Solid Advice for Purchasing Third-Party Inkjet Cartridges

If you’ve read some of our previous posts you’re aware of some of the infographics out there talking about the crazy prices that today’s ink cartridges run at – the black liquid is more expensive per ounce than expensive perfume like Chanel No. 5! No wonder, consumers are getting increasingly vigilant about their ink cartridge use and are looking for alternative ink cartridge options in the market. Although refilled ink cartridges can be a great option if you get your cartridges refilled at a reliable ink refiller, for the purpose of this post we’ll focus solely on aftermarket or third-party inkjet cartridges. What are third-party inkjet cartridges? Let’s start by identifying what third party ink is. Cartridges made by the same brand as your printer are referred to as Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) cartridges. For example, a HP ink cartridge manufactured specifically for your HP OfficeJet Printer. Third-party ink cartridges, or non-branded non-OEM cartridges, are not made by your original printer brand manufacturer but by another company that promises that their cartridges are compatible with your printer. Why not all third-party inkjet cartridges are created equal. There’s been a lot of debate and argument over if third-party inks are worth […]

Earth Day is fast approaching on April 22nd 2013. Although ideally we should be thinking of ways to go green every day of the year, Earth day is a good way of reminding ourselves on taking steps to make the planet a better place to live for us and for future generations. We at Island Ink-Jet and Laser Toners would like to remind our readers that just as easily as you would think of recycling paper or plastic, you can recycle your ink and toner cartridges. Why recycle ink and toner cartridges? Here are a few reasons why you should take ink and toner cartridge recycling seriously as published in The Wall Street Journal: The following statistics shed light on the impact of printer cartridges on the environment: — Alone, HP ships more than 52 million printers per year. Most consumers buy three to four ink cartridges three times per year for their printer at home, which produces 600 million empty cartridges. — Almost eight printer cartridges are thrown away per second in the United States. — It takes about a gallon of oil to make a new laser cartridge. — Seventy percent of used printer cartridges throughout the world […]

Can Buying an Expensive Printer Save You More Money in Ink or Toner?

Purchasing the printer you want, especially one that fits in your budget, should be simple right? Unfortunately it isn’t. Buying an inkjet printer or a laser printer has more to do with doing your homework on how much it’s going to cost you to run the printer – in terms of buying ink or toner for the printer. You’ll soon find that cartridges can quickly cost a lot more than the printer you bought and if you’re looking for a economical printer you’ll have to consider how much your printer ink or toner costs depending on how much printing you’re planning on doing. Here are a few factors to consider right off the bat as published in an article titled Ink-onomics: Can You Save Money By Spending More on Your Printer? by PCWorld: The cheaper the printer, the more expensive its inks. We’ve tracked the prices of 56 inkjet MFPs over the past two years, and the average cost per page for inks destined for a cheap printer (which we define as one costing less than $200) has consistently been higher than that for an expensive printer (one costing $200 or more). A good example is the comparison between a […]
