How To Make Sure Cheap Printer Ink Cartridges Are Still High Quality

2011-04-21

The reasons for purchasing printer ink cartridges cheap, either in a local store or from online wholesalers, have been articulated again and again; cost savings, convenience, and efficiency all make this a viable option for any home or business. However, ensuring that your printer ink cartridges cheap retain the necessary high quality still requires care and attention. Buying an inferior ink cartridge can actually result in a net loss, as the possible damage to your printer or inferior quality of printed documents may outweigh any cost savings from buying the inexpensive brand. There are three ways to ensure that these printer ink cartridges are both high quality and cheap.

First, buy your printer ink cartridges from a well-known wholesaler or internet distributor. Companies which sell inferior products quickly develop a reputation for the low quality, and often go out of business or sell only minimal amounts of their products. A wholesaler with a large selection or large clientele clearly sells products that you can rely upon-otherwise, the business would not have so much support.

Second, do the research on the individual manufacturer of the specific ink cartridges you purchase. With the vast amounts of information freely available over the internet, there is no excuse not to do minimal searching to ensure that the company is reputable and known for high quality products. In addition to a general search, there are also numerous consumer satisfaction websites where customers can discuss products that you can use to learn more about your chosen brand. Remember, though, that as with all online sources these message boards are the highly subjective opinions of individuals, which may or may not reflect reality. However, reading these websites will give you the broad consensus view of your product, which will help you to make your decision.

Third, start your orders small to test the quality of the ink. When you receive the package, note the labeling and design of the box. It may seem petty, but good design means they care about their product enough to make it aesthetically pleasing. Then, print a test page using your new ink, and examine the page closely to see if the image looks crisp and uses the proper colors. Finally, run a finger over the ink after it dries; if it still smudges, the ink has not dried properly and may indicate an inferior quality.

If you follow these three steps, you can rest safely in the knowledge that your cheap printer ink cartridge also retains the high quality of the brand name manufacturers. Do this small amount of research and you too can enjoy the savings, convenience, and efficiency of wholesaler prices for ink cartridges.
