Ways To Avoid Paying Far Too Much For Business Printer Ink

2010-12-03

Printer ink can be a pricey necessity for any business. Because of the printing demands of most businesses, the cost of constantly replacing print cartridges can add up quickly. There are, however, a few ways that businesses can attempt to lower their yearly printer ink costs.

One of the easiest ways to avoid rising costs of printer ink is to shop around. These days, there are a number of different websites and tools you can use to comparison shop for printer cartridges that best fit your printer and your business needs. Printers and printer cartridges are a huge business: There are a seemingly countless number of options out there. Don't automatically go with your local store or the easiest option. As a business you'll be purchasing so much ink in the long run that it's worth it to do the research and find the best prices.

Another way to combat rising printer ink costs is to consider refilling, rather than replacing your ink cartridges. Refill kits are now sold everywhere, and as long as the recommended steps are taken, they are easy to use and extremely economical. Refilling your cartridges is an easy way to stop paying too much for ink.

Also, consider purchasing a remanufactured or compatible cartridge. Do a bit of research and decide if you need to purchase an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) cartridge or if you can purchase a compatible or remanufactured one. This can save an incredible amount of money, as you're not paying for the brand name or for a printer cartridge that is new.

Finally, another way to avoid skyrocketing ink costs that may seem obvious: Take care of the printer and follow recommended steps to replacing or refilling print cartridges. The average business printer takes quite a bit of abuse and is used constantly. Ensuring that the printer is regularly maintained can prolong the life of the printer and cartridges, and therefore reduce the amount of money spent on printer cartridges. Also, following the recommended steps for replacing or refilling ink cartridges can bring down the costs of printer ink. If, in an attempt to save money, you wait until the cartridge is completely empty, you risk damaging the ink heads in the cartridge (and thus pretty much eliminating your chances of successfully refilling the ink cartridge) and the printer itself, which can end up costing your business more in the long run.

There's no way around it: printer ink is a costly necessity for any business. But taking a few easy steps can help prolong the life of your printer cartridges and save your business an incredible amount of money in the long run.
