Choosing Printer Ink Presents You With Two Choices

by : Craig Thornburrow

There are two main options available to you as far as it goes for printer ink. You can purchase a new ink cartridge or refill your current one. In this article, both of these options will be discussed. You will learn the advantages and disadvantages of each one.

When you’re needing new ink for your printer, you need to decide how much you’re willing to spend and if you want to just plug it in the printer or if you are willing to put in a little effort to save on the cost of the printer ink. Saving money on ink can definitely add up rather quickly. If you own a printer, you probably know how expensive new ink cartridges can get.

Printer ink refills are growing in popularity each and every day. This option allows you to save a little bit of money over using new ones. Truthfully, this is the option I prefer, as I use my printer quite often for business and personal use. The money that I save will allow me to invest it into other things. For any business, this is a very good option. The only disadvantage is you have to refill the printer cartridge yourself, unless you go to a store that sells refilled cartridges.?

If you want to buy new cartridges and be able to plug them into the printer and print away, this is a more expensive option. For some, it can be worth it for ease of mind or convenience. Being more expensive than refills is one of the major disadvantages of course. The other disadvantage is that new ink cartridges have been known to have expiration dates. This causes the cartridge to stop working even if you still have ink left in it. This makes it more expensive for the end user. If you own a business and wanted to use new cartridges, it would be nice to save the money by using ink refills. However, you could just write the new printer ink cartridges off on your taxes. If you did this, it probably wouldn’t even matter to you.

There are quite a few suppliers for new ink cartridges that are actively in the market. These include, but are definitely not limited to, Canon, Lexmark, HP, and Epson. Of course, you could use the cheaper manufacturers if you choose to do so. Many businesses have been formed around selling refilled printer cartridges as well as ink refill kits. You can take a look on Google and come up with a pretty big list of these types of companies that are within the printer ink industry.

This should give you a good idea of the options that are out there for printer ink. You should choose the option that suits you the best, as nobody knows your needs better than yourself. Hopefully, this article has helped you gain the information that you need in order to proceed with a decision.
