How to Clean Printer Ink Spills from Carpet, Clothes and Fabric

Did you get ink on your hands when you tried to replace an ink cartridge or refill a cartridge at home? Printer ink is fairly easy to wash off skin, you might need a couple of scrubs and washes to get it off completely, but it’ll fade away. However, if you’ve wound up with ink on your clothes (or worse – your carpet!) then it’s a different story altogether. If you found this article while browsing for how to remove ink from carpet, clothes or fabric, here’s what you can try to do to limit the stain and the damage. The key is to act immediately! Get hold of some isopropyl alcohol (available in most drug stores, or the pharmacy section in your department chain) and make sure the potency of alcohol is at least 70-90%. Soak a cotton ball or a clean cloth with the alcohol and dab it on the stain. Be careful to not rub in or scrub the area as that might spread the ink and make the stain worse. And at no cost should you pour the isopropyl alcohol right from the bottle onto the fabric. Now dab and blot the ink out with a […]

The Ink and Toner Black Market – A Real Cause for Concern

If you’ve been catching up on current events in the ink and toner industry, you’ve probably heard all about the underground black market for printer ink and printer toner cartridges. If you’re unfamiliar with what we’re talking about, below is an excerpt from the Huffington Post to get you up to speed. Adrian Rodriguez, who worked at a New York law firm has been accused of ordering “more than $376,000 in excess toner from two vendors over a two-year period. He would sell the cartridges – worth $80 to $259 a piece – for as little as $10 “out of the firm’s back door … and using the money to party and otherwise finance his lifestyle,” according to court papers.” When we talk about the toner black market we’re not talking about “employees pilfering pens, paper clips and other items for personal use.” We’re talking about full-blown thought out schemes, like the one used by New York hospital clerk Marque Gumbs, who used “business accounts to place false orders for more costly items such as toner” then resold them at sharp discount prices. When you think of theft and reselling items in the black market, the usual things that come […]

How Printing Firms Need to Adapt with the Changing Times

The printing industry, including commercial printers who do volume printing whether it is business cards, brochures and marketing material, are here to stay. Even with email marketing and other forms of digital communication print is still here to stay. That being said, the printing industry has to keep abreast of emerging change happening in the industry today. In a recent session held in Mumbai, India, Thomas Saggiomo, president and CEO of DG3 Group,  started his speech by saying: “Printing will not go away.” “Printing remains a key element of marketing mix for the foreseeable future. Typically, traditional technology co-exists with newer technologies,” said Saggiomo.” Anticipation of reality and changing accordingly was the theme of Saggiomo’s presentation. Saggiomo shared the tale of two companies: IBM and Eastman Kodak. Both the companies were founded in early 1800s but today one is booming while other is bankrupt. Saggiomo added, “The factors responsible for this lie in the organisations’ leadership skills, courage and definition of reality.” In every industry change is inevitable and those companies who don’t change with the times get left behind. This is evident in the way HP is trying to get into the smart phone market and Lexmark is looking […]
