The Best Options For High Quality Printer Ink

2011-07-30

Printer ink costs have surpassed the costs of printers themselves in just the last few years. One of the main reasons this has occurred is because printer manufacturers noticed that most of their revenue was coming from printer ink sales and not the printers. Printers seem to far outlast the ink they use, so companies and individuals alike must constantly purchase printer ink to keep their equipment running. But there are still ways to save on the price of high quality printer ink so that you're not spending a whole lot on its purchase. There are actually a few options to get the best printer ink at a fraction of the cost that you would normally pay in the store. Find out what these options are so that you can begin getting the best printer ink at affordable costs.

High quality printer ink doesn't have to cost a fortune; in fact, it doesn't. Rather than buy your printer ink directly from the manufacturer, which could be quite expensive, think about buying your ink from a third party vendor. This type of vendor can often be found online, but it also has physical stores that sell electronics and other products. Since the third party vendors purchase their printer ink from the manufacturer in bulk, they receive a discount; that discount is then passed onto the customer. This is why you can find affordable Dell, HP and other name brand printer inks for much less than you would normally pay.

If the printer ink is for a business, you can consider buying your ink in bulk as well. You can circumvent the middle man and go directly to the source by getting a bulk discount. The more you buy, the cheaper each individual ink cartridge will cost. Be aware, however, that ink does have an expiration date and if you don't do a heavy amount of printing, this may not be the best option.

Remanufactured printer ink cartridges are also a good idea, as are generic brands and printer ink refills. These are alternatives to purchasing the brand name inks while still getting a high quality printer ink. When ink is remanufactured, it is essentially worked on until it is brand new, and filled with high quality ink. Generic ink is the same quality, except the ink isn't the exact match to its brand name counterpart since the chemical makeup is trademarked. But generic ink is almost exactly like the brand name ink and works just as well. If you do not want to purchase the cartridge, you can go for the ink refills, in which you put the ink you want into the printer.
