:

Brand New Compatible Laser Toner Cartridges

Compatible toner cartridges are like the name suggests, “compatible” with your laser printer but produced by another manufacturer – not your original printer manufacturer. Compatible cartridges are sometimes referred to as “third-party” laser toner cartridges and are produced under a high standard and strict quality control environment that they often meet and even exceed the print quality and page yield of even the original OEM toner cartridges. The bottom line with compatible laser toner is that it can give you a lot more value for your money and are a prudent alternative IF you buy your compatible toner from a trusted supplier.

Remanufactured Toner Cartridges

Remanufactured toner cartridges are basically empty cartridges that have been recycled and “remanufactured” by certified technicians.  The process involves collecting old laser toner cartridges, cleaning and inspecting, replacing worn out parts and refilling with toner. A reputable manufacturer will ensure that they are tested thoroughly, repackaged and resold.  Buying remanufactured laser toner helps the environment as components are reused instead of chucked into the landfill. If you’re looking to save your hard-earned dollars and do your share for the planet, there’s no doubt that remanufactured toner cartridges are the ideal solution.

You can find both compatible and remanufactured laser toner online and in office supply stores. Make sure you go with a trusted vendor as a faulty cartridge can leak and damage your printer. At Island Ink-Jet all our branded laser toner is produced in an ISO certified facility and comes with a 100% replacement guarantee against defects that’s valid for a FULL year.  Try us for all your laser toner cartridge needs – and see the difference quality and expertise makes!
