Is there any such thing as toner ink? Read on to find out!

Have you heard of the phrase “toner ink”? Did you find this post because you actually searched for toner ink? We’ve always found it amusing when our customers ask us for toner ink because in reality there is no such thing! Ink and toner are two totally different products and utilize different technologies. A lot of people search for “toner ink” online so some companies market themselves as selling toner ink, which is misleading. In this post we’ll aim to understand the core differences between ink and toner which will help you decide which kind of printer to buy (laser or inkjet) and therefore which type of cartridge to use. Let’s start with ink cartridges. In simple terms, a printer using ink cartridges contains actual ink in liquid form. It’s the same concept as using an ink pen and writing on paper. Different companies use different technologies in their ink cartridges. Either heat or vibration is used to apply pressure and shoot the ink onto the paper. Most ink is generally water-based although oil and solvent based inks are also used.  Inkjet cartridges are compact and are easily replaceable. Inkjet printers that use ink cartridges are cost-effective to buy and […]

Why you absolutely SHOULD recycle your printer cartridges.

Before getting into the meat of this post, let’s take a quick look at the facts. Regular toner cartridges, used in laser printers, copiers and fax machines are 40% plastic. EACH cartridge needs 3.7 liters (1 gallon) of oil to make. In the United States alone approximately eleven cartridges are disposed of every SECOND. If you do the math the results are a whopping 375 million cartridges that end up in the landfill annually. The sad part is there are things that we can do to limit this waste that some people don’t think twice about when they chuck a used cartridge into the bin. Some people are aware of recycled cartridges but are afraid to use them due fears about low print quality and printer damage. Let’s aim to debunk some of these recycled printer cartridges myths in this post. Firstly, let’s start by understanding what recycled printer cartridges are.  A toner cartridge consists of many parts – mainly plastic – getting one use out of it and throwing it away is a major waste of resources. In simple words we can define recycled cartridges as those that have been reconstructed from different parts of used printer cartridges. Most […]
