When The Right Time Is To Purchase New Printer Cartridges

2010-08-10

The right time to purchase new printer cartridges isn't when a printer is out of ink and needs to be refilled. There are several factors that need to be considered in determining the right time to purchase a new printer cartridge. These factors include having enough ink on hand to print in an emergency when you need to, when printer cartridges may be cheapest or on sale, and when expected demand for printing is high and the inventory of ink cartridges on hand is not enough to meet the expected demand.

The first factor to consider: purchase cartridges before an emergency.

Purchasing printer cartridges when the ink has already been depleted can lead to problems. By then, the printer won't be able to print until a new printer cartridge has been ordered and installed. This may take time and you may lose the ability to print when you need to. Instead, the right time to purchase cartridges is when ink is running low but when there's still enough to print in an emergency. That way, you have just enough ink to take care of a last minute print job and you are not stuck in a situation where you wish you had just a little bit of ink left.

The second factor to consider: purchase cartridges on sale.

When you purchase printer cartridges when you absolutely need to, you are at the mercy of the market. But when you purchase cartridges on sale, you can stock up and have an extra cartridge on hand. This can be useful and cost-effective in the long run particularly if you purchase cartridges in bulk. The more you buy on sale, the more you save and have in stock when you need it. Depending on how much you print, this might be the right time to purchase a new printer cartridge.

The third factor to consider: purchase cartridges in advance of large demand.

If you know you are going to be printing a lot in the near future, you can purchase cartridges in advance. That way, you are not caught off guard and without the printer cartridges you need. This is the right time to purchase new printer cartridges instead of waiting at the last minute where market prices and availability may not be in your favor.

These three factors can help you determine the right time to purchase new printer cartridges. The right time isn't when you run out and you don't have any cartridges left, or even when you have enough ink at present but anticipate the need for more ink in the near future. Purchasing printer cartridges at the right time can save you time, money and potential complications.
